Red white and blue
Hot dogs and hamburgers
Beer wine and margaritas
Laughter love and friends
Fireworks at night’s end

Most will celebrate
Though some lament
Gripe complain and criticize
Mumble of our arrogance
Pride, greed and ignorance

Raise a different banner
Down with capitalism
Unfair and exploitative
Our country is terrible
Worst of all in the world

Yet liberty all possess
To work and love and play
Say whatever they want
Because a hard battle was won
To offer all, precious freedom
