I pledge Allegiance to this 'day,'
Just don't make the Oath to sing,
The 'Flag,' the word to properly say,
So your spirit can take Wing.
Happy Fourth Day to You
By Arley Steinhour 070412
I wasn't going to do it, I thought I had control,
But, as the day wears on, I need to dig a hole:
Why is it 'Independence Day,' need be called the Fourth,
When Birthdays, and Anniversaries, have fixed days of birth?
I don't know why I wonder, but to me is a big thing,
You wouldn't enjoy the party, if everybody did sing:
Happy Fourth Day, to you, Happy Fourth Day, to you,
Happy Fourth Day, Happy Fourth Day, Happy Fourth Day,
TO YOU. (think Anniversary in the place of BD, and you'll see)
This IS, our Independence Day, There's only one that's celebrated,
The day it's on, don't matter, marks when 'Freedom's Day was created;'
As near as my heart tells me, Satan wants this Nation to fail,
Doing everything he can, to destroy, before going to jail.
I ask you, please, to Ponder, who gave us our Freedom sway,
Patriotic blood, was shed, for God, to give us Freedom's Day.
It isn't very hard, you know, to say 'Independence Day,'
Unless you have to spell it, in fancy, inscriptive, way.
I ask you please to ponder, and humor me, today,
Put the 'Fourth' into the 'Hole,' call it 'Independence Day.'
