THESE STARS & STRIPES (w/ Pledge of Allegiance)

Written By: Susan Waitt

THESE STARS & STRIPES
(w/Pledge of Allegiance –put to music)

[THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
– - music by Susan Waitt]

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God
Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America

RED, WHITE & BLUE — BLUE, RED & WHITE
RED, WHITE & BLUE — THESE STARS & STRIPES

It seems that everywhere I look — three colors I do see
Before I never had to think — just what they mean to me
What can it be — about our flag — [that gives it rise to fly]
High atop our buildings — [waving to you in the sky?]

[CHORUS:]
THESE STARS AND STRIPES
FLY HIGH FOR ALL TO SEE
THESE STARS AND STRIPES
THEY BELONG TO YOU AND ME
THESE STARS AND STRIPES
SHOW A PEOPLE WHO ARE FREE
WE LIFT OUR BANNER SOARING HIGH
SURELY I CAN SEE THE BEST, IN THESE STARS AND STRIPES

People try to sum it up
— in a little word called freedom
Our founding fathers prayed
— they trusted
that GOD would guide and lead them
And NOW we’ve wandered so far
— MY GOD from those great days
When in public schools each morning
— children sang His praise

[CHORUS:
THESE STARS AND STRIPES (etc.)]

It’s time for us to understand
— what it means to be called free
Redeem these stars and stripes “My God”,
for all the world to see
And when we see these Stars and Stripes
— soaring boldly, flying true
Remember, This is America!
— we have the freedom to choose

[CHORUS:
THESE STARS AND STRIPES (etc.)]

But in the name of “Freedom”, we turn away from truth
We turn away — even ignore
— the things that we should do
AMERICA – UNITED! It’s a choice - we choose today
And as we stand UNITED – ONE HEART, ONE FLAG
— WE SAY:

[CHORUS:] THESE STARS AND STRIPES . . . (etc.)
vamp out on “These Stars and Stripes”
