All for You

What you will say, We will say also. Brine is mud, mud brine. Deep is shallow and Shallow deep. Pigeons crows and Crows pigeons. What you will say, We will say also. Sun comes in night, Moon in the day. Night is bright, Dark is the day. DNA is RNA, RNA DNA. Oil is heavy, Water lighter, Gas is heaviest. What you will say, We will say also. Our faith unshakable, in you is blind. No questions, No queries, No F&A Q s. Your word is final, O’ Nimrod!, bless us bless us!
