When I homeschooled my two young daughters, we started every school day with a prayer and then marching around the house with small American flags and singing the George M. Cohan tune, “You’re a Grand Old Flag.” They loved this start to their school day, particularly the rhythmic nature of the phrase “boast or brag.” LOL:-) I thought you might enjoy reading the lyrics.
“You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag”
-George M. Cohan, 1906
