Let's All Be Americans Now lyrics

Album: Cheek To Cheek: Irving Berlin Songbook

(Irving Berlin, Edgar Leslie & Geo. W. Meyer)

[1st verse:]
Peace has always been our pray'r
Now there's trouble in the air
War is talked of ev'rywhere
Still in God we trust
now that war's declared
we'll show we're prepared
and if fight we must
It's up to you!
What will you do?

England or France may have your sympathy
Over the sea
But you'll agree

Now is the time
To fall in line

You swore that you would so be true to your vow
Let's all be Americans now

[2nd verse:]
Lincoln, Grant and Washington
They were peaceful men each one
Still they took the sword and gun
When real trouble came
And I feel somehow, they are wond'ring now
If we'll do the same
