What makes it better than all the rest? Why does leaving it, fill your heart with pain, And make you lonely 'til you return again? Sure, it's a pretty town, all nice and clean, Standing on a hill  majestic and serene It has houses and streets and a village square, It's magic you ask -- why, the people there! They give of themselves, and ask naught in return, "I am my brother's keeper" is the lesson they did learn. And, so they love each other and live from day to day Helping those less fortunate that they meet along the way. You ask me its magic -- why it's lasted so long, One hundred twenty-five years and seventeen hundred strong? It's the people  how I love them  this beloved family That live in my home-town of Mount Pulaski. May they never lose that magic, nor on love close fast the door, For with love to live by, it will last a hundred more. Marie Zebrun.
