Captain America and drunk Uncle Sam

Freedom Is In (and Oppression Is Out)

it’s captain america’s birthday again
he’s down on a barstool with drunk uncle sam
rememberin barbecue whiskey and guns
fighting in wars in which everyone won

a well-policed crowd on the street leaves no doubt
freedom is in and oppression is out

freedom is in and oppression is out

it’s captain america’s birthday once more
the celebrants push and they shove through the door
sucklin on medicines poured in a glass
dreaming of commerce and whims of the past

a hopeless man busking for dimes leaves no doubt
money is in and depression is out

freedom is in and oppression is out

it’s captain america’s birthday again
he’s down on a barstool with drunk uncle sam
rememberin barbecue, whiskey, and whores
punching young libertines onto the floor

cobblestones beating like hearts in the sun
e pluribus unim: from many came one

freedom is in and oppression is out
