What are the four great American symbols,
Number one of course is our beloved flag,
The red, white and blue may it wavy forever
Over freedom's nation.
With it's wings stretched out, the next
Is the bald eagle soaring flights heights,
Towards the never ending possibilities to
Grand lady liberty, stands at our gates,
Opening them wide, to welcome those
Oppressed, to a better life beyond.
So what is this the forth, think about it,
It's in every home, in every automobile,
Even the office supply room, is stocked
With this wondrous item.
I've even read where NASA keeps it on
All the space missions, just in case something
Goes wrong, God forbid.
Now can you guess, no OK, I'll give you
One more clue.
When elmores glue doesn't work, and you
Can't find that roll of scotch tape.
It's the next best thing for all around fixes,
That all American standard, Hello it's
A round roll of gray silver, yes mama,
I'd never be caught without it.
It's in the family first aid kit, because
Lets admit it Mom's of the good old USA,
Those darn bandages just don't stick,
When it comes to our kids.
Last minute projects falling apart,
Don't worry about it just apply
That old Duct Tape.
So no matter what I'm sticking with
What I know works, good old fashioned
And if anyone objects to this idea,
I can fix that problem also.
Sorry got to go, something just crashed
In the other room!
I just have to grab a roll and go.
