    It's from the song "America." First verse:

    "My Country Tis of Thee.

    Sweet Land of Liberty

    Of Thee I Sing"

    "my country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty..." etc

    lame joke :(

    the child thinks its countries name is Tis of Thee because it goes "my country; tis of thee". thinking that the song is saying the name right after "my country"

    its from the national anthem, the opening lyrics go "my country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty" the kid thought the song was saying the name of the country was tis of thee
