Us For Sam


While all Europe is a shambles  And the whole world is at war,

And half the land the sun shines on  Is drenched in human gore;

When every Nation counts the men  It knows are tried and

We send this message to you,

Sam,  "Alaska stands with you."You never treated us quite right--  You grabbed away our coal,

You reserved all our fire wood  And what we've used, we've stole.

You soaked us on our cable tolls  But we don't give a

Even at twenty-eight cents per word  WE'RE

You've squandered untold millions  On the filthy Philippines,

But you always made Alaskans  Go and rustle for their beans.

And your black and tan possessions  Tho they've cost you quite a

We're quite unused to luxuries  And we've always played alone,

Your laws all have a "joker,"  Made to catch some Sourdough,

We've always been the dumping ground  For your political misfits,

But Sam, if you're in trouble  We're willing to call it "quits."We've never had an even break,  But we don't care a damn;

If the Lion growls, remember this,  WE'RE

We need some decent coast lights  And we need some decent trails.

You've given these to all the rest  But we don't care a damn;

If it's full grown men you're needing  WE'RE

TH

OU,

AM.
