Let's get patriotic


A twist on "America the Beautiful."


O wonderful for jeans of white
For spies without their shirts
Enthralling us while carrying out
Activities covert
O handsome, brainy operatives
May Russ your wiles deploy
Kelly and Scott foil bad guys' plots
And bring us boundless joy.

O wonderful for gorgeous scenes
From Athens to Hong Kong
Our heroes conquer all their foes
To rid the world of wrong
I Spy lives on in stories full
Of intrigue, thrill, and grit
Each episode a mother lode
Of scintillating wit.

O wonderful for Cosby, Culp,
Leonard, Friedkin, and Fine
Never forgetting Hagen's theme
Or Fouad's skills divine
I Spy glows with a magic touch
Like tennis shots well placed
But nothing tops the photo ops
Of spies bare to the waist.
