Ein interessanter Text im zweiten Jahr des Ersten Weltkriegs:


A hundred thousand refugees have fled from the war,

Weary and worn, tired and torn,

Houses burning, no returning, hearts overflow,

They're grieving, at leaving, with no place to go.

As they toil on their way,

Now I seem to hear them say:



We will build a little home in the U.S.A.

In the land of the stripes and stars;

We'll leave behind us the sorrows and cares of war,

And the Kaiser, the Kings and Czars.

Uncle Sam spreads his arms across the ocean,

And I know he'll never turn us away,

So we'll sail across the foam,

And we'll build a little home in the U.S.A.


We'll go where we will never hear the guns' awful roar,

Where there's no war, peace ever more,

Father, mother, sister, brother, happy they'll be,

All cheering, while nearing our Liberty.

As we speed on our way

To the good old U.S.A.
