Lyrics

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 Declare independence Don't let them do that to you Declare independence Don't let them do that to you [x4] Make your own flag! [x6] 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!) [x5] 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! Raise the flag!
