The Statue of Liberty outside of Birmingham
Stands by the highway, raises its lily white hand
Boatloads of people rush to America's Birmingham

And you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't
So you get yourself a job just to take something home
Now there's food on the table but nothing left over in Birmingham

Birmingham is just a place
Birmingham is just a place to be

And you're working for nothing, making a living
Meanwhile the kingpins are making a killing
Boatloads of people are ready and willing in Birmingham

We live on the edge of a brand new world order
Breaking down factories, breaking down borders
The only surprise is the dream's still alive down in Birmingham

Birmingham is just a place
Birmingham is just a place to be

The Statue of Liberty outside of Birmingham
Stands by the highway, raises its lily white hand
To bless all who pass the rush hour, masses of Birmingham
