​Thank You

This song is by Ray Stevens and appears on the album We the People (2010).

Reporters on TV show protesters in the street
Someone burns a flag to show just how they feel
I just can't believe my eyes, they spit on the stars and stripes
How could anyone feel that way for real

And if no one's taken time to tell you lately
Here is a message that you should be hearing daily

Thank you all the troops in tan and green
Navy, Air Force and Marines
Thank you for doing what you do
For the red white and blue

Thank you every time you take up on
Is to keep us safe from harms
And to keep this country free
Thank you

War is not the answer, reads a big sign in the yard
Of some takers of this free life that we're living
Now we all have a choice, right to raise our voice
What about those brave hearts, are they given

And if no one's taken time to tell them lately
Here is a message that they should be hearing daily

Thank you, Green Berets, Navy Seals
And all you soldiers in the field
Thank you, Coast Guard and Reserve
You don't get what you deserve

Thank you, every time you take up on
Is to keep us safe from harms
Or to help somebody get free
Thank you
