Red and white
Blue suede shoes
I'm Uncle Sam
How do you do?

Gimme five
I'm still alive
Ain't no luck
I learned to duck

Check my pulse
It don't change
Stay seventy-two
Come shine or rain

Wave the flag
Pop the bag
Rock the boat
Skin the goat

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done
Come and gone, my-oh-my

I'm Uncle Sam
That's who I am
Been hiding out
In a rock and roll band

Shake the hand
That shook the hand
Of P.T. Barnum
And Charlie Chan

Shine your shoes
Light your fuse
Can you use
Them old U.S. Blues?

I'll drink your health
Share your wealth
Run your life
Steal your wife

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done
Come and gone, my-oh-my

Back to back
Chicken shack
Son of a gun
Better change your act

We're all confused
What's to lose?
You can call this song
The United States Blues

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done
Come and gone, my-oh-my

My, my-my, my-my
My-oh-my, oh-my
Summertime done
Come and gone, my-oh-my
