  • Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    (Justice)
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    (Justice)

    Start your own currency
    Make your own stamp
    Protect your language
    (Justice)

    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you

    Make your own flag
    Make your own flag
    Make your own flag
    Make your own flag

    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)

    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you

    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you

    Damn colonists
    Ignore their patronizing
    Tear off their blindfolds
    Open their eyes

    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you

    With a flag and a trumpet
    Go to the top of your highest mountain

    And raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)
    Raise your flag (higher, higher)

    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
    Declare independence
    Don't let them do that to you
