The Lyrics

sure did enjoy ya...joy was bloomin'
head all sizzlin', but wasn't scared
saw that band and how they delivered
fans were covered in tie-dye and hair

sweet rockin' mamas...danced with their fellas
all havin' high times with blazin' eyes
they had discovered this wonderful worship
rockin' to the rhythm...downright lobotomized

hey now, ain't this scene delightful ?
its got everything i need
make a deal, if i'm wantin' drugs now
buy a ticket...do the deed

we went trippin' for days, so violent
we'd parade in our tie-dye , too
we would come and hits, we'd swallow
at that stage, wild things came in view

well, we could dance and clap with rhythm
jumpin' so silly...we'd hop and dive
join the summer tour...and spring, fall and winter
we would be happy...just to be alive

sure did enjoy ya...singin' the songs, well
watchin' the stage lights...boppin' and swingin'
all zonked out on yellow sunshine
come on honey...share that bong with me

though i'm dead, i still am grateful
i would follow...they would lead
a toke on my pipe...in the sun or the moonlight
blazin' from the drugs, fine...yes, indeed

sometimes, with that guitar's cryin'
when the whoops of bass would sound
sometimes, with those drummers flyin'
i'd have to dance and flail around...i'd flail around

fun times...drug scene....fun times...drug scene
gettin' me a brain-freeze
everyone in bright clothes...zoomin' as the joy grows
breathin' more freely...loudly singin'
all zonked out on that yellow sunshine
fun times...drug scene...fun times...drug scene
zonked on yellow sunshine

Great job, here, alvin...it certainly catches the "feel" of the 'Dead's best years. I might take a whirl at recording this (when I get my voice back, that is). 5's ~ ~ ~
