I’ll be glad when the flag goes up
We’ll sing new songs and invent new slogans
There’ll be a party and we’ll burn the old pictures
I’ll finally have some fun

I’ll be glad when the flag goes up
New uniforms if they know my sizes
I’ll make new friends when I go to the meetings
It won’t be better but I’ll settle for different (when it’s)

Redland, red
And my house is burning
Redland, red
What took you so long?
Well it really won’t matter (when it’s)
Redland, Redland everyone.

I’ll be glad when the flag goes up
It will be clearer what is right and wrong
Hey, I don’t care about the leaders and the theories
But I know I’d just like a change

I’ll be glad when the flag goes up
There’ll be new names for the streets and the cities
Study the lives of the great new heroes
I won’t be happy but I’ll be relieved (when it’s)

Redland, red
And my house is burning
Redland, red
What took you so long?
Well it really won’t matter (when it’s)
Redland, Redland everyone.
