There's a big, brown cloud in the city
And the countryside's a sin
An' the price of life is too high to give up
Gotta come down again
When the world wide war is over and done
And the dream of peace comes true
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

When they find out how to burn water
And the gasoline car is gone
When an airplane flies without any fuel
And the satellite heats our home
One of these days when the air clears up
And the sun comes shinin' through
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
An' eatin' that rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
An' eatin' that rainbow stew

You don't have to get high to get happy
Just think about what's in store
When people start doin' what they oughta be doin'
Then they won't be booin' no more
When a president goes through the White House door
An' does what he says he'll do
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
An' eatin' that rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
An' eatin' some rainbow stew

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
An' eatin' rainbow stew
