Each nation, we know, will brag
Of what its possessions are;
And everyone thinks its flag
Is better than others, by far;
Without being proud or vain,
Or talking the least bit "tall,"
Allow me to here explain,
America beats them all!

The ladies we daily meet,
Oh! where can you find their match?
So stylish they dress, and neat,
Their glances we love to catch.
Their Langtreys may boast their curls,
Their graces, their hands so small;
For genuine lovely girls,
America beats them all!

They send us their actors here
From over the bounding sea;
We pay for them mighty dear,
Whoever they chance to be.
But talent we've got to spare.
Tragedians, great and small;
With our Mary Anderson fair,
America beats them all!

They tried to take back the "cup,"
But didn't, as well you know;
Quite sadly they cave it up,
Their "cutters ' were rather "slow."
We can't boast a navy grand,
But for yachts that are great and small,
I want you to understand,
America beats them all!

In athletics we're the "boss,"
Our Meyers was never beat;
At ball matches, pitch and toss.
Who can now with us compete?
Of boxers, where is the man
That wouldn't before ours fall?
With our John L. Sullivan,
America boats them all!

Then here's to our flag so bright.
Still honored throughout the world;
While liberty sheds its light,
It ever shall be unfurled.
And just bet your bottom dime,
In everything, great or small.
That here, now, and every time,
America beats them all!
