The Shot Heard 'Round The World: Schoolhouse Rock- American Revolution. The start of the American Revolution! Paul Revere, the shot at Lexington Mass in April 19, 1775, Concord, Bunker Hill, 'don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!', Yorktown victory!
Take your blanket, and take your son.
Report to General Washington.
We've got our rights and now it's time to prove.
Well, they showed such determination
That they won the admiration
Of countries across the sea like France and Spain,
Who loaned the colonies ships and guns
And put the British on the run
And the Continental Army on its feet again.
And though they lost some battles too,
The Americans swore they'd see it through,
Their raiding parties kept up, hit and run.
At Yorktown the British could not retreat,
Bottled up by Washington and the French Fleet,
Cornwallis surrendered and finally we had won!
From the shot heard 'round the world
To the end of the Revolution
The continental rabble took the day
And the father of our country
Beat the British there at Yorktown
And brought freedom to you and me and the U.S.A.!
God Bless America, Let Freedom Ring!
