"Paul Revere"

[Verse]
In April of 1775
This great nation started coming alive
Old King George didn't like it one bit
So he proceeded to throw him a royal fit
He told his generals better get them back in line
Make them pay my taxes now America is mine
Stop that Independence cops before it gets around
Or it'll going to be hard to hold them rebels down
Well the King was talking about the men like Paul Revere
And the minute men who held their dream of Independence dear
They kept their eyes on the British they watched them day and night
They knew very soon they'd get their chance to stand and fight
Yes they knew that the British would get moving any hour
So they arranged a signal in the Northern Church Tower
Paul was watching when the tower showed a light
And he started on his midnight ride
He jumped on his horse hoofs started a humming
He screamed out his warning redcoats're coming
Better get your guns and your fighting britches on
They're coming and they're eight hundred strong
Next morning at Concord and Lexington town
The spirit of freedom turned the redcoats around
When we praise the men who made this mighty nation we have here
Then let's remember Paul Revere yes let's remember Paul Revere
I guarantee you something and I want to tell you all
That we never would've been here if it hadn't been for Paul
Yes sir I surely doubt us ever being here
If it hadn't been for that man on that horse named Mr Revere
