America stop pushing I know what I'm doing. America the plum blossoms are falling. I haven't read the newspapers for months, everyday somebody goes on trial for murder. America I feel sentimental about the Wobblies . America I used to be a communist when I was a kid and I'm not sorry. I smoke marijuana every chance I get.
