Its Time to Stay Home

It is Time to stay Home

Oh, say can you see from the dawn’s early light
That I am all ragged and torn.
From General Grant to General Lee,
Can you not see
That I am all ragged and torn.
From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli,
Can you not see
That I am all ragged and torn.
From Pearl Harbor to Soul to Hoe Chi Min to Granada
Can you not see
That I am all ragged and torn.
From Kuwait to Iraq and back again
Can you not see
That I am all ragged and torn.
From Afghanistan, Pakistan, and probably Iran,
Can you not see
That I am all ragged and torn.
I am leaving out much but the point of this is-
It is time to stay home.
I am tired of losing my young men and women
It is time to stay home
To heal and mend, for
I am ragged and torn.
It is time to protect our borders
From sea to shining sea
It is time to stay home
It is time to heal and mend for
I am ragged and torn
It Is Time To Stay Home!
