The Lips – 48 Dead Presidents lyrics

Well I never ever voted for no president.
You'll never see me dancing for no government.
I'm just burning stripes and stars,
And the red white and blue.

Call me Uncle Sam.
I'm doing what I can.
So raise your hands.
And sing a song about the nation and this "land."

Well I never ever found my place in line.
I never read a book about a God or time,
And just one more petty crime,
Could lock me up.

Call me Uncle Sam.
I'm just a working man.
So clap your hands.
And sing a song about our country "hand-in-hand."

Well I never ever saw a fucking country free.
I never read the laws about hypocrisy.
And with one more tax that's made,
I'll cut my throat.

Call me Uncle Sam.
