It’s Probably Me (by Sting, Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton, and David Sanborn)

America – Prince and the Revolution 

I’ve been listening to a lot of Prince over the last month. One of the cool things about albums growing up was extended versions of songs. You’d have some songs that would stretch well into 6 to 8 minutes. The first three minutes are lyrics, and the rest is for dancing or background work. America, off of the 1985 Around the World in a Day Album is one of my favorites. Below is a version of the song played live in concert.

Enjoy!

 

Yeah
Peace!
Aristocrats on a mountain climb
Making money, losing time
Communism is just a word
But if the government turn over
It’ll be the only word that’s heard
America, America
God shed his grace on thee
America, America
Keep the children free
Little sister making minimum wage
Living in a one-room jungle-monkey cage
Can’t get over, she’s almost dead
She may not be in the black
But she’s happy she ain’t in the red
America, America
God shed his grace on thee
America, America
Keep the children free
Freedom
Love
Joy
Peace
Jimmy Nothing never went to school
They made him pledge allegiance
He said it wasn’t cool
Nothing made Jimmy proud
Now Jimmy lives on a mushroom cloud
America, America
God shed his grace on thee
America, America
Keep the children free
America, America
God shed his grace on thee
America, America
Keep the children free
Freedom
Love
Joy
Peace
Boom, boom, boom, boom
The bomb go
Boom, boom, boom, boom
The bomb go boom
Teacher, why won’t Jimmy pledge allegiance?
