​Bicentennial

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album T Shirt (1976).

Gonna have an anniversary
Gonna be a bicentennial
Hey, Americas having a birthday
Be two-hundred years old
Isn't that wonderful?
You know it certainly is

Goodness, what a wonderful country
Wow, what a nifty history
Gee, it's a powerful nation
Been two-hundred years old
Isn't that wonderful?
You know it certainly is

I relived my countrys history
In a class called social studies
I learned to pledge allegiance
To sing my national anthem
"My country, Tis of Thee"

You know we have our heroes
I mean Washington and Lincoln
Including Audie Murphy
Including old Jack Ruby
Wasn't Jack wonderful?
Oh, you know he certainly was

Lets hear it for Ohio
And the rippling red-wood forests
The Sawmill River Parkway
Oklahoma's strange panhandle
Aren't they all wonderful?

Gonna have an anniversary
Gonna be a bicentennial
Hey, Americas having a birthday
Be two-hundred years old
Isn't that wonderful?
You know it certainly is
