Tomorrow, please vote, from seven till ten,
persevere, for time can’t go back again.
Five aims of the EU; five things we try to do:
Together, we promote economic and social progress –
helping people earn enough money and get treated fairly.
Together, we speak on the international scene –
By working as a group Europe is listened to by other countries.
Together, we introduced European citizenship –
As citizens of the EU, we have four special rights.
We want Europe to be an area of freedom, security and justice,
and to help Europeans live in safety, without threat of war.
We maintain and build on EU law,
in order to protect people’s rights in member countries.
Persevere, for time can’t go back again.
Tomorrow, please vote, from seven till ten.
