As I sit here on the sidewalk,
Watching the parade…
Red, white and blue pass by,
While I drink my lemonade.
And then I stop to think…
When there are wars,
Men fight for our country.
They fight so we can be free.
That's you and me!
I'm glad we are free,
Not being controlled by a king
I always think about that thing… that same thing
That men never get to see their many friends,
And little babies
Their families just get letters
America is beautiful,
its schools and its public pools
Kids are good but they really should…
Respect the flag and the anthem
And have no tantrums!
I am glad I can lie down at night
Knowing I won't wake up to a nasty fight
For you see,
I love America,
my safe loving home
