The life line of America is here!
I don't seem to reconize you fellow!
Yes sir, I will admit polka dot is a strange color
For the life line of America!
Polka dot am I to represent all races,
So don't be confused,
I mirror the colors of all faces.
A dot of yellow, black, brown, white and red
So sir, let it not be said
That I am partial to one color of skin,
So Opportunity Sir,
Won't you let me in!
