The dead are dea, yet we are all here living;
Today our Country asks not for the giving
Of all that we possess, as they,
But simply that we help to pay
Our debt to them in lending way.
No argument is needed to ensure
That which you lend; it is secure,
For all our glorious Country is behind it,
Now and foreever more; these bonds do bind it.
Hence lend again and once more win the prize,
The patriotic palm; be dutiful, be safe, be wise!
