A Patriotic Leading

          Verse I.
Indeed indeed
Can you see
The stars.
And regularly the precious treasure.
What do we have without measure.
We know.

          Verse II.
We suspect the second man.

          Verse III
We are worthy of everything that happens.
You mean weddings.
Naturally I mean weddings.

          Verse IV
And then we are.
Hail to the nation.

          Verse V
Do you think we believe it.

          Verse VI
It is that or bust.

          Verse VII
We cannot bust.

          Verse VIII
Thank you.

          Verse IX
Thank you so much.
