We don't have no plastic l.a. friends
Ain't on the edge of no popular trend
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine gq
We don't care if you're a lawyer or a texas oil man
Or some waitress busting ass at some liquor stand
If you got soul we hang out with people just like you

Well my hairs turning white
My necks always been red
My collars still blue
We've always been here
Just trying to sing a truth to you
Guess you could say
We've always been
Red white and blue

Ride our own bikes to sturges pay are own dues
Smokin' camels and drinking domestic brews
If you want to know where I've been just look at my hands
Yeah I've driven by the white house and spent some time in jail
Mama cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail
I ain't been no angel but even god he understands

Well my hairs turning white
My necks always been red
My collars still blue
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say
We've always been
Red white and blue

Yeah that's right

My daddy worked hard and so have I
We paid our taxes and gave our lives
To serve this great country
So what are they complaining about
Yeah we love our families we love our kids
You know it's love that makes us all so rich
That's where were at
If they don't like it they can just get the hell out, yeah

Well my hair's turning white
My neck's always been red
My collar's still blue
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you

Well my hair's turning white
My neck's always been red
My collar's still blue
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say
We've always been
Red white and blue

Red white and blue
Ya know, ya know, ya know
Red white and blue
Yeah, red white and blue

    General CommentKeeebler7, that is probably the most anti-American thing you could say. Since our founding fathers started this country, it has been about one thing: Change. Laws have changed, dozens of amendments added to the constitution, the meanings of which have been contested for hundreds of years by the Supreme Court. If anything, trying to change things when something isn't quite "clicking" right is the only thing that could possibly be considered American. If we hadn't changed anything in the past 100 years, African Americans would still be segregated against and Women would still have little to no rights outside of the Kitchen. Even our forefathers knew that the words of the constitution would need to be changed and modified, and that it was just a guideline by which to form our country...so why can't you understand that. I have to say that this is a pretty unamerican song, mainly because of the "get the hell out" lyric, but also because of the "blue collar" reference. If you're all Blue Collar and you think you ARE what this country is, then why do you defend a government that is setting our country up to tear down the blue collar worker and send all blue collar jobs overseas in favor of an entirely white collar society? Wake up -- you're being played for a fool.

    General Commentthis is a great song and i love the part where he says "if they dont like it, they can get the hell out" thats so true. Dont come over to our great country and try to change things, this is our country not yours.

    General CommentThey should've made the lyric "I don't like you if you're Red, Black, or Queer, and if you don't like it then get the hell out of here!"

    That would've made it truly patriotic, in the Keeebler7 sense of the term.
