Citizen of the World



I'm an American
Was born of Scottich blood
I got a Frenchmen's eyes and ears
I got the walk of an British thug

There's an African in my skin
Seminole are my kin
I'm a man of a thousand faces
Many nations, creeds and races

I am
I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
of the world
of the world
of the world
of the world
of the world

Blue September day
Sky came tumbling down
Living in a world of hate
Crying at heaven's gate

Our nation's a tougher one
Muslims Jews and Christians
Father Michael says a prayer
Whispered up into thin air

I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
of the world
of the world
of the world
of the world

Scarecrow in an oil field
Soldier in the sand
Seeds of violence
Seads of peace
What will grow in the holy land

If I could talk to Ghandi, talk to Christ
Talk to Mohammed, ask advice
Oh Saint Theresa, MLK
We need your advice
Cause it's judgement day

I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
I am
I am
I am
I am
a citizen
of the world
of the world
of the world
of the world
