Why can’t we just get along?
Can’t our friendship still be strong
even when we disagree?
Why ya gotta wail on me?

When I was small, I pledged the flag.
I said the words real loud.
I stood up straight and tall because
it made me feel so proud.

Today we celebrate our troops,
whose valor must be praised.
Our nation is the legacy
of heroes, born and raised.

Americans are different
as Americans can be.
We hail from north, south, east and west…
from sea to shining sea.
