Sing SIng Sing We're gathered here tonight to do a sacred thing sing sing sing, sing sing sing sing sing sing, sing It says in the Bible somewhere that singing is praying times two and whenever angels show up it always seems that's what they do We're gathered here tonight to do a sacred thing sing sing sing, sing sing sing millions of pilgrims every day visit Mecca and I've heard it said when you hear their song millions singing all at once it's a sound you'll never forget We're gathered here tonight to do a sacred thing sing sing sing, sing sing sing the Navajo and Cherokee Lakota and Cheyenne Shawnee, Pawnee, Crow and Cree all had one common thread beside the one Great Spirit and the one Mother Earth they all raise their voices for all that they are worth We're gathered here tonight to do a sacred thing sing sing sing, sing sing sing

you won't find it shining in the marble halls of Wall Street or in the ticker tape pages of the papers they read you can't see it in the flickering glitter of your TV screen or the silicone smiles or empty eyes of super-model party society queens but there's a light that burns eternal not dimmed by the veils of neglect or of greed Lady Liberty keeps shining I see it in the men who wait with friends for work in my town as they stand broke but still joking over coffee each morning though only one in ten will be chosen and the rest will keep waiting never losing hope as they cope with poverty we can't even understand there's a light that burns eternal not dimmed by the veils of neglect or of greed Lady Liberty keeps shining you won't find it in congress's chambers making laws to protect us or in the president's jet as he meets the cabinet he's selected these women and men have forgotten their reasons for running but the people they've sworn to represent will always go down fighting Shine shine shine shine 'cause there's a light that burns eternal not dimmed by the veils of neglect or of greed Lady Liberty keeps shining
