Independence Day Poems and Songs


Our Flag

As red as a fire,
As blue as the sky,
As white as the snow--
See our flag fly!
Three pretty colors
Wave at the sky,
Red, white and blue
On the Fourth of July!
Red, white and blue
Those colors are,
And every state has its very own star.
Hold up the flag
Hold it up high,
And then say, "Hurrah,
For the Fourth of July!"


Song: I Love Red, White and Blue
(sung to tune of "When the Saints Go Marching In")

Our flag is red,
Our flag is white.
And in the corner it is blue,
Oh, our flag stands for our country,
How I love red, white, and blue!

Some stripes are red,
Some stripes are white,
And in the corner it is blue,
Oh, our flag stands for our country,
How I love red, white, and blue!


Salute the Flag

Four children take a walk today.
They see a pole with a flag on top.
The flag is red and white and blue--
And when they see the flag, they stop.
They say "I pledge" or promise.
Allegiance is loyalty.
Republic means our government.
One nation, under God, will be.
Indivisible, not divided,
And liberty means free.
Justice for all means fairness.
For all means you and me
