    I really like this playlist a whole lot.I would prefer  David Byrne's Independence Day to Martina McBride's,it's a different song and the lyrics are more suited to the holiday. No complaints other than that,However  I found a few more songs after the deadline:John Mellencamp~Pink Houses

    Vacationer~Trip

    Alice Cooper~School's Out

    Avett Brothers~Sixteen in July

    Sly & the Family Stone~Hot Fun in the Summertime

    The Rolling Stones~I'm Free

    The Jamies~Summertime,Summertime

    The Decemberists~July,july

    Devo~Freedom of Choice

    M.I.A.~Born Free

    The Pogues~The Body of an American

    A.A. Bondy~American Hearts

    Independence Day Lyrics

    David Byrne

    Now and then I get horny
    At night you do
    At night you do
    Smile - from side to side
    At night you do
    At night you do

    She'll be comin' round the mountain
    Six white horses by her side
    No stops for gas, food or lodging
    She's wearing nothing but a smile
    And though we struggle for our freedom
    Our need for others still remains
    We know what will make us happy
    We know what will ease our pain

    We'll pretend we are married
    At night we do
    At night we do
    Slide your hand in mine
    At night we do
    At night we do

    My bed is flyin' out the window
    I'm pullin' up my covers to the rain
    And down below cats are howlin'
    It's a family affair

    They're selling vegetables on Broadway
    A man is runnin' for the train
    Strollin' down 42nd Street
    On our Independence Day
    Rub-A-Dub on 57th Street
    On our Independence Day!
    Arm in arm on 82nd Street
    It's our Independence Day

    Hey Mister, Hey Lady
    Hey sisters walkin' hand in hand
    We'll be lovers in the open
    We'll be lovers on Independence Day
    Hand in hand, hand in hand
    Hand in hand on Independence Day

    This compass points in two directions
    And North and South are both the same
    We'll look forward to the good times
    Come our Independence Day

    Hey Lady! You make me giggle
    We'll squiggle like honeymooners do
    I'm struck by lightnin', it's frightnin'
    So excitin', on Independence Day

    Uncle Vera, Auntie Ida
    Get so excited on Independence Day

    Been waiting such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Till Independence Day

    Waiting such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    And now it's here!
    Independence Day!

    Waiting such a long time
    Such a long time
    Such a long such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Till Independence Day

    Waiting such a long time
    Such a long time
    Such a long such a long time
    And now it's here
    Independence Day

    Waiting such a long time
    Such a long time
    Such a long such a long time
    Waiting such a long time
    Till Independence Day

    Waiting such a long time
    Such a long time
    Such a long such a long time
    Now it's here!

    One Time One Night Lyrics

    Los Lobos

    Songwriters: DAVID HIDALGO, LOUIS PEREZ

     

    A wise man was telling stories to me
    About the places he had been to
    And the things that he had seen

    A quiet voice is singing something to me
    An age old song about the home of the brave
    In this land here of the free
    One time one night in America

    A lady dressed in white with the man she loved
    Standing along the side of their pickup truck
    A shot rang out in the night
    Just when everything seemed right
    Another headline written down in America

    The guy that lived next door in #305
    Took the kids to the park and disappeared
    About half past nine
    Who will ever know
    How much she loved them so
    That dark night alone in America

    A quiet voice is singing something to me
    An age old song about the home of the brave
    In this land here of the free
    One time one night in America

    Four small boys playing ball in a parking lot
    A preacher, a teacher, and the other became a cop
    A car skidded into the rain
    Making the last little one a saint
    One more light goes out in America

    A young girl tosses a coin in the wishing well
    She hopes for a heaven while for her
    There's just this hell
    She gave away her life
    To become somebody's wife
    Another wish unanswered in America

    People having so much faith
    Die too soon while all the rest come late
    We write a song that no one sings
    On a cold black stone
    Where a lasting peace will finally bring

    The sunlight plays upon my windowpane
    I wake up to a world that's still the same
    My father said to be strong
    And that a good man could never do wrong
    In a dream I had last night in America

    A wise man was telling storie to me
    About the places he had been to
    And the things that he had seen

    A quiet voice is singing something to me
    An age old song about the home of the brave
    In this land here of the free
    One time one night in America

    RANDY NEWMAN LYRICS

    "Sail Away" by Randy Newman

    In America you'll get food to eat
    Won't have to run through the jungle
    And scuff up your feet
    You'll just sing about Jesus and drink wine all day
    It's great to be an American

    Ain't no lions or tigers
    Ain't no mamba snake
    Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake
    Ev'rybody is as happy as a man can be
    Climb aboard, little wog
    Sail away with me

    Sail away
    Sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
    Sail away
    Sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

    In America every man is free
    To take care of his home and his family
    You'll be as happy as a monkey in a monkey tree
    You're all gonna be an American

    Sail away
    Sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
    Sail away
    Sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
