RED WHITE AND BLUE
The flag flies high all red white and blue!
Standing tall with our hands over our hearts;
America the great! - O how we love you!
And we love our apple pie and candy tarts.
Freedom on display here and not over there,
Celebration everywhere with marching bands:
Balloons of red white and blue fills the air,
Children playing and old folk holding hands.
Smoke from firecrackers fills the winds that pass,
And the smell of grilled burgers and hotdogs;
A picnic on blankets covers the grass –
Kids splashing in ponds and taunting bullfrogs.
Remembering the fallen that has paid this price:
I solute you this special day – not once, but twice!
