Immigrant Lyrics

Artist: Neil Sedaka


Harbours opened their arms to the young searching foreigner
Come to live in the light of the beacon of liberty
Planes and open skies, billboards would advertise
Was it anything like that when you arrived
Dreamboats carry the future to the heart of America
People were waiting in line for a place by the river
It was a time when strangers were welcome here
Music would play, they tell me the days were sweet and clear
It was a sweeter tune and there was so much room that people could come from everywhere
Now he arrives with his hopes and his heart set on miracles
Come to marry his fortune with a hand full of promises
to find they've closed the door, they don't want him anymore
isn't anymore to go around
Turning away he remembers he once heard
a legend that spoke of a mystical magical land called America
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
Music would play, they tell me the days were sweet and clear
It was a sweeter tune and there was so much room that people could come from everywhere
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
Music would play, they tell me the days were sweet and clear
There was a time when strangers were welcome here
Music would play, they tell me the days were sweet and clear

Oh those were the days! Neil, Thanks for the memories. Those emigrants came here legally& we welcome legal ones today.It's the ones that come in through the back door that are not welcome.Look at what's happening in Arizona & you will have to agree we have a problem.The sad thing is that our goverment is noy intellegent
enough to handle the problem.It is hard for Americans to realise there are NO ONE in Washington with GUTS ENOUGH to stand on our constitution(which gives us guidelines to handle problems)and ACT accordingly.Our ordanary citizens know how but are hindered by a police state of goverment.Don Maggard

This song was written for John Lennon.. Your country didn't want him. Then they killed him. Still proud of your "Country of the "free" ?
