Alabama 3 Woody Guthrie
Another psychopath in Iowa, loadin' up another round,
while the NRA in Columbine hunt Marilyn Manson down,
powder in the Pentagon, cruel letters in the mail,
some KKK white supremicist, cookin' up a dose of race hate

(CHORUS)
I don't need no country, i don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the Union Jack, stars and stripes have got me jet-lagged (x2)

ahhhhh no flag
no flag, no flag

A baby in Afgahnistan, cryin for his mama now,
While the BNP scare refugees in the alleyway's of oldham town,
hypocrites in Downing Street pourin' petrol on the flame,
((wiki: Satpal Ram|Satpal)) cries, asks Paddy, why do we always get the blame?

(CHORUS)

I don't need no country, i don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the Union Jack, stars and stripes have got me jet-lagged (x2)
ahhhhh no flag
no flag, no flag

I'll sing a song for the asylum seeker,
for the frightened baby on some foreign beach,
I'll bang a gong, and pray they reach a safe harbour.
Some mother in Jakarta, she lays down her weary head,
in some free-trade zone compound, where they work you till you're dead,
hunger stalks the factory floor, famine and disease...
seen the multi-nationals walkin' hand in hand,
Noam Chomsky's enemies,
i'll tell ya now...
(CHORUS)
I don't need no country, i don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the union jack, stars and stripes have got me jet-lagged (x4)
ahhhhh no flag
no flag, no flag
I don't need no country, I don't fly no flag
