All Hail Flag Day

Flag DayTune: Oh Susanna

Well it’s time again for Flag Day
And we’ll wave our flags with pride
It’s a red flag and a blue flag
Not as tall as it is wide

All hail flag day! It’s just the day for me
I will hang my spangled banner on a flagpole or a tree

Well I like it when the stripes are sewn
And not just printed on
And the bright stars on the field of blue
Go nicely with my lawn

All hail flag day! It’s just the day for me
I will hang my spangled banner on a flagpole or a tree

Now I know the symbolism, and all that it stands for
But it’s mostly jingoistic stuff, preoccupied with war
So I’ll sing a song that’s PC for the flag that I love best
Which is not to say I think that it is better than the rest

All hail flag day! It’s just the day for me
I will hang my spangled banner on a flagpole or a tree
