Uncle Sam Checked into Rehab

Uncle Sam
Checked into rehab
Finally realized that something was wrong
Uncle Sam
It took an intervention
To get him to realize that there was something wrong

Now he sits in a circle, drinks a cup of coffee
Tries to listen to what other people say
Struggles to comprehend his defects of character
and what it might mean to just live life day by day

Uncle Sam
Started to question
Basic assumptions on which he’d based his life
Uncle Sam
Had to seek a Higher Power
Lessons in humility are sharper than a knife

Now he sits in a circle, and tries to tell his story
The other addicts listen with love and respect
Looking at the damage, looking at the good sides
Difficult to let go of all he’d come to expect

Uncle Sam
Conducted inventory
Made a little list of everyone he’d harmed
Uncle Sam
It took some courage
To lay down his attitude and lower his arms

Now he sits in a circle, older but wiser
Tries to live up to his principles in all his affairs
Coming to accept that he is far from perfect
But God will love him anyway and help him through his cares

Uncle Sam
Checked into rehab
Finally realized that something was wrong
Uncle Sam
It took an intervention
To get him to realize that there was something wrong
