Sung to the tune “London Bridge”
Beat a drum, march along, march along, march along Beat a drum march along, It’s America’s birthday!

Wave a flag, sing a song, sing a song, sing a song, Wave a flag sing a song, It’s America’s Birthday!


this is a cute little song that can be sung to the melody of “i’m a little teapot”
I taught this to my class of 4 year old children, we made individual USA flags and sang it to the entire school at morning assembly.

wave a little flag, red, white and blue
America belongs to me and to you.

God, please bless the USA


To the tune of: “3 blind mice”

Red, white, blue

MARCHING SONG

Tah, rah, rah boom dee-ay I’ll fly my flag today Way high up in the sky I’ll wave as I go by

I’ll dress in red and blue And maybe some white too I’ll march and cheer and shout Until I’m all worn out

So-o-o look for me today I’m leading the parade I’ll have my flag in hand To celebrate our land HIP HIP HOORAY!


Tune to “Oh My Darlin”

Beat a Drum,

March along give a cheer-hip hip horray

Wave a Flag,

Sing a Song

It’s July Fourth today

See the fireworks, in the sky give a cheer- hip hip hooray

Happy Birthday to America

How we love the USA!
