I never have a free weekend to party or have fun
I work in the fields and don't stop until the day is done 
From six in the morning till seven at night 
I don't stop working until there is no one in sight 
I am not alone, I work with my family 
You have to work hard because this is reality 
Working together we barely get to pay all the bills 
Working in the fields doesn't need a specific skill 
But I didn't  want this life I want to go farther then high School 
Because Education is the most important tool 
I want to keep on studying and have a better life
So that way in the future I won't struggle to support my kids and my wife 
I am an immigrant 
And one day I wish to be a citizen 
To enjoy things like everyone else
And be able to be myself 
There are students like me all over the nation 
We can be smart, athletic or talented but we will never have a collage graduation 
It's been 12 years and the Dream Act has not been passed
And for years thousands of students have asked 
"Let the act pass and please let us learn"
This is a choice that gives everyone a good turn 
America will grow bigger and improve 
And our education rank will surely move 
I will never give up and fight everyday 
I am a DREAMer and my dreams won't fade away
