New Off-Broadway musical (2016)
Cagney the Musical - Grand Old Flag Lyrics

(Music & Lyrics by George M. Cohan)

Quartet:
Red and white, white and blue
Red and white and blue, oooo
There's a feeling comes a-stealing
And it sets my heart a-reeling
When I'm listening to the music of a military band.
Any tune like yankee doodle
Simply sets me off my noodle
It's that patriotic something that no one can understand.
Hurrah!  Hurrah!  We'll join the jubilee!
And that's going some – for a yankee by gum.
Red, white and blue, I am for you. 
Honest you're a grand old flag.

Cagney:
You're a grand old flag
You're a high-flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love
The home of the free and the brave.  
Every heart beats true
Under red, white and blue
Where there's never a boast or brag. 
But should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag!

Jack Warner (spoken): Stop! Stop!    

Cagney (spoken): Mr. Warner, we’re in the middle of rehearsal.

Warner (spoken): This just arrived at the studio for you.  

Cagney (spoken): What is it?

Jack Warner (spoken): You tell me. 
It's addressed from the house committee on un-american activities in washington.
I don't think it's a valentines card.  

Cagney (spoken):
They've summoned me to testify. They're accusing me of being a communist.  

Jack warner (spoken):
See! I told you all your pinko sympathies would lead to trouble!  

Quartet:
A grand old flag
A high-flying flag
The emblem of
The land I love
Home of the free and the brave

Cagney:
You're a grand old flag...
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
You're the land I love
The home of the free and the brave.  

Cagney with Backups:
Every heart beats true
Under red, white and blue
Where there's never a boast or brag. 
But should auld acquaintance be forgot

All: Keep your eye on the grand old flag!
