U MARCA DE PLU HARLEK-AN

Pan Harlek-an, sti honora!  Zero Saxon-pe sti fobo.
Kin ad ante anti pan-ra!  Na ne fugi ab!
Kine tak ad ante  Akorda trompeta!
Kin ad ante, ne a versi, e don a mu surprise!
Sti viole pro na Kimru!  Panto na sura es fratri.
Habe fide de alelo!  Vikto alo morta!

Pan na matri nu lakrima,  Pan sorori tena vigi,
Sed oligo na nu kumbe  A milita agri.
Pan trompeta soni,  Dic a na u signi:
Anti panto mu, non-ami,  Dura panto cide!
Don a panto mu ple fobo  E pan Saxon-an sti fugi,
Ka na Teo sur audi,  Na fu gen u vikto!

Lincoln and Liberty



LINCOLN AND LIBERTY

Hurrah for the choice of the nation,
Our chieftain so brave and so true!
Let's go for the great reformation,
For Lincoln and liberty, too.

Let's go for the son of Kentucky,
The hero of Hoosierdom through,
The pride of the suckers, so lucky,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.

They'll find what by felling and mauling,
Our rail-maker statesman can do;
For the people are everywhere calling
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.
Then up with our banner so glorious,
The star-spangled red, white and blue,
We'll fight 'til our banner's victorious
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.

Our David's good sling is unerring,
The Slavocrat's giant he slew,
Then shout for the freedom preferring
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.
Let's go for the son of Kentucky,
The hero of Hoosierdom through,
The pride of the suckers, so lucky,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.


LINCOLN E PANTO-PE LIBE

U boni elekti de landa,
Na cefa ko fid e koragi--
Na volu u mega re-forma
Pro Lincoln e panto-pe libe.
Na volu na Kentucky fili,
Koragi-pe de Indiana,
Bombasti de stato Ohio--
Pro Licoln e panto-pe libe.

Pro forti, ka uti peleki
E face plu dendro-ma fragma,
Na demo ex panto-lo puta
Pro Lincoln e panto-pe libe.
Sti leva u glori insigni
Ko rubi, cian e leuko.
Na lukta, a-kron id es vikto
Pro Lincoln e panto-pe libe.

Per bali-ru an pote cide
U mega-pe supra pan dulo.
Na voci, ka na volu libe
Pro Lincoln e panto-pe libe.
Na volu na Kentucky fili,
Koragi-pe de Indiana,
Bombasti de stato Ohio--
Pro Licoln e panto-pe libe.

We'll Sing to Abe Our Song


For an English translation, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Laurie
. This was a popular song during Lincoln's time, and may have been one of his favorites.

ANNIE LAURIE

Maxwelton ci es kali ko proto mana pluvi;
So la mi Annie Laurie pa dona u promise,
Pa dona u promise e pan-kron memo id.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.

Fe fronta feno nivi, fe kola es de cignus,
Fe facia maxi kali, qi es in holo Geo,
Qi es in holo Geo, fe oku es ciano.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.

A flor u pluvi kade, e so fe gresu soni;
Estiva venti moti, e so fe gluko voka,
E so fe gluko voka.  Fe es mi holo Geo.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.
