AMERICA'S BEST

SEEMS LIKE EVERY DAY, IN AMERICA,
OUR BEST AND BRAVEST STEP RIGHT UP TO - FIGHT OUR WARS
THEY WERE NEWLY WEDS, IN TEARS IN BED
HE'S BEEN CALLED UP, LOOKS LIKE NEXT STOP - DESERT STORM
AND WHEN HE WHISPERED - WAIT RIGHT HER, I'LL BE BACK IN A YEAR
SHE SAID, "YOU'RE HERE TONIGHT" - THEN OUT WENT THE LIGHTS

AND THEY GAVE LOVE THEIR BEST
NO HOLDING BACK, NO REGRETS
SHE SAID "AND DON'T YOU FORGET
YOU'RE AMERICA'S BEST"

NOW IT'S - NINE MONTHS LATER IN THE MIDDLE EAST
BULLETS FLEW AND BEFORE HE KNEW, HIS - WORLD TURNED GRAY
THEN HE WOKE TO VOICES - BE-SIDE HIS BED
DOC SAID "GET HIM UP, 'LOOKS LIKE NEXT STOP - U-S-A"
IN TEARS HE TOLD THEM - TELL HER I'M OK, LET HER I'M ON MY WAY
TO EARN THE SACRIFICE, OF THE ONES WHO LOST THEIR LIVES

'CAUSE THEY GAVE IT THEIR BEST
NO HOLDING BACK, NO REGRETS
I WON'T EVER FORGET
THEY'RE AMERICA'S BEST

BACK IN THE WORLD HIS LITTLE BABY GIRL, WAS BORN - THAT SAME DAY
THEN TURN THE PAGE A COUPLE DECADES -SHE'S A SOLDIER AND HERO, SOME WOULD SAY

NOW SHE GIVES IT HER BEST
NO HOLDING BACK, NO REGRETS
PROUD TO SERVE AND PROTECT
SHE'S AMERICA'S BEST

YES, THEY GIVE IT THEIR BEST
NO HOLDING BACK, NO REGRETS
PROUD TO SERVE AND PROTECT
THEY'RE AMERICA'S BEST
