The Lyrics

I was not around in 1969, but I'm into the 60s pop culture so I decided to make a parody out of it.
Sha la laaa,*

Sha la laaa!

Jenny bumped into the wall
She had just smoked it all
One joint a day
Husband's an aging hippy
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned 21.
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan?

She was gonna make a difference
She was gonna promote
She was gonna shake her fist
On the hood of the Beatles' Beetle
Her navy mini-van is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothin, has been...
all right since

The Doors, Janis Joplin
Way before Disco Duck there was Bob Dylan and Hendrix
And music still played on records
Her two kids are past twenty-two
Yet they still think that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1969

Sha la laaa!
(1969)
Sha la laaa!

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
"The Graduate ", "A Hard Days Night"
Even "The Sound of Music"
She rocked out to Hair
Not a big Britney Spears fan
Thought she'd get a spot
As a guest on Let's Make a Deal!

Where's the mini-skirt made with lovebeads?
And who's the other chick that married Paul McCartney?
Why is That 70s Show based on retro?
What ever happened to the Mamas and Papas,
(on the radio was)

The Doors, Janis Joplin
Way before Disco Duck there was Bob Dylan and Hendrix
And music still played on records
Her two kids are past twenty-two
Yet they still think that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1969

Sha la laaa!

She hates time, make it stop
When did the Rolling Stones become geriatric? (geriatric)
And when did Ringo become an actor?
Please make this stop, stop, STOP(tick tick tick) AND BRING BACK

The Doors, Janis Joplin
Way before Disco Duck there was Bob Dylan and Hendrix
And music still played on records
Her two kids are past twenty-two
Yet they still think that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1969

Sha la laaa!

The Doors, Janis Joplin
Way before Disco Duck there was Bob Dylan and Hendrix
And music still played on records
Her two kids are past twenty-two
Yet they still think that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1969

*I have substituted "woo hoo hooo" with "sha la laaa" since many songs in the 60s seemed to use it as a filler.
