Put on your Name Badge-ary
Here comes Rotary
So much funary
to join a Rotary

Rotary is Service Above Self
with a goal of putting Polio on the shelf

When you feel like the only folks in town who pay their quarterly fee
Here’s a list of people who are Rotarians just like you and me
Winston Churchill used to say.. the four way test
he didn’t wear the lions vest

Guess who else had a fireside chat
professional boxer Manny Pacquiao how about that
JC Penney and Charles Walgreens traded the rotary banner
so did Connie Mack, a big baseball fanner,

So put a dollar in the happy bucket son
cause you can give a classification speech with Walt Disney and Sam Walton

Put on your Name badger
it’s time for Rotary
Former President John F Kennedy
Flew the flag of Rotary

Kim Jong-un, not a rotarian
But guess who was? Adeli Stevenson,
We got Cecil B DeMille and Luciano Pavarotii
Colonel Sanders wa a Paul Harris fellow – not to shotty

Some people think that Harvey Weinstein is
Well he’s not, but who’s in our home
Pope Francis, the Bishop of Rome

So may rotarians helping others
Rob Grinkowski isn’t, but I heard all his brothers

Lets have a Murder Mystery
It’s time to celebrate Rotary
and win the four way speechary
while eating eggs so runnarrey
So drink your coffee and juicer
And say the pledge togethery

We love our Friday morningarys
Have a happy, happy, happy,
New Year of Rotary

Happy Rotary
