So you're tired of America
You're tired of having clothes to wear and shoes on your feet and enough to eat
You're fed up with the unpretendity to find a job and make at last a decent living
You wanna change it all revolutionize demonstrate march fight in the streets
And you want me to join you
Well we'd better stand upon our feet we'd better think before we speak
These are the things that make the nation weak

So you're sick of our flag to you the Red White and Blue no longer stands
Old Glory the symbol of freedom has lost it's meaning
Bring old Glory down stop it burn it turn your back on it bring it down to stay
And while you're making a fireburn and growing long hair
Your brother has died in Vietnam you forgot that you are an American
Well we'd better stand upon our feet...

Oh have we thought about what we can do for our country
Instead of trying to make it weak
Have we thought about what the black men and the white men
Can do together I don't mean in the streets
Have we thought about those who have no arms and legs to fight with
And those who can't speak what would been done for them
Have we thought about what we can do them prove our schools
Instead of trying to degrade them
Whom we're trying them press anyway ourselves or our friends
What difference would it make fifty years from now to us
But what about the child you're wearing
Or is the hammer and sickle more pealing to you than the symbol of freedom
Well we'd better stand upon our feet...

So grow long hair wear dirty clothes curse the police
Burn your draftcard destroy our flag dishonor our nation
Hedgehop an airplane march in the streets
Forger that you're an American destroy yourself and I'll see you in hell
Cause that's what it's gonna be like after we're through
The great eagle no longer flies but lies dead in the south
And the great nation that wing falls with it
No I love America and so do you if you'll admit it
But we'd better stand upon our feet...
No you're not tired of America because you're not tired of being free
