I used to listen to the radio
And I don't guess
They're listenin' to me no more
They talk too much but that's okay
I don't understand a single word they say
Piss and moan about the immigrants
But donâ??t say nothin' about the president
A democracy don't work that way
I can say anything I wanna say

So fuck the FCC
Fuck the FBI
Fuck the CIA
Livin' in the motherfuckin' USA

People tell me that I'm paranoid
And I admit I'm gettin'
Pretty nervous, boy
It just gets tougher everyday
To sit around and watch it
While it slips away
Been called a traitor and a patriot
Call me anything you want to but
Just don't forget your history
Dirty Lenny died so we could all be free

    Song MeaningF the CC meaning Fuck the FCC.
    The FCC is the Federal Communications Commission that regulates interstate and international communications and has increasingly started to censor the media.

    addition to ruarchitect:
    i also think that "Dirty Lenny" is an allusion to Lenny Bruce and specifically in this context referencing a quote from Lenny Bruce, who said: "Take away the right to say 'fuck' and you take away the right to say 'fuck the government.'".

    General CommentMakes a strong point that this is America. We have freedom of speech. We should be able to talk about the president and curse without condemnation. I believe
    "Dirty Lenny" refers to Lenny Bruce.
