rec Aug 13th 1952
The state of the world is such
That the world is in quite a state!
But let's not worry too much,
Let the rest of the world debate;
Right now the thing to discuss
Is the wonderful status of us!
The state of our union,
Hearts in communion,
Never will know any foreign entanglements;
Outsiders will not rate
In our united state.
We'll make the altar
Strong as Gibralter;
Fooling around will be unconstitutional,
Great will be our united state!
With nothing but true love in the ascendance,
We'll always sign and renew
A declaration of dependance,
Where you depend on me and I depend on you!
We'll have a white house,
Small but a bright house,
Built on the pursuit of star spangled happiness;
Hurry, let's name the date,
Darling, for our united state!
Can't wait for our united state!
