Lyrics:
Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains,
 here all life abounds
Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain,
 here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled
 this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's
 delights
Painted desert, sequined sky, stars thatfill the night,
 here all life abounds
Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure and bright,
 here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled
        this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's
        delights
So the maiden lies in waiting, for the sails to reach
 the shore
Land of beauty and abundance, innocent, you
 opened wide your door
Wanderers found the witing treasure, full of gifts
 beyond their measure
Milk and honey for our pleasure.....
Across the sea there came a multitude, sailing ships
 upon the wave
Filled with visions of Utopia, and the freedom that
 they crave
Ravage, plunder, see no wonder, rape and kill and
 tear asunder
Chop the forest, plow it under.....
Highways scar the mountainsides, buildings to the
 sky, people all around
Houses stand in endless rows, sea to shining sea,
 people all around
So we rule this land, and here we stand upon our
 paradise,
Dreaming of a place, our weary race is ready to arise.
