WHEN I LOOK AROUND
AT MY LIFE IN THE SHRINE
MANY THINGS I CHERISH
STAND OUT IN MY MIND.
HOSPITALS FOR THE CHILDREN
THAT CAN'T RUN AND PLAY,
BRING HOPE TO THE FAMILIES,
IN SO MANY WAYS.
A CRIPPLED OR BURNED CHILD
GETS FIRST-RATE CARE,
AND THERE'S NEVER A CHARGE,
FOR ANY CHILD THERE.
AND I'M PROUD OF OUR CIRCUS,
THAT'S PART OF THE SHRINE,
IT BRINGS OUT THE CHILD,
IN ALL OF OUR MINDS.
I'LL STAND WITH MY BROTHERS,
AND SALUTE OUR FLAG,
BE IT BRAND NEW,
OR TATTERED AND SAGGED.
'CAUSE ITS HEAVILY ENTWINED,
IN OUR LODGE OF BLUE,
IT STANDS FOR OUR FREEDOM,
AND THE RELIGION WE CHOOSE.
WE'RE FROM MANY BACKGROUNDS,
AND DIFFERENT LIFESTYLES,
BUT WE NEVER STAND TALLER,
WHEN WE STOOP TO HELP A CHILD.
YES, I'M PROUD TO BE A SHRINER,
AND I LOVE THE PARADES,
'CAUSE CHILDREN'S LAUGHTER,
IS WHAT I GET PAID.
