Guess who’s playing at the celebration of our new President Obama’s Inaugural Ball?

Who wouldathunk it?

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 hidin’ 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 ol’ 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?
Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.
Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my!

Wave that flag, pop the bag, skin the goat, learn to cope
Bell the rat, trap the cat, ball the jack, chew the fat
Read the signs, connect the lines, pay your fines, save your dimes
Pick up time, light the fuse, making time, pass the juice       

Eat at days, hide in caves, pull the tooth, stretch the truth
Feed the poor, starve the war, pick up chicks, catch the fix
Get your kicks, pick up sticks, trim your wick, take your pick
Try your tricks, impress the chicks

Wash the fence, dig the den, live the vain, die in shame
Catch the fool, burn the stew, shine your shoes , sing the blues

Wave the flag, pop the bag, bell the cat, trap the rat
Ball the jack, chew the fat, shoot the breeze, lose the keys
Read the signs, connect the lines, pay your fines, read the rhyme
Shoot the breeze, lose your keys, don’t be late, what I say

Stretch the truth, pull the tooth, feed the poor, starve the war
 the fix, get your kicks, trim your wick… take your pick
Try your tricks, impress the chicks

Wave that Flag!

The Dead is back!

All the above lyrics by The Grateful Dead…Thanks to Leilani Munter for the tip!
