Sing Songs flying bird.
Sonorous voice fill the air.
Pressured lyrics fill my ear.
Sound of purity, wash the soul.
Drown the sound of the awful owl.
As a machine revving in the day,
thy voice governs the revving in the night for the whole.
You soar high and rule the sky in the day and night, in fairness and equity.
Reveille! Lazy sleepy headed siblings.
He is ready to shew its dexterity,
ready to enrich the pocket of our souls.
Humbly I stand on my feet.
Teach me and my siblings,
for we crave to live and live free.
We long to sing, and sing well.
We acknowledge thy dexterity.
Never forsake us we plead.
