In seventeen seventy-six,
We gave the British a list.
They would not see, we want to be free …
It’s getting serious.
We just want to rule ourselves,
Put the monarchy on the shelf.
We can do better, so here is our letter …
Your taxes can go as well.
Today is the fourth of July,
Fireworks light up the sky.
We celebrate this special date,
But do we understand why?
Because Thomas Jefferson
And his brave friends as one,
Declared our Independence then,
They signed it with a feather pen,
And pledged their lives and honor, when? (hold out)
In seventeen seventy-six, in seventeen seventy-six,
In seventeen seventy-six!
