VERSE 1


WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FLAG
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
RED WHITE AND BLUE
THAT’S EASY
50 STARS, ONE FOR EVERY STATE
AND 13 STRIPES, THAT’S GREAT
BUT I HOPE YOU SEE MORE


(GO TO CHORUS)


VERSE 2


WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FLAG
DO YOU THINK HOLIDAY?
FOURTH OF JULY,
AND PARADES?
A WEEKEND WITH FAM’LY
A DAY AT THE LAKE?
BURGERS AND DOGS
THOSE TIMES ARE SO GREAT
I HOPE YOU SEE MORE


(GO TO CHORUS)

CHORUS:


WHEN I LOOK AT THE FLAG,
I SEE THE STARS UP IN THE SKY
REMINDS ME I CAN’T COUNT
ALL OF THOSE WHO’VE DIED FOR ME
THE RED STRIPES
I SEE THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD
THAT BOUGHT MY FREEDOM
IN THIS LAND I LOVE
AND THE WHITE STRIPES ARE FOR OUR
LIBERTY
THAT WE ENJOY IN THIS LAND OF THE FREE
WHAT DO YOU SEE?


(AFTER SINGING THE CHORUS TWICE, GO TO TAG)


(AFTER SINGING THE CHORUS A THIRD
TIME, GO TO ENDING)


TAG:


O’ BEAUTIFUL
FOR SPACIOUS SKIES
FOR AMBER WAVES OF GRAIN
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
WHAT DO YOU SEE?


(GO TO CHORUS)


ENDING:


WHAT DO YOU SEE?
I HOPE YOU SEE MORE
MUCH MORE
THAN JUST
RED WHITE AND BLUE.
