Not The Queen’s English

A whole bunch of scores ago

Some British people got on a boat.

They came and taxed our tea, and so

The Constitution did get wrote.


The British guys thought a big red jacket

Would be the perfect camouflage.

Alas, their soldiers couldn’t hack it

And had not been trained to dodge.


And so we yankees won the war

And conquered all the Earth.

At the public school I learned this lore.

Hurray for America’s birth!
