This Land Is Your Land Descant This land is your land, this land is mine. From California to the New York island. This land is your land, this land is mine. I know that. This land was made for you and me. • .
How I love my America From the mountains to the golden plain As I travel across this land From Hawaii to the coast of Maine Oh, how I love my America God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good - with brotherhood From sea to shining sea
Star Spangled Banner By Francis Scott Key Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming. And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Oh how I love a football game, I like to yell with the crowd. Watch as they knock that team on their back. Rushing the quaterback - it’s a sack! Pass it into the end zone; a kick through the goal post and we’ve won the game. Z 1 2 Z 3 4 downs to go at the football game.
Workin’ the numbers on my page. Can’t seem to make them all behave. Just something hard about it. Can’t get my arms around it. But help is here so it’s OK. We’ll figure it out! We’ll turn it around! Whenever the world is upside down. We’ll try it again! We’ll never give in! No matter how long it takes us. We’ll figure it out! Watchin’ the clouds up in the sky. Hopin’ the sunshine can peak by. Though we can’t change the weather, we’ll put our heads together. And make our own sunny day. We’ll figure it out! We’ll turn it around! Whenever the world is upside down. We’ll try it again! We’ll never give in! No matter how long it takes us. We’ll figure it out! We’ll turn it around! Whenever the world is upside down. We’ll try it again! We’ll never give in! No matter how long it takes us. We’ll figure it out!We’ll figure it out! We’ll figure it out! We’ll figure it out!
