Lyrics

The Immigrant (Live) - Neil Sedaka

Harbours open their arms

To the young searching foreigner

 

Come to live in the light of the beacon of liberty

 

Plains and open skies

 

Billboards would advertise

 

Was it anything like

That when you arrived

 

Dream boats carried

The future to the heart of America

 

People were waiting

In line for a place by the river

 

It was a time when

Strangers were welcome here

 

Music would play they

Tell me the days were sweet and clear

 

It was a sweeter tune

 

And there was so much room

 

That people could come from everywhere

 

Now he arrives with

His hopes and his heart set on miracles

 

Come to marry his fortune

With a hand full of promises

 

To find they've closed the door

 

They don't want him anymore

 

There isn't any more to go around

 

Turning away he remembers

He once heard a legend

 

That spoke of a mystical

Magical land called America

 

There was a time when

Strangers were welcome here

 

Music would play they

Tell me the days were sweet and clear

 

It was a sweeter tune

 

And there was so much room

 

That people could come from everywhere

 

There was a time when

Strangers were welcome here

 

Music would play they

Tell me the days were sweet and clear

 

There was a time when

Strangers were welcome here

 

Music would play they

Tell me the days were sweet and clear
