IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Let's All Be Americans Now

IRVING BERLIN
"Let's All Be Americans Now"
(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
We're not looking for any kind of war
But if fight we must

[Refrain:]
It's up to you!
What will you do?

England or France may have your sympathy
Or Germany
But you'll agree
That

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
