Each of us is exceptional…

…no matter what SOMEONE ELSE may say!

They used to tell me I was building a dream

And so I followed the mob

When there was earth to plow or guns to bear

I was always there, right on the job

 

They used to tell me I was building a dream

With peace and glory ahead

Why should I be standing in line

Just waiting for bread?

 

Once I built a railroad, I made it run

Made it race against time

Once I built a railroad, now it’s done

Brother, can you spare a dime?

 

Once I built a tower up to the sun

Brick and rivet and lime

Once I built a tower, now it’s done

Brother, can you spare a dime?

 

Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell

Full of that Yankee Doodly Dum

Half a million boots went slogging through Hell

And I was the kid with the drum

 

Say, don’t you remember? They called me ‘Al’

It was ‘Al’ all the time

Why don’t you remember?

I’m your pal

Say buddy, can you spare a dime?

 

Once in khaki suits, ah, gee, we looked swell

Full of that Yankee Doodly Dum

Half a million boots went slogging through Hell

And I was the kid with the drum

 

Oh, say, don’t you remember? They called me ‘Al’

It was ‘Al’ all the time

Say, don’t you remember?

I’m your pal Buddy, can you spare a dime?
