VERSE 01: A lover sighed to his pretty bride, "I was dreaming of you last night,/Our home I could see, with out babe at your knee,/In the fire-flame's dancin light;/When a distant drum seemed to forbid me come, for my county dear to fight,/Then sweet Liberty appeared to me, and sang with all her might.CHORUS: We'll put another star in the Star Spangled Banner;/The Star of Peace so fair;/Then with arms and soldiers true, And with coast defenses too,/We'll keep that star right there,/From Frisco 'cross to Maine and then right back again,/To sing we'll never cease./We'll put another star in the Star Spangled Banner, The Golden Star of Peace.VERSE 02: The pretty bride with a sigh replied, "We've been happy both day and night,/But my heart is true to the red, white, and blue,/There's no land like the U.S.A./And this I know if the drums said "go," ev'ry hour I'd pray for you,/But no war could last, t'would soon be past,/If this your dream comes true.
