The U.S.A. is here to stay
Because the flag waves every day.
I love this land; I hold my hand
Over my heart to say
My prayer for everyone who took the toll,
And gave their soul to the red, white, and blue.
Yes, it’s true! The men who died,
Died with pride, and helped us out by saving this land.
That’s why the flag shall gladly stand!
