The Lyrics

Guess I was born too late, being born in '64. I remember the '60s as a kid, but missed all the sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll.
1000 rock groups, each one great
And playing psychedelic tunes,
They serenade some hippies
who smoke pot and live on a commune,

I wish I was back in the Sixtie-ie-ies,
Having orgies everywhere,
Haight-Ashbury was the place to be,
Where everyone seemed to care.

In '68 they had Prague Spring,
And revolution was in bloom,
With JFK, we got to space,
And put astronauts on the moon

I wish I was back in the Sixtie-ie-ies,
World Trade Center rising fast,
Liz Taylor and Dick Burton found true love,
Although it didn't last.

Beatles touring around, And Woodstock was profound,
When people tripped on LSD (ah, ah, ah, ahh)
And in May '68, the Paris kids wouldn't wait
To try and change society-y-y.

With Janis Joplin and the Airplane,
Meditating Donovan,
With Jimi Hendrix, Abbie Hoffman's
Levitating Pentagon.

I wish I was back in the Sixtie-ie-ies,
It would give me such a kick,
I wish I was back in the Sixtie-ie-ies,
'Cause 2003 just makes me siiiiick

Groovy, man. Never mind that the Paris student revolution and the Prague spring failed. But you'd run too if you saw Red Army tanks or DeGaulle's nose comin'. But if you ever do get that DeLorean out of the shop, take it up to New Haven in 1967, and take some pictures of the goings-on at the Delta Kappa Epsilon house. Then take them to South Carolina in 2000. 'Cause I really wanted to see that Gore-McCain debate.
