[Verse 1]

You have rested, Liberty Bell,
For a hundred years and more,
End your slumbers, Liberty Bell,
Ring as you did before,
It’s time to wake ‘em up,
It’s time to shake ‘em up,
It’s a cause worth ringing for:


Liberty Bell, It’s time to ring again,
Liberty Bell, It’s time to swing again,
We’re in the same sort of fix
We were in Seventy six
And we are ready to mix and rally ‘round you
Like we did before,
Oh! Liberty Bell, Your voice is needed now,
Liberty Bell, We’ll hear your call one and all,
Though you’re old and there’s a crack in you
Don’t forget Old Glory’s backin’ you
Oh! Liberty Bell, it’s time to ring again.

[Verse 2]

Once you rang out, Liberty Bell,
As we watched Old Glory wave,
You have made us, Liberty Bell,
Land of the free and brave
It’s time to sing again, It’s time to ring again
For the cause you’ve got to save:
