Everybody Counts

Listen people for I’ve something to tell you of a boy who immigrated to this land
They were poor they worked hard even he picked cotton he was mute but soon began to understand

There were those who saw he was a little different some were mean and others helped him find his way
Learned our language and what’s possible for each and everyone stands for truth and fights for justice every day

Javier stands with pride as an American he brings a change listen what he has to say
With your support he continues to fight for what’s right he heard the call to serve the USA

Protect the rights of others was his mission knowing this his hopes and dreams of life began
Dedicated to the truth he became a citizen mastered English and he fought in Vietnam

Javier stands with pride as an American he brings a change listen what he has to say
With your support he continues to fight for what’s right he heard the call to serve the USA

He says everybody counts and strives to change what is wrong not regretting or forgetting his past
Survived a war and overcame adversity ushers in a hope for change at last

Javier stands with pride as an American he brings a change listen what he has to say
With your support he continues to fight for what’s right he heard the call to serve the USA

Javier stands with pride as an American he brings  a change listen what he has to say
With your support he continues to fight for what’s right he heard the call to serve the USA
With your support he continues to fight for what’s right he heard the call to serve the USA
