There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

It seems to me we need employ

The safest way to display joy

On our great nation’s holiday

From all of us Happy Birthday !

There was a greenish statue that on an islet stood

When I was but a child too nearby my neighborhood

We did pay small attention, we called her Liberty

She was this grand figure that you couldn’t help but see.

With every place I’ve lived she was always in my sight

You could not escape her glance not morning, noon or night

She’s still there in the harbor exposed for all to see

A symbol of our freedom and still called Liberty !

 

( WHEN I CLOSED MY BLINDS SHE WAS THE FINAL THING I’D SEE )

Who can know what a man of honor will do

To safekeep his home and save his freedom too

With many a battle in the past that’s fought

As the price of our nation was dearly bought.

For more than two hundred years we did survive

Our values and principles still quite alive

But beware of those who now put us to test

With evil intent to destroy all our best.

Let’s return to the way that we used to be

The home of the brave and the land of the free !

The lady in the harbor that we call Liberty

Stands waving her approval for all the world to see

She’s been there far too long on that island in the bay

Think of all that she has seen and what she has to say.

May the Lord in heaven look down kindly from above

Protecting our great nation and values that we love !

I hear their voices calling me

Out of a past that used to be

So long ago and faraway

That unspeakable yesterday.

I was quite young how could I know

I lost my childhood quickly though

The words I heard, I can’t forget

At times I’m sure they echo yet

And temper all my actions still

I am convinced they always will !
