While digesting Readers Digest
In the back of a dirty book store
A plastic flag with gum on the back
Fell out on the floor.
Well,I picked it up and ran outside
And slapped it on my windowshield.
And If I could see ol Betsy Ross
Id tell her how good I feel.

(Chorus:)
But, you flag decal wont get you
Into Heaven anymore.
Theyre already overcrowded
From your dirty little war
Now Jesus dont like Killin
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal wont get you into Heaven anymore.

Well,I went to the Bank this morning
And the cashier said to me
If you join the Christmas Club
We'll give you ten of them flags for free.
I didnt mess a round a bit
I took him up on what he said
And stuck them stickers all over my car
And one on my wifes forehead.

(Chorus:)
But, you flag decal wont get you
Into Heaven anymore.
Theyre already overcrowded
From your dirty little war
Now Jesus dont like Killin
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal wont get you into Heaven anymore.

Well,I got my windshield so filled with flags I couldnt see
So I ran my car upside a curb and right into a tree
By the time they got a doctor down
I was already dead,
And Ill never understand
Why the man,
Standing in the Pearly Gates said

(Chorus:)
But your flag decal wont get you into Heaven anymore,
Were already overcrowded from your dirty little war
Now Jesus dont like killin
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal wont get you into Heaven anymore.
