The Lyrics

A reaction to 60's retro fashion.
People turning hippy
'cause they think it's cool
wearing lots of clothes that
make them look a fool.
Caught inside a time-warp
back to '69,
don't they realise
they're out of their minds.

CHORUS:
You might sometimes wear a kaftan
or paint the sun around your eye,
please just make me a small promise, oh,
say you'll never,
never tie-dye.
Don't you ever,
don't ever tie-dye.

If you follow fashion
and hippy's where it's at,
even though it makes you
look a total prat.
All dressed up in cheese-cloth,
silk and satin too,
the colours clash so much
you wanna spew.

CHORUS:
You might sometimes wear a kaftan
or paint the sun around your eye,
please just make me a small promise, oh,
say you'll never,
never tie-dye.
Don't you ever,
don't ever tie-dye.

Don't you ever tie-dye,
don't you ever tie-dye,
never tie-dye

Paisley patterned waistcoats,
22 inch flares,
love beads by the dozen,
braides all through your hair,
peace and love and Woodstock,
what a pile of cack,
like the scarf tied in round your head
and hanging down your back.

CHORUS:
You might sometimes wear a kaftan
or paint the sun around your eye,
please just make me a small promise, oh,
say you'll never,
never tie-dye.
Don't you ever,
don't ever tie-dye.

Never tie-dye.

One of my favourite Black Sabbath songs from one of my favourite Black Sabbath albums, how could I not like this?

Minor details though, the ”or” in “or paint the sun around your eye” seems to be one word more than the line needs, and I couldn’t get the part / like the scarf tied in round your head / and hanging down your back / to match when I sang along. Except for that the pacing was very, very good. Some more rhymes to match with the originals words and I would have said excellent. Not a perfect 555 but it’s > 4,51 x 3 so you’ll get a 555 vote anyway.

excellent pacing, funny, great wording, great parody, BUT I will still continue to tie dye, and let my freak flag fly... sans paisley and flares, okay we do have some fashion faux pas. tie dye forever.
