  • Are you going to the party?
    Are you going to the Boston Tea Party?

    Redcoats in the village
    There's fighting in the streets
    The Indians and the mountain men, well
    They are talking when they meet
    The king has said he's gonna put a tax on tea
    And that's the reason you all Americans drink coffee

    Chorus

    Fire in the mountains, flames upon the heath
    And the president spits out the news
    He's biting on wooden teeth
    The children of the colonies
    Got a different tale to tell
    I'm going down to the city
    Tell my folks I'm doing well

    Chorus

    Bringing back the buffalo to the long prairie
    Bringing back the fishes swimming in the sea
    The children of the colonies
    Got a different tale to tell
    I'm going down to the city
    Tell my folks I'm doing well
