LEADER: Today, as we leave, let's all keep in mind our flag and the meaning therein we can find.
CUB #1: The red is for blood of Americans true,
who gladly would give up their lives for you.
CUB #2: The white is for purity, in both thought and deed,
a rule of conduct we all might well heed.
CUB #3: The blue is for justice, for all, not one,
a tenet we fought for and so dearly won.
CUB #4: The star is a symbol of God's guiding hand,
over the union and this mighty land.
CUB #5: There isn't a one our flag won't protect,
don't you think we could show it greater respect?
