LONG MAY THE EAGLE FLY
(c)2003 Bonnie Wilson Daniels

The Eagle flies,
In the dark of night,
His wings spread wide,
For the long, hard flight,
Over stormy seas,
To a distant land,
Where he planted his feet,
And took a stand !

The leader was cruel,
A real evil man,
The people feared him,
Throughout the land,
He shot and killed them,
Just on a whim,
Their lives seemed hopeless,
Their future looked dim.

Chorus:
Long may the Eagle fly,
Our freedoms to ensure,
Ever searching high and low,
To keep our shores secure.
And for other lands and people
Who wish to be set free,
Let the mighty Eagle fly for them,
And bring them sweet, sweet liberty!

The Eagle’s wings,
Spread over the land,
The battles raged,
In the desert sand,
And when the fighting,
Had settled down,
The red, white and blue
Was in every town!

They said they could stand,
If they fought real hard,
And hide behind something,
Called Republican Guard,
But the Eagle swooped down,
And blew most away,
And some are still hiding,
‘Til this very day!

Bridge:
God bless the mighty Eagle,
Keep him brave and keep him strong,
God bless the mighty Eagle,
As he tries to right the wrongs!

Chorus:
So, long may the Eagle fly,
Our freedoms to ensure,
Ever searching high and low,
To keep our shores secure,
And for other lands and people,
Who wish to be set free,
Let the mighty Eagle fly for them,
And bring them sweet, sweet liberty!

The Eagle is brave,
Determined and strong,
Some feathers are missing,
But he still flies on,
He’s on a mission,
To set people free,
And give them new hope,
And security!

Chorus:
Long may the Eagle fly,
Our freedoms to ensure,
Ever searching high and low,
To keep our shores secure,
And for other lands and people,
Who wish to be set free,
Let the mighty Eagle fly for them,
And bring them sweet, sweet liberty!

Let the mighty Eagle fly for them,
And bring them sweet, sweet liberty !!
