I got Ol' Glory hanging out in my garage
And one on the chrome post flying in my yard
I got a patch on my jacket - says 101st
And a sticker on my bumper says don't mess with her

THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
I HOLD 'EM DEAR TO MY HEART
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT
I STAND UP AND FIGHT
FOR EVERY STAR AND EVERY STRIPE
YEAH, I'M A PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE MEN AND THE WOMEN
WHO RISK THEIR LIVES FOR OUR CAUSE
LET ME TELL YA SON
WE'RE STILL NUMBER ONE
AND THESE COLORS DON'T RUN

I pledge allegiance to this nation and the eagle flyin' high
I'm the first to shoot off fireworks on the Fourth of July
And God bless the people who love this great land
Ah, when it comes to freedom, UNITED WE STAND

THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
I HOLD 'EM DEAR TO MY HEART
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT
I STAND UP AND FIGHT
FOR EVERY STAR AND EVERY STRIPE
YEAH, I'M A PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE MEN AND THE WOMEN
WHO RISK THEIR LIVES FOR OUR CAUSE
LET ME TELL YOU SON
WE'RE STILL NUMBER ONE
AND THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
--pause--

THESE COLORS DON'T RUN

THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
I'M A PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE MEN AND THE WOMEN
WHO RISK THEIR LIVES FOR OUR CAUSE
LET ME TELL YOU SON
WE'RE STILL NUMBER ONE
AND THESE COLORS DON'T RUN

WE NEVER WILL, WE NEVER HAVE
AND YOU BETTER BE GLAD
THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
