O beautiful for freedom's press

That serves the common good

Pursuing civic truthfulness

As every patriot should.

America! America!

God save us from Fake News

And public lies we'll all defy

Despite our private views!

Washington, D.C.


O beautiful for immigrants

Of every race and hue!

From east and west they come to us

To make their lives anew.

America! America!

Keep wide the golden door,

Lest we repeal our brave ideal

And mourn forever more.

Washington, D.C.
