It stands so proud and true as it moves with such grace.
It flies for freedom and the pride that is within us all.
It stands for those who did fall to keep this land so free when they did get the call.
We ignore what it truely means for which it stands.
We are a nation indivisible for liberty and justice for the strong and the weak.
We must help others to find what they long or what they seek.
We must share our love of new found national pride.
We must show them what we are made of inside.
We must live in a land so much of plenty and yet so free.
Defend its honor to the rest of the world .
We stand proud and tall.
We stand for the flag we hold so proud and true.
It is a symbol of freedom or libery for one and all.
It is for those who here its call to arms when the time comes near.
It is a fight worht having to keep us safe and warm.
We must fight agaisnt us who mean to do us harm.
