THE PRIDE OF THE U.S.A.

 

I am the Star- Spangled Banner

                I am beautiful and proud

People salute when I pass by

                As I wave above the crowd

 

I symbolize Patriotism

                Of your great U.S.A.

And reign above your Capitol

                Where I’m displayed every day

 

I guard government functions

                Grace courts, schools, and halls

I fly high in parks and playgrounds

   And wave above your malls

 

I waved above your battles

                ‘Til brave soldiers won the wars

And they brought me home in Glory

                To the U.S.A.’s great shores

 

The history of America

                Is all wrapped up in me

I stand for many freedoms

                I stand for Unity

 

I am regal in my colors

                For all the world to see

And everywhere that I’m displayed

                I wave majestically

 

So stand tall when I’m in view

                And hold your head up high

For I’m a banner to respect

                Forever may I fly
