They tried to pass an amendment in the U.S. Congress
Seems these thugs have some grievance to redress
They said we all must pledge allegiance, 'cause that is what they need
We may not desecrate their symbol of hypocrisy and greed

But the flag is just a rag
The flag is just a rag
Just a worn-out, tired, dirty, blood-soaked rag

Pledge allegiance to the symbol, well how about the deed
Allegiance to democracy or blind authority
It's a flag of war from L.A. to Vietnam
It desecrates itself each time the Air Force drops a bomb

But the flag is just a rag
The flag is just a rag
Just a worn-out, tired, dirty, blood-soaked rag

Like they say in Mexico, "Yankee Go Home"
Uncle Sam and his club thinks the world's there to roam
And to make the point well they do the traditional thing
Light a match and let freedom ring

But the flag is just a rag
The flag is just a rag
Just a worn-out, tired, dirty, blood-soaked rag

So burn it, stomp it, tear it up or at least hang it upside down
Tie it to your foot and drag it on the ground
Let everybody know how many lives are gone
'Cause of idiots who said, "My country right or wrong"

But the flag is just a rag
The flag is just a rag
Just a worn-out, tired, dirty, blood-soaked rag
