Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? (E.Y. Harburg and J. Gorney) They used to tell me I was building a dream And so I followed the mob When there was earth to plough or guns to bear I was always there, right on the job They used to tell me I was building a dream With peace and glory ahead Why should I be standing in line Just waiting for bread? Once I built a railroad, I made it run I made it race against time Once I built a railroad, now it's done Brother, can you spare a dime? Once I built a tower, up to the sun Bricks & mortar & lime Once I built a tower, now it's done Brother... (bridge) Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell Full of that Yankee-Doodly-dum Half a million boots went slogging through Hell And I was the kid with the drum Say, don't you remember, you called me "Al" It was "Al" all the time Say don't you remember, I was your pal Brother...
