Are you ready for the new sensation?
Well, here's the shot heard 'round the world
All you back room boys salute when her flag unfurls

Well, guess who's back in circulation?
Now, I don't know what you may have heard
But what I need right now's the original good time girl

She's a vision from coast to coast
Sea to shining sea
Hey, sister, you're the perfect host

Show me your bright lights in your city lights, all right
I'm talkin' 'bout the Yankee Rose
Bright lights in your city lights, all right
I'm talkin' 'bout it

When she walks, watch, the sparks will fly
Fire crackin' on the fourth of July
No sad songs tonight, something's in the air

Real state of independents
So pretty when her rockets glare
Still provin' any night that her flag is still there

She's a vision from coast to coast
Sea to shining sea
Hey, sister, you're the perfect host

Show me your bright lights in your city lights, all right
I'm talkin' 'bout the Yankee Rose
Bright lights in your city lights, all right
I'm in love with the Yankee Rose

Ah, she's beautiful, alright
Mmm, nothin' like her in the whole world
Yeah, she's right on time, I'm on the case
Pick up the phone, no time to waste
She got the beat and here's a little bit comin' your way

Bright lights, city lights
Bright lights, city lights
Bright lights, city lights
Bright lights, city lights
