A scalding 4th
Sulfur over-reigns the amber waves of grain
This is America
She's just a kid
But growing up strong thanks to all that her mommies and daddies did
So blow out your candles darling
And we'll all sing
And aim our voices east towards the king
And we will celebrate our independence
A scalding 4th
And I haven't seen her since she moved so far away
But this is America
Where lovers are free
To turn 180 given the opportunity
So show up for maintenance darling
And douse my sparkler too
And cover my naked bottles of blue
I just can't celebrate this independence
Because it rains in July
And this smoke kills these eyes
And fireworks cause accidents
Which remind me of mine
