(sung as to the Star Spangled Banner)

Ooh, say can you see?
The Revolution in me?
What so proudly we hail
against oppression, death and hate.
Whose proud ideals and broad aims
give Life and Liberty.
O’er Happiness we save the family’s fate...
Not for profits we care,
nor for violence or despair,
Give proof through any blight
than all Rights are still here.
Ooh, say does that Revolution
still rave
Through the Land of the Free
and the Home of the Brave.

(This new contains the essence of America! All need reminding!)

Then the original Star Spangled Banner if desired...all verses and just not the first.

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that starspangled
banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the starspangled
banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the starspangled
banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the starspangled
banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
