VERSE 01: Without a doubt we are one grand old nation,/And we've been very fortunate of late,/For the way we've handled the grave situation,/Has kept us from this European scrape./Now we have lots of friends across the ocean,/And as true Americans, should be intent,/To help and with our measure of devotion,/Uphold the hands of our wise government.CHORUS: Uncle Sam, it's up to you, to do all that you can do,/To help the fighting nations come to terms,/You know the Stars and Stripes have in former days of strife,/Brought peace for which our hearts again do yearn./Let our people try again, a peace mission to extend,/And they'll ne'er forget the Yankee Doodle Do/Uncle Sam, let them see/We're friends across the sea,/For really, Uncle Sam, it's up to you.VERSE 02: We're one in heart and over there we've brothers,/Who are fighting for their home and country dear,/So we would share their burdens and their sorrow,/And send a loving word of hope and cheer./In Freedom's land now let us band together,/And our offers of peace again renew,/For kindly deeds and sympathies unbroken,/Are cluster'd round the dear red, white, and blue.
