The Flea National Anthem

from My Slightly Grubby Heart by Once in a Moon



A cover of the song from the Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra's Master Flea as a test of chipmunk voicing.


O nation divine
O land we adore
Your foliage brown and shiny
Your soft pink earth is spiny
And blood flows freely at your core

This land is so big
And we are so small
But in your warmth we've flourished
And by your flesh we're nourished
You are the pupa of us all

To that great flag we will salute
Your enemies we'll flay and flog
No more a nation underfoot
But one nation on a dog
One nation on a dog
One nation on a dog


from My Slightly Grubby Heart, released December 31, 2017
Words: Reggie Chamberlain-King
Music: Martin White
