The Tradition Lyrics


American Pie

Lyrics to The Tradition
The Tradition Video:
Born and raised from immigrant blood, Made a hardworking man out of me
The Code I live by is the Honor and honesty
What I learned was passed down, from the ghosts of my family
Lessons learned long before, They came from across the sea

{Friendship in struggle, courage in battle, wisdom in rage
Ardor in labor, Piety in love, Knowledge is sage [x2]}

Sacrifice don't always have a reward, Courage is something you can't afford
Pittsburgh steel in my fathers eye, Gave me the will to win and the guts to try
He showed no weakness not even a trace, 'til he broke his fist on my face
He went from US Steel to MIT, I cherish what my parents taught to me:


When I'm older I'll raise a family, I'll give them the substance that tempered me
They taught me the meaning of being the best I can, They raised me to be a true American
