OLD GLORY IN 2001
Those “STARS AND STRIPES” gained new meaning
In the year two thousand and one
It flew prouder over our Country
Where a new war had begun.
On September eleventh
“They” tried to bring it down
Along with those “Two Towers”
That came crashing to the ground.
But, the American people caught it
And held it high for all to see
This is still, “THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”
And, “THE LAND OF THE FREE”.
Those people who do evil
Will shudder at the sight
As “OLD GLORY” catches them
In all its power and might.
We might not always do justice
Under its waving grace
But, it’s meaning to Freedom
Will always stand its place.
It’s always been a symbol
And hope, for people in this world
It sends a very special message
Each time, it is unfurled.
The “STARS AND STRIPES” will wave
Those colors, “RED, WHITE AND BLUE”
As long, as there are Freedom lovers
Or all life on Earth, is through.
