A Reader in Saudi Arabia Has A Victory Chant for Our Side
From: William Corr (e-mail him)
Re: Saturday Forum: A California Reader Says Bo Sears Must Not Have “Anything Better To Do”
Try these out for size:
- Los Gringos Unidos / Jamas Seran Vencidos *
[Chant it aloud in unison. It has good snap and rhyme to it.]
- *Nosotros Los Gringos Unidos / Jamas Seremos Vencidos*
[Nine syllables followed by two in ‘Jamas’ then three and three; perfect to set to music]
Corr writes from Dhahran in Saudi Arabia where he teaches in a medical school. His previous letter about women who serve in the military is here.
Joe Guzzardi adds: I like it! For those who need a translation, Corr’s ditty goes: “Gringos united will never be defeated!” Too bad the English version loses quite a bit of its punch.
