Patriotic Songs

The Star spangled banner
A song that’s sung so many times
The words by now you know
But there are many other songs
So I’ve listed them below

America the beautiful
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesty
Above the fruited plain
America, America, God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

God bless America
God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home

My country tis of thee
My country tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing
Land where my fathers died
Land of the pilgrim’s pride
From every mountain side
Let freedom ring

This land is your land
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York island
From the Redwood Forest
To the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

This is my country
This is my country, land of my birth
This is my country, grandest on earth
I pledge thee my allegiance
America the bold
For this is my country
To have and to hold

Proud to be an American
And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up, next to you
And defend her still today
Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA

Some People

Some people are nice
Some people are mean
Some are dirty
Some are clean

Some people are short
Some people are tall
Some are big
Some are small

Some people are white
Some people are brown
Some always smile
Some always frown

Some live in the cold
Some live in the heat
Some live in a house
Some live on the street

Some people have money
Some people are poor
Some sleep in a bed
Some sleep on the floor

Some people will help
Some people will harm
Some lost a lost a leg
Some lost an arm

Some people are bald
Some people have hair
Some are generous
Some don’t share

Some have a child
Some have a brother
Some have a sister
Some have no mother

Some people are old
Some people are young
Some speak kindly
Some with a sharp tongue

Some only laugh
Some only cry
Some don’t care
Some always try
