You say, hey
The state of the union
Is fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
I got the feelin' that you're
Lyin', lyin', lyin', lyin', lyin'

And you say the state of the union
Well it's fine fine fine, so it's fine fine fine
I think you're lyin', lyin', lyin'
I think you're lyin', lyin', lyin'
I think we need, I think we need
A new party

They say to me, they say what's the word
I say it's thunderbird
Why don't you fly, fly, fly, fly away hey
They say, they say uh, they say uh nothin'

They say hey tell me what's the world
I say it's thunderbird
You say it's thunderbird
Why don't you fly, fly, fly, fly away hey

And while you're at it, why don't you fertilize my lawn
Why don't you fertilize my lawn
With what's runnin' from your mouth
Runnin' from your mouth and uh
Hey listen here

We got, we got, we got uh to get off our ass or get burned
The world's troubles are a global concern
Does your child have fresh water to drink?
Wherever you are, wherever you are you're invited
To think about this

When in the course of human events
It becomes necessary, necessary
To take things in your own hands
To take things, to take the water from the well
And declare, tainted by greed
In house so we clean it up

Clean our house, our inner house
Our outer house, in hey, hey
By the way the event of the human event
Is the party of the century and you're all invited

It's where you are, wherever you are
'Cause this party is for everyone
And the price of admission
Is love one another, love brother
