    Lyrics

    They used to tell me
    I was building a dream.
    And so I followed the mob
    When there was earth to plow
    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
    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 doodle dee 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 doodle dee 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?
