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 makin' 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)
Bomb go boom! Uh! Boom!
Boom! Boom! (Oh Lord)
The bomb goes boom!
Teacher, Y won't Jimmy pledge allegiance?
