The Fourth Of July (Love And Rockets Red Glare)


On this night of patriotic celebration
We find a special place to hide away
for a while
Just for the two of us

Under the boardwalk
We lay a blanket down and spread it out

Sitting on the blanket
The time has come
And so
One by one
Fireworks and rockets go off

As they go off
We exchange hugs and kisses
While still making time to see the beauty
and magic happening in the sky
On the Fourth of July

As the fireworks and celebration continue
On this Fourth of July
You and I can both agree
We wouldn't want to be anywhere else
Anywhere else in the world
On this Fourth of July
On the Fourth of July

For us
Tonight
It's definitely love and rockets red glare
Love and rockets red glare
All over
