the house l live in

.

I remember singing this song as part of a children’s chorus in grade school. In this scene from the movie of the same name as the song, Sinatra interrupts a group of kids who are taunting a Jewish boy, and you can see for yourself how it is resolved.

If only it were so easy—then and now.

    I heard that radio segment last night on the way home. And I remember our high school chorus singing that song, but they called it “What is America to me?”

    Yeah, I heard the segment too, and was reminded of the song after all these years. I thought readers would appreciate being able to download both versions. It’s a little more inspirational than “You Have to Be Carefully Taught” (South Pacific).
