The Lyrics

Well Berkeley, San Francisco
Is the strangest part of town,
And if you go out there,
You gonna start to stare
At a rad named Ringo Brown.

Now Ringo, he's not normal.
He thinks it's 1964.
Berkeley ladies think he's stoned on acid,
All the men just think he's bored.

And he's rad, rad Ringo Brown,
The weirdest man in the college town.
Funkier than Dylan's bongs,
More groovy than the Grateful Dead.

Now Ringo, he's a Deadhead,
And he likes his denim clothes.
And he likes to wear his hemp tattoos
In front of everybody's nose.

He's got a pink and fuschia Volvo,
He's got an V and W bus.
He's got 'bout 32 joints in his pocket for fun,
He's got a bong pipe in his shoe.

And he's rad, rad Ringo Brown,
The weirdest man in the college town.
Funkier than Dylan's bongs,
More groovy than the Grateful Dead.

Well Friday 'bout a week ago,
Ringo smokin' weed,
And at the edge of the park
Streaked a girl named Boris,
And ooh that girl looked sweet!
Well, he cast his eyes upon her,
But she really was a man,
And Ringo Brown got so grossed out,
He tried to hit him with his van!

And he's rad, rad Ringo Brown,
The weirdest man in the college town.
Funkier than Dylan's bongs,
More groovy than the Grateful Dead.

Well, the two men took to fighting,
And then they passed out on the ground.
Ringo and the transgendered nudist
Were just about equally stoned!

And he's rad, rad Ringo Brown,
The weirdest man in the college town.
Funkier than Dylan's bongs,
More groovy than the Grateful Dead.

And he's rad, rad Ringo Brown....

Ha! This was funny, so I give it 5-5-5. Having said that, is Ringo Brown for real or is he just a metaphor for all hippies still living like he does?
