At the September 15, 2007 "UN for Taiwan" rally in Kaohsiung, Cabinet Minister Shieh Jhy-wey (謝志偉) appears via video link-up from Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (oops! I misspelled it in the credits!) in New York City, rapping something that goes like this:

Take care of your own country

UN for Taiwan

自己的總統 自己選

My original attempt at romanization of the Taiwanese pronunciation didn't follow any known standard and was intended only to help, so please forgive the errors that are sure to be present. (If you have "annotations" turned on, you should see some corrections I made using this dictionary: http://twblg.dict.edu.tw/tw/index.htm .)

The ending music is from a tune called 快樂的初軓 ("Bon Voyage"). The melody is played on an instrument called an ocarina (陶笛).
