What are the words to the Team Rocket motto?

There are variations from time to time -- often, the motto gets
interrupted in one way or another, and occasionally Team Rocket
themselves will "tweak" it for the particular circumstances of an
episode. (A particularly hilarious example of this is in the episode
"Pokemon Fashion Flash", where they talk about "[Dressing] all
Pokemon with flash and passion" and wind up the motto with "Surrender
your taste, or prepare to fight.") Perhaps the greatest departure from
the usual is in "The Song of Jigglypuff", where Team Rocket gets a
stereo system and a couple of microphones and actually do a song
of the usual motto.
However, the canonical version is as follows:
Jessie: Prepare for trouble...
James: ...and make it double!
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation,
James: To unite all peoples within our nation.
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love,
James: To extend our reach to the stars above.
Jessie: Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light!
James: Surrender now, or prepare to fight.
Meowth: Mee-yowth, that's right!
