The farmers rise up every mornin at five
The truckers drive them 18 wheelers all night
The factory workers, they build it with pride
24-7 down the assembly line
In every city, in every town
Somebody's gotta make the world go round

[Chorus]
We the people move it
We the people know
We the people
We run the country
We the people prove it
We're the heart and soul
We the people
We are the country
Here's to every salesman on the telephone line
And every waitress workin hard for those dimes
The middle managers who punch overtime
And anyone fighting wars, fires, and crimes
Day after day, year after year
The mint might print but the buck stops here

[Chorus]

We pay the taxes
We pay the bills
So they better pay attention up on capital hill

We the people move it
We the people know
We the people
We run the country
We the people choose it
We the people vote
We the people
We run the country
We the people rock it
We the people roll
We the people
We are the country
