Uncle Sam Want's You!

It'll soon be the 4th of July
That's why the flags fly.
Look me straight in the eye
You can see that I don't lie.

We call it "Independance Day"
That's what my teachers say.
'Cause "Freedom" is the game we play.
But if you play, you gotta pay.

There are lots of ways that you can serve
With vigor and with verve.
Some ways take lots of nerve,
Others just a desire to serve.

Some folks go to the military
On the ground or in the air-y
As a sailor on the sea
Or as a Marine who does all three.

But jury duty is service too
And giving help where help is due
So, whatever service you choose to do
Just remember, Uncle Sam Wants You!
