‘God Bless America’: Boston Police Partners Make Sweet Patrol-Car-Karaoke Music

As America celebrated the Fourth of July yesterday, many law-enforcement officers were deployed to keep cities and towns safe for fireworks, parades and BBQs.

In Boston, the cradle of the American Revolution, two longtime patrol partners decided to take a page from the book of British-born latenight TV host James Corden, who does “Carpool Karaoke” singing duets with major stars for his “Late, Late Show” on CBS.

Officers Stephen McNulty and Kim Tavares — both musicians in their free time — filmed themselves singing “God Bless America” as they tooled around Beantown.

Have a listen:

Here are the full lyrics to “God Bless America,” penned by legendary songwriter Irving Berlin:

God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America, my home sweet home.
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America, my home sweet home.
From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America, my home sweet home,
God bless America, my home sweet home.

We hope you had a beautiful holiday — and God Bless Us All!
