Yes, I'll be down your street again quite soon
And don't ignore me when I wave at you
For although I'm looking rather sad
I'm all you've ever really had
And when you're desperate, you will hold me
Hold me to that

Took your hat off in Wisconsin
Took your head in Vietnam
Just dying to become a man
Well, I am your flag

Spend all of my time just looking
For the big hit
So long getting there
There's no time left to use it
So let's raise a smile of victory
Impressed in dental surgery
When you need cover, you can use me
Buried at sea

Freedom's just a new deodorant
The money's spent, and you've been had
You don't believe me? Ask your dad
I am your flag

So, as I fly so proudly, you will see
That you won't dare break up this family
See the happy children on parade
With wooden guns that mother made
And see me dancing in the breeze
That blows them away

I ran into Northern Ireland
I ran into Afghanistan
Dying to become a man?
I am your flag
