Firecracker

Firecracker, look at you go Sparking, spitting, flying by, Putting on quite a show For every Fourth of July Bang! There goes the first Crack! Goes number two, Snap! The third one burst Pop! For the red, white and blue Let freedom ring out Independence for us all, One day a year to shout Hear all voices call When we can't say this And we can't do that, In a country amiss Where freedom's at Long gone is the way Of such prim and poise, Today, all of us can say Let's make some noise Bang! There goes the first Crack! Goes number two, Snap! The third one burst Pop! For the red, white and blue Sparking, spitting, flying by Putting on quite a show, For every Fourth of July Firecracker, look at you go!
