NARRATOR: What does it stand for, the red, white, and blue?

CUB 1:

It stands for our country,
And what it went through,
To win us our freedom,
When freedom was new.

NARRATOR: What do they stand for, the stripes, red and white?

CUB 2:

The states on the Seaboard
That braved England's might;
Thirteen in number,
United to fight.

NARRATOR 3: What do they stand for, The stars, one and all?

CUB 3:

The states in the Union,
The big states and small,
Ready to answer
America's call.

NARRATOR: What do they stand for, The colors we see?

CUB 4:

Red stands for courage,
And white, liberty,
And blue for the staunch
In this land of the free.

ALL:

Hail to our banner,
Still shining like new,
Symbol of faith
In the brave and the true;
Symbol of freedom,
The red, white, and blue.
