Stars and Stripes
-JoAnn C. Leist
Smithfield, NC

Sung to: "Row, Row Your Boat"

Wave, wave, wave the flag,

As we march around.

Hold it high to show our pride,

It must not touch the ground.

Wave, wave, wave the flag,

Dear red, white, and blue.

Stars and stripes forever bright,

America to you!

Flag Day
-Sue Brown
Louisville, KY

Sung to: "Yankee Doodle"

Sit down, children, look at me,

I'll tell you a story.

You'll learn about our country's flag,

It's nickname is "Old Glory."

Stars and stripes are on our flag,

Red and white and blue.

To show the world that we are free,

And proud to live here too!

See our flag, it's waving high,

Waving high, waving high.

It's red and white and blue.

Oh, When the Flags
-Jean Warren

Sung to: "When the Saints Go Marching In"

Oh, when the flags come marching in,

Oh, when the flags come marching in.

How we love to see our three colors,

When the flags come marching in.

First comes the red, then white and blue,

First comes the red, then white and blue.

How we love to see our three colors,

When the flags come marching in.

Oh, hear the bells come marching in,

Oh, hear the bells come marching in.

We ring the bells for our great nation,

For the red and white and blue.

Oh, hear the drums come marching in,

Oh, hear the drums come marching in.

We beat the drums for our great nation,

For the red and white and blue.

Oh, hear the horns come marching in,

Oh, hear the horns come marching in.

We toot the horns for our great nation,

For the red and white and blue.
