Coke & Aramaic: Who Would Have Thought?

I was quite surprised when some interesting things started to come into my Twitter feeds for Aramaic.

Apparently, the whole “Twitter outrage” over a Coca Cola ad that dared sing  “America the Beautiful” in different languages sparked some interesting Aramaic-related retorts:

Tweets about “aramaic coke”

So on a lark, I figured “what the hell?” and put together the ditty in Galilean. Had to finagle things a bit, but you can sing to the same tune.

Also it was done in the middle of the night, so apologies for typos. I’ve already spotted one, and 10 points to whoever catches it before I fix it. 🙂

What other Biblical languages can we get “America the Beautiful” in?
