Fourth of July. Fireworks, cookouts, baseball, holding hands with your best girl. That’s what it’s about now, but it wasn’t always what it was about.
In a seafaring town not a few years ago
It happened one hot summer day
A document fair to the townsfolk was read
That put all the bells into play
They rang out the news that the freedom they sought
Was theirs by God’s writ and His grace
And from that day forward the people held fast
To the freedoms those men put in place
The Fathers, the Founders, they sweated and swore
Until they had got the words down
And created the world’s finest country by far
And it happened in old Philly town
