Faded Glory


I heard a cock and bull story
about America's faded glory
It don't hold water with me
I still sing 'Oh, say can you see'

To those who hate our freedom
and are trying to decree a kingdom
I'll keep fighting you tooth and nail
until you've given up and turn tail

I know, beyond any doubt
certain leaders sold us out
But I can say with a straight face
America will always be in first place

We are free because of the brave
I won't be your subject nor slave
As long folks like me are around
Old Glory won't touch the ground

The taxpayers are skin and bones
from your amnesty and free phones
So if you want to spend and frolic
go dictate in a banana republic

Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
