This a stanza from the song Talkin' karate blues by Townes Van Zandt:
I said, "I believe I better go check another place"
he said, "Ha so, Yankee don't like my race"
I said, "Now there's a mistake man, and that's true
I've been for you you japanese all along
you japanese just can't do no wrong
and I thought you got mighty dirty deal in World War II."
But I'm not sure what it means. After that been is there any hidden verb?
