Mr. President ~ original album circa 1962

This Is a Great Country ~ Perry Como and the Entire Company
This is a great country, a great country
so let's shout it clear and loud!
Take a look in your history book
and you'll see why we should be proud!
 
Hats off to America, the home of the free and the brave
If this is flag waving, flag waving
do you know of a better flag to wave?
