    Lyrics

    They used to tell me I was building a dream
    And so I followed the mob
    When their was earth to plow or guns to bear
    I was always their 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
    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
    Brick and rivet and lime
    Once I built a tower, now it's done
    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell
    Full of that Yankee-Doodly-dum
    Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell
    And I was the kid with the drum

    Say, don't you remember, they called me "Al"
    It was "Al" all the time
    Why don't you remember, I'm your pal
    Say buddy, can you spare a dime?

    Once in khaki suits, ah gee we looked swell
    Full of that Yankee-Doodly-dum
    Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell
    And I was the kid with the drum

    Oh, say, don't you remember, they called me "Al"
    It was "Al" all the time
    Say, don't you remember, I'm your pal
    Buddy, can you spare a dime?
