This country needs to check its bleepin attitude
This country needs to show a little gratitude
Too many whine well
You ain't paid your dues
Stop playing and start telling the bleepin truth

Sat down listened to the radio
Song after song man I don't know
Nothing but love joints and party tunes
Meanwhile we're headed down the tubes
More than a trend we're the last in line
Don't give me that speel bout party lines
Baby it's time to shake things up
Speak a little louder
Show a little guts

This country needs to check its bleepin attitude
This country needs to show a little gratitude
Too many whine well
You ain't paid your dues
Stop playing and start telling the bleepin truth

I don't hear a single protest song
Don't you think maybe something's wrong
Generations sowing their heathen seeds
Dead babies pregnant kids materiality
Sorry if I ain't a lot of fun
It's hard to sit and watch us come undone
In case you're out there keeping track
Ain't no politician ever had my back

This country needs to check its bleepin attitude
This country needs to show a little gratitude
Too many wine well
You ain't paid your dues
Stop playing and start telling the bleepin truth
The Bleepin Truth
