HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

YOUR FLAG AND MY FLAG,
AND HOW IT FLIES TODAY
IN YOUR LAND AND MY LAND
AND HALF A WORLD AWAY!

ROSE-RED AND BLOOD-RED
THE STRIPES FOREVER GLEAM;
SNOW-WHITE AND SOUL-WHITE --
THE GOOD FOREFATHERS' DREAM;

SKY-BLUE AND TRUE-BLUE,
WITH STARS TO GLEAM ARIGHT --
THE GLORIFIED GUIDON OF THE DAY,
A SHELTER THROUGH THE NIGHT.
