Once Upon a Time


Once Upon a Time

When I thought the world was all mine

So many opportunities in front of me

What would I grow up to be

A doctor, a lawyer, a farmer, a fast-food worker

Off to college I went to find my order

Enjoyed the time I spent at school

Often times getting drunker than a fool

I knew after a while that this was not for me

So I knew then what I would become

For my lifes outcome

The course that I chose as I grew older

Was for me to become a soldier


4th of July


Upon an ideal a nation was formed

A belief in freedom that would be heard round the world

A declaration was made to say we were a free nation

Declaring our independence from masters across the sea

An idea that all men are created equal

Yes we had our times of injustice along the way

Wrongs were made right as time went by

Along the way other nations have risen and fallen

Countries have changed and many have broken apart

We have stayed and grown

A light in the world to so many we have become

An idea created so long ago

A nation was born

On the 4th day of July we celebrate

With flags flying all around

Fireworks blazing across the skies

From sea to shining sea

A remembrance of what America can be
