Oh, Independence Day! Blessed Declaration!
The law above a king, blessed separation!
Unalienable rights, endowed by the Lord God.
Truths that we will hold dear. The governed have the nod.
And for seven long years, a war of attrition.
Bunker Hill and Breed’s Hill, Concord and Lexington.
Fort Ticonderoga, Trenton and King’s Mountain,
Bloody victories all! Surrender at Yorktown!
