Of stars and stripes and glitter-balls bespeckling the sky,
A day of Independence where we watch things flying high.

Hostile battles breaking free from overlording reign,
While quiet heroes make a difference, like Johnny Tremain.

A country filled with rebels fighting hard to make a change,
No wonder we're a culture fierce to protect our home range.

Eclipsing the diversity that formed our melting pot,
Societies of those enjoying freedom that they fought.

Today we celebrate with grilling cheeseburgers and corn,
Going to the beach, red, white, and blue we oft adorn.

A drink with friends and family, remembering what counts,
A Happy Independence Day I happily announce!
