Prince – America lyrics

Eh, yeah, eh

Aristocrats on a mountain climb
Makin' money, losin' time
Communism is just a word
But if the government turn over
It'll be the only word that's heard

America, America
God shed His grace on thee
America, America
Keep the children free

Little sister make minimum wage
Livin' in a one-room jungle monkey cage
Can't get over, she's almost dead
She may not be in the black
But she happy she ain't in the red


Freedom? Love? Joy? Peace

Jimmy Nothing never went 2 school
They made him pledge allegiance
He said it wasn't cool
Nothin' made Jimmy proud
Now Jimmy live on a mushroom cloud

Chorus {x2}

Freedom? Love? Joy? Peace

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! (Oh Lord, oh Lord)
And the bomb go
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
And the bomb go

Teacher, why won't Jimmy pledge allegiance?
