Lyrics:

There's a place beneath the western sun,
A country proud, a nation next to none,
An oasis amid the desert sand,
Standing tall in this uncommon land.
From the mountains high down to the valleys wide,
Our flag of blue and white and green it ever flies,
Where hawks and mustangs roam,
Fair Molossia is our home.
Treasured land of wind and sage and mighty dreams,
Our country strong and free and proud, it reigns supreme,
Fair Molossia is our home,
Fair Molossia is our home.
