Yeah
Peace
Whoo!
Yeah...

Aristocrats on a mountain climb
Makin' money, losin' time
Communism is just a word
But if the government turn over, it'll b the only word that's heard

America, America, God shed His grace on thee
America, America, keep the children free

Little sister make minimum wage
Livin' n a 1-room jungle monkey cage
Can't get over, she almost dead
She may not b n the black, but she happy she ain't n the red

America, America, God shed His grace on thee
America, America, keep the children free

Freedom
Love
Joy
Peace

Jimmy Nothing never went 2 school
They made him pledge allegiance, he said it wadn't cool
Nothin' made Jimmy proud
Now Jimmy live on a mushroom cloud

America, America, God shed His grace on thee
America, America, keep the children free
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
America, America, keep the children free

Whoo!
Freedom
Love
Whoo!
Joy
Peace

Boom! Boom! (Oh Lord)
Boom! Boom! (Oh Lord)
And the bomb go boom! Uh! Boom!
Boom! Boom! (Oh Lord)
And the bomb go boom!
Teacher, why won't Jimmy pledge allegiance?
