Uncle Sam

I’m proud to be a Yankee
they call us Uncle Sam,
We’re famous for our cola
and we invented spam.
We kicked out all the British
they taxed and kept us poor,
But then we started fighting
it was called the civil war

I’m proud to be a Yankee
now a super state,
You come here for your holidays
to enjoy the dollar rate,
We’ll  greet you at the airport
with  great big  Donald Duck
And maybe you’ll see Mickey
if you’re really having luck.

I’m proud to be a Yankee
I drive a big flash car
It guzzles loads of gas
and a gallon won’t go far
Get a smaller car
I often hear them preach
But now it does not matter
B.P’s opened on the beach!

    Too bad there's no one trying to separate the oil from the sea water and then sell it. BP has created horrors on our local beaches. But like you, I'm still proud to call Sam my "Uncle." Love, Carolyn
