The Lyrics

miss those hippie scenes
you know they were keen
miss those hippie scenes
free love and everything
woodstock lasted three days
twas the same in monterey
but altamont was one day
that nearly wrecked the hippie dream
we thought we knew the answers
we knew better in time

acid tests were real cool for gettin' your kicks
boy, i loved to party back in sixty-nine

miss those hippie scenes
tie dyes and blue jeans
miss those hippie scenes
we used to dance and sing
some thought we looked nasty
and said we should be banned
you know what we told them ?
just give peace a chance
we may not have looked pretty
but we had a good time

as we danced and we grooved with all of our friends
woodstock was our garden back in sixty-nine

(insert typical way-out sixties guitar solo)

but altamont was cancer
twas the end of the line

when i heard the bad news, it just made me feel sick
thrown out of the garden back in sixty-nine

yeah...miss those hippie scenes
