  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • George Carlin's Muhammad Ali/America the Beautiful routine ends with him singing:
      O beautiful for smoggy skies
      Insecticided grain
      For strip-minded mountains majesty
      Above the asphalt plain
      America! America!
      Men sheds his waste on thee
      And hides the pines with billboard signs
      From sea to oily sea.

      When Carlin reused this routine in his 1972 album Class Clown, he added a piece on "the sexual side of Vietnam."
