This is my country! Land of my birth!
This my country! Grandest on earth!
I pledge thee my allegiance, America the bold,
For this my country to have and to hold.
My Mama was big on Patriotism and Patriotic songs, having taught history in the public schools for over 40 years. She had her students sing songs, say the Pledge of Allegiance and she even wanted students to understand who the leaders of the country were and how things worked.
