Old Glory floats o’er Me.labon.
Honor them, your noble dead,
Fair Oregon your heroes dead
Have won for you enduring fame,
Have won for you an honored name.
While floats the flag o'er Malabon
Shall live the Second Oregon.
Home again, to rest and sleep,
Where loving friend may weep and weep:
Where roses bloom, where violets grow,
Where your own western breezes blow,
To sleep In cousecrated earth
Beneath the soil that gave yon birth:
While floats the flag o'er Malabon
Shall live the Second Oregon.
Then lay the flowers, lay the bay

Can give up youth and love and life.

The strife is o’er, the battle’s won;
Then cover them o’er, each beloved son;
To rest, to sleep, forever and aye,
Where roses bloom, where tall tirs sway,
Among the hills they loved so well.
Where rippling brooks and zephyrs shall,
While floats the flag o'er Malabon,
Sing of the Second Oregon;

For Liberty hath sped.
