(German tune, Lyrics by John Erwin, publ. 1921)

From dawn of day to set of sun
July the Fourth is full of fun;
O happy summer holiday
When banners wave and children play.
The birthday of our own dear land,
Beneath whose starry flag we stand.

A birthday present every day,
We ought to give our country dear,
O happy summer holiday,
When banners wave and children play.
So now, dear land, I give to you
My heart’s love ever warm and true.
