My country 'tis of thee
Tis of this sweet land I sing
Champion of Liberty
Showed the world we need no king

To hold a fragile freedom
We must cut back tirelessly
The branches, roots of government
Like a potted bonsai tree

My country
My homeland
Fine shoreline
Sweet heartland
For you, I stand unwaveringly
Rise forever, liberty

Sweeping, meddling government
Eats away what freedoms gain
Wealth and peace and harmony
Turn to struggle, war and pain

Will you join me, patriot?
We must prune the bonsai tree
Cast each bough that binds us now
Until we're truly free

Join me!

My country
My homeland
Fine shoreline
Sweet heartland
For you, I stand unwaveringly
Rise forever, liberty
