I remember George M. Cohan and the songs he wrote.
Have you ever sang It's a grand old flag
or Over There?1917 Geo.M, Cohan
Well, here are the words so you can sing along.
Johnnie get your gun, get your gun,get your gun.
Take it on the run, on the run, on the run.
hear them calling you and me
every son of Liberty.
Hurry right away, no delay go today.
Over there, Over there,
Send the word, send the word over there.
That the YANK"S are coming, the yanks are coming,
There's drum drum druming everywhere
So Prepare, say a prayer, say a prayer,send the word,
send the word to beware.
We'll be over, we're coming over,
and we won't come back till it's over, OVER THERE.
I love this song, it makes me so proud of our Armed forces.
I want to join myself.
Waiting for James Cagney in Yankee Doodle to come on TV
It's nice to know the words,
this is a favorite too.
you're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
and foreever in PEACE may you wave.
You're the emblem of the land that I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Every heart beats true 'neath the red,white and blue
where there is never a boast or a brag,
keep your eye on the grand ole flag.
I jump up and down when they play this song.
I can't help it,it's in my blood.
In Flander's field's
We cherish too, the Poppy red.
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
that blood of Hero's never dies.
