A LITTLE AMERICAN'S PROMISE


I'LL eat corn-meal, oatmeal, and rice
And nice sweet hominy;
Corn flakes and mush with lots of milk
Are good enough for me.

At table I'll not leave a scrap
Of food upon my plate,
And I'll not eat between meals but
For supper time I'll wait.

I make the promise that I'll do
My honest, earnest part
In helping my America
With all my loyal heart.

This is a PROMISE, and I hope
All children make the sam.
I'll be a good American,
And herto sign my name,
