They tell me that you are small and I say yes,
For I have many times compared you to others
And they tell me you are different and I agree

Who will go on living no matter what,
Who has not yet been polluted like so many others

syrup maker for the world, home of cows
grower of green grass, father of farmers,
creator of ice cream,
beautiful, cold and rainy
