I’m not much of a patriot
I don’t like the National Anthem before games
It intrudes on whatever great thoughts I’m having at the time
At the Washington Monument, I like the big pyramid in the sky
But all the flags around it kinda made me nautious

But my Mom told me ‘bout Germany before the war
Hearin’ them marches in the street
Getting thrown out of school
And she watched the synagogue burn burn burn
She watched the synagogue burn.

(lyrics: Dan Bern)
