4th of July Songs

America
My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountain side
Let freedom ring.

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake,
Let all that breathe partake,
Let rocks their silence break --
The sound prolong.

Our fathers' God, to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing,
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King.
 --Samuel Francis Smith

 

Celebration Song
(to the tune of "Oh, My Darling, Clementine")

Wave the flag,
Wave the flag,
Wave the flag, oh, wave it high.
Wave the flag and celebrate
Our nation's Independence Day.

Beat the drum,
Beat the drum,
Beat the drum, bong, bong, bong, bong.
Beat the drum and celebrate
Our nation's Independence Day.

March in time,
March in time,
March in time, oh, watch your step.
March in time and celebrate
Our nation's Independence Day.

Sing a song,
Sing a song,
Sing a song both loud and strong.
Sing a song and celebrate
Our nation's Independence Day.

Watch the fireworks,
Watch the fireworks,
Watch the fireworks light the sky.
Watch the fireworks and celebrate
Our nation's Independence Day.


God Bless America
God Bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
 --Irving Berlin

Happy Birthday, My Country
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, my country.
Happy birthday to you.

I'm thankful for you.
I'm thankful for you.
You are a great country.
I'm thankful for you.

I'll obey your laws.
I'll obey your laws.
I'll be a good citizen
And obey your laws.

I'll defend your shores.
I'll defend your shores.
From outward attacks,
I'll defend your shores.



The Star-Spangled Banner
O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming!
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
--Francis Scott Key



On Independence Day
(to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb")

Fireworks go snap, snap, snap!
Crack, crack, crack! Zap, zap, zap!
Fireworks make me clap, clap, clap
On Independence Day!


 I'm a Little Firework
(to the tune of "I'm A Little Teapot") 

I'm a little firework
Up in the sky.
I dance and I shimmer
Way up, up high.

Sometimes I'm red.
Sometimes I'm blue.
But I always sparkle
Just for you.

I'm a little firework
Up in the sky.
I dance and I shimmer
Way up, up high
