The Lyrics

Remember "The Mod Squad" ? The "Mod Squad" was a TV cop-show (1968-1973) with a trio of fashion-forward juvenile delinquents: Pete had stolen a car, Linc had been arrested during a riot, and Julie was a runaway from San Francisco. All three were on probation when they met Captain Adam Greer, a tough but sympathetic cop. Greer proposed that they join forces to form a special "youth squad"—they would go undercover in the thriving Southern Californian youth subculture and ensnare adult criminals who preyed on the kids. The three hipsters agreed, and The Mod Squad was born. Linc, played by actor Clarence Williams III, would express his approval of something he thought was cool by saying, in his deep bass voice, "SOLID."
If Judge had his way
Them kids
Would get put
'way forever
(ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo, ooo-)

(-ooo) Pete, Linc, and Julie
They could honestly say
That Greer's idea sounded better
(ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo, ooo-)

(-ooo) "Kids, crime doesn't pay!
Dust out the demons that hide,
In California!"

So "The Mod Squad" was born
Three young hipsters with hearts
Full of pride


And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool

Crime-fighting man
With a fine Afro too

Dressing like hipsters
Hippy-like lovers
Stealing crime's thunder
While under-cover

And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool


She stared into space
Julie was dosed by "The Man"
(ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo, ooo-)

(-ooo) Cliff-edge, it beckoned
And hallucination
Made Julie think she's Peter Pan
(ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo, ooo-)

(-ooo) Linc shouted "Girl!
Flyin' ain't right, let me help!
You don't have feathers!
Julie, we love you!"
Linc saved that girl,
From herself


And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool

Crime-fighting man
With a fine Afro too

Dressing like hipsters
Hippy-like lovers
Stealing crime's thunder
While under-cover

And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool


(instrumental)


Linc shouted "Girl!
Flyin' ain't right, let me help!
You don't have feathers!
Julie, we love you!"
Linc saved that girl,
From herself


And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool

Crime-fighting man
With a fine Afro too

Dressing like hipsters
Hippy-like lovers
Stealing crime's thunder
While under-cover

And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool

Dressing like hipsters!
Hippy-like lovers!

And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool

Crime-fighting hipsters!
Bell-Bottom copsters!

And I guess that's
Why Linc's "SOLID" 's
So cool
