The stars and stripes

The stars and stripes
Are red, white and blue
And Betsy Ross
Sure knew what to do

George Washington wanted
A flag to display
When Betsy was chosen
She answered okay

With seven red stripes
And six that are white
Our first colonies
A choice that was right

White stars for each state
The background was blue
When new states were added
Their star was there too

I’ve seen many flags
Though none can compare
To our red, white and blue
Please handle with care
