I (state your name)
do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Great City of New Babbage against all enemies, foreign and domestic;
that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation of Mayor freely,
without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion;
that I will keep her gears oiled, her mainsprings wound, and her steam engines stoked with coal,
and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of Mayor on which I am about to enter.
So help me Builder
