The Great American Dream
(Lyrics and Music by Rocky Michaels)

Down at the beach there’s a guy and his girl holding hands
He kisses her as the horizon sun touches the sand
And a few miles down there’s a couple walking the dog
They’ll return home, she’ll make dinner, he’ll throw on a log

They say if you work very hard you can go far
And you’ll find happiness and success there wherever you are
Down at work he is climbing the ladder, more awards on his shelves
Ah, but he’ll hurry home ‘cause his kids want him all to themselves

Oh-ho, the Great American Dream
Life can be full of false promises so it may seem
Oh the Great American Dream
Will it always elude me can I break the routine or am I too late for the Great American Dream

Now everything’s changed since I left my ol’ high school
John bought a house on the hill with a big swimming pool
And Bob’s thirty-one and that son-of-a-gun settled down
He and his bride with their child by their side live in town

I’m not asking for white picket fences or two-point-five kids
I don’t need to live in the suburban development grids
I just want a good life with a sweet lovin’ wife and a place to call my own
And a way to get by so that honey and I can look back at our kids and say “My, how they’ve grown!”

The Great American Dream
Life can be full of false promises so it may seem
Oh the Great American Dream
Will it always elude me can I break the routine or am I too late for the Great...

(American Dream) Tell me the secret
(American Dream) Show me the way
(American Dream) Then how do you keep it
Mmmm from slipping away
(American Dream) That’s all that I’ve wanted
(American Dream) Well I need a scheme
(American Dream) ‘cause my vision is haunted
Don’t want to die before living the Great American Dream
