Every Country Deserves Respect

 Time passes by
 The flag ripples in the sky
 the flag stately stands
 the children see the flag, and
 feeling the breeze against their
 skin- the children sing.

 They sing of country
 They sing of countrymen
 They sing songs of honor
 They sing praises in freedom's
 day.

 Time passes by
 The flag ripples in the sky
 The flag stately stands
 Men and women see the flag,
 And feeling the breeze against
 Their skin - the men
 And women sing.

 They sing of country
 They sing of countrymen
 They sing praises, in freedom's
 Day.

 Every country has its flag
 Every country has its heroes
 Every country in the world
 Sends forth its own champions
 Of peace and honor.

 Every country's countrymen
 Loves equally the country to which
 Each were born.

 Every country has its weeds
 Every country has its flowers.
 Every country is filled with
 Its own breed of giver and takers
 Who plant the seeds that other
 Must reap.

 Time passes by
 The flag ripples in the sky
 The flag stately stands
 Countrymen see the flag,
 And feeling the breeze against
 Their skin, a patriotic song
 Each heart does sing,
 As life carries them along.
