(What can you say about our country?)

Once I was happy and I felt no pain
Sang like a sparrow in the pouring rain
Someday those days are coming back again
When you are history

Look like some kind of fallen chimpanzee
Who was it kicked you from the ugly tree?
What makes you think that you're the boss of me?
Why don't you go away?

Everybody say
Hey, clown
We're gonna put you in the ground
We had it all and then you blew it all away
Everybody say
Hey, clown
You turned our happy upside-down
We're gonna burn your flag and piss on your parade
(Piss on your parade)

There's something that I just got to say to you
These are the worst times that I ever knew
And all my troubles are because of you
And your pathetic crew

Every time I see you on my TV screen
I wanna disappear or run and scream
And your existence is the worst bad dream
that I ever knew

Everybody say
Hey, clown
We're gonna put you in the ground
We had it all and then you threw it all away
Everybody say
Hey, clown
You turned our happy upside-down
We're gonna burn your flag and piss on your parade
(Piss on your parade)

    General CommentMore like I get the feeling he's talking about President Bush. lol.

    "(What can you say about our country?)"
    Gives the hint already it'll be about some form of politics.

    "Once I was happy and I felt no pain
    Sang like a sparrow in the pouring rain
    Someday those days are coming back again
    When you are history"
    Once Bush's term ends and he becomes a part of "history", the man will go back to being happy.

    "Look like some kind of fallen chimpanzee. Who was it kicked you from the ugly tree?"
    There's been plenty of jokes about Bush looking like a monkey. lol

    "We're gonna burn your flag and piss on your parade."
    Protest in burning the American flag, maybe?

    "Every time I see you on my TV screen"
    The news.
