A bee is buzzing around the room,
Buzz buzz, buzz buzz.
A bee is buzzing around the room,

And let the sun shine through!

Before we go to the beach.

Look at fireworks popping.
Now they stop. Now they stop.

It’s red and white and blue!

Is the date, is the date,
Of our nation’s birthday, of our nation’s birthday.

So, all together we can say,
Happy Independence Day!

The 4th day of July!
