LyricsEdit

Dancin' HomerEdit

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Oh, say can you, I'm askin', can you seeeeee
by the dawn's...
...And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting - shoot 'em off! poppin' way up in the air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
...and the home of the brave?

Wild Barts Can't Be BrokenEdit

O'er the land of the free,
And the home... home of the bra-ve.
Oh, America's the home of the bra-ave,
American the brave, the brave!
Homer of the bra-ave!
