I was standing on the sidewalk, heard a noise on my head
There were loudspeakers babbling and nothing was said
There were 27 companies of female marines
There were presidential candidates in new Levi jeans
It was the red, white and blue planning how to endure
The pipe, drum and bugle marching down on the poor
God bless America, without any doubt
And I figured it was time to get out

Well I had to flee the in-between singer people
I went and got a nun in the sun, good people
Tourist information said to get on this kick
You're not moving til you're grooving with a queue man in check
So I stepped on a plane, I took a pill for my brain
And discovered I was feeling alright

When I strolled down the grotto people looked at me weird
Who's that hippy-hoppy character without any beard
Drinking juice from papaya, singing songs to the trees
Dancing mambo on the beaches, spreading social disease
Now the cat's old convertible is changing its style
There's a whole lot of action on a blockaded aisle
When along comes a summons in the middle of night
Saying, "Buddy we're about to endize"

I went upon the stand with my hand, good people
You've gotta tell the truth in the booth, good people
We started out with information kind of remote
When a patriotic mother dragged me down by the throat
If they ask you a question, they expect a reply
Doesn't matter if you're fixing to die

I was lying there and conscious feeling kind of exempt
When the judge said that silence was a sign of contempt
He took out his gavel, banged me hard on the head
Fined me ten years in prison, and a whole lot of bread
It was the red, white and blue making war on the poor
Write mother justice on a pile of manure
Say your prayers and the pledge of allegiance every night
And tomorrow you'll be feeling alright
