    You own this


Way back when in 76, when disco ruled the night
The Declaration of Independence gave unalienable rights
Yeah unalienable rights

That all men may have a mustache
Women may have one too
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of facial hair
...and mirror balls and dancing too
Yeah and mirror balls and dancing too

Old King George was angry
He hated that new disco sound
So he sent over some redcoats
To tear that dance hall down
Yeah, tear that dance hall down

John Hancock did the hustle
Sam Adams the electric slide
Thomas Jefferson at the Bus Stop
...and King he nearly died
Yeah the king he nearly died

So now Fireworks fill the sky up
Everyone has a barbecue
The children get the day off from school
The roof’s on fire too
...but we don’t need no water dude
