|First line of text: I've spelled a name called mother|
VERSE 01: I’ve spelled a name called mother/’Twas dearest to my heart/But now I’ll spell another,/For she and I must part./I’d love to live and love her/Beneath her smiling skies/They mean much more than dad or brother,/And spell a Yankee’s paradise.
CHORUS: “A” means you’re “anybody’s country,”/”M” means you’re “meant for me”/”E” meand you’re “ev’rybody’s sweetheart,”/And “R” for the “right of liberty.”/”I” stands for “independence first and all,”/”C” for your “colors so grand”/”A-M-E-R-I-C-A”,/America,/Means, “I love you, my Yankee Land.”
VERSE 02: Our hist’ry tells the story/How heroes fought and fell/Our children love “Old Glory”/And learn that name to spell./We’re proud of all our splendor,/And ev’ry heart today/Should rise and worship to defend her/And learn to spell her name this way.
