Lyrics:

Sam Adams led the Sons of Liberty
a Patriot group to stand up to the King
(cuz Britain) imposed many taxes on the colonies
Like glass, oil, tea, so on December 16th, 1773

The Boston Tea Party
Three ships loaded with English tea were docked in the Boston port
The Boston Tea Party
The Townshend Act still had a tax on tea the Patriots did not support
The Boston Tea Party
Hundreds of Patriots dressed as Indians marched to the wharf and climbed aboard
The Boston Tea Party
And they threw three hundred forty chests of tea into the Boston harbor

The damage caused Britain a few million $$
Because of taxation without representation
That means, have a say in taxes from a local representative
And not from a King on the other side of the Atlantic

The Boston Tea Party
92,000 pounds of tea were dumped into Griffin’s Wharf
The Boston Tea Party
a political protest on a tax the Patriots did not support
The Boston Tea Party
Parliament responded with the Intolerable Acts and shut down the Boston port
The Boston Tea Party
An iconic event that started the American Revolutionary War
