Reporters on TV
Show protesters in the street
Someone burns a flag
To show just how they feel
Well I just can't believe my eyes
As they spit on the stars and stripes
How can anyone feel that way, for real
So if no one's taken time to tell you lately
Here's a message that you should be hearing daily

Thank you
Army 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 a bomb
It's to keep us safe from harm
And to keep this country free
Thank you

"War is not the answer", reads a big sign in a yard
Of some takers of this free life that we're living
Now we all have a choice, like to raise our voice
But what about those brave hearts out there giving
So if no one's taken the time to tell you lately
Here's a message that you should be hearing daily

Thank you
Green berets and navy seals
And all you soldiers in the field
Thank you
Full time and reserve
You don't get what you deserve
Thank you
Every time you take the bomb
Just to keep us safe from harm
And to help somebody free
Thank you
