Don't do anything illegal
Beware of the eagle
That's right in the middle of your back
Don't be the eagle
Got you in the back
They got you in a sack
And they keep you lookin' back

Don't do anything illegal
Beware of the eagle
It's got you by the neck
Don't do anything you shouldn't
And you never can say aw heck
I don't wanna do that
[chanting]

I gotta see your ID my friend
I gotta see your ID my friend
I got to see where you begin
I gotta see your ID my friend

Every time I go to the store
I gotta have an ID with me
I got to have an ID with me
I refuse, so they can see
What they wanna be
Free, I'm free

I got to see your ID my friend
When you come out of the hole
And you're up and down the highway
You got to have an ID
If you don't you can't go sideways

    General CommentGreat song.
    Eagle reminds me of Devendra Banhart's saying on his smokey album: "Relax the eagle; release the seagull." EAGLE is the government to me.
