Thank you for being our heroes and friends,
Having the courage to make us secure.
A child needs someone attentive and strong
Nearby to be certain that nothing is wrong.
Kids can get frightened and like to be sure.

You are the saviors, unselfish and pure,
On whom our bright vision of fortune depends,
Unstained as the innocent hope of our song.
