Lyrics
Birth of a Nation
The colonists had some problems that they could not seem to solve.
That they would serve King George no more, became their firm resolve.
Their leaders met and settled on what seemed the best solution:
They'd fire a shot heard 'round the world and start a revolution.

There was John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin,
Paul Revere, and Francis Marion,
Molly Pitcher, Betsy Ross, 
And George Washington.

The colonists wanted independence from the English king.
Their leaders drafted quite a writ designed to cut the strings.
The fourth day of the seventh month, they signed the proclamation.
That's why the fourth of each July we have a celebration.

There was John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin,
Paul Revere, and Francis Marion,
Molly Pitcher, Betsy Ross, 
And George Washington.

The colonists tired of paying tax to drink the British tea.
And so they vowed to drink no more until George dropped the fee.
The British were not fazed a bit; in fact, they laughed so hearty,
So patriots stole aboard the ship and had their own tea party.

There was John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin,
Paul Revere, and Francis Marion,
Molly Pitcher, Betsy Ross, 
And George Washington.

The colonists fought for eight long years their liberty to gain,
And life in these Americas would never be the same.
They fought until they won the right to make a brand new nation,
And these United States became an overnight sensation!

There was John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin,
Paul Revere, and Francis Marion,
Molly Pitcher, Betsy Ross, 
And George (and Martha!). . . 
George (and Martha) . . . Washington.
