The Lyrics

Seems like yesterday we were eighteen
We were the hippies of the hippie scene
We wore tie-dye shirts in the sun
Following the Grateful Dead was fun
Oh yeah, following the Grateful Dead was fun
It wasn't often that we'd bathe at all
It wasn't often
It wasn't often that we'd wash our hair
It wasn't often
We wore tie-dye shirts in the snow
All those short-sleeved shirts made us freeze, though
What I am now is what I was then
I am not much cleaner than all them
It wasn't often we were clean at all
It wasn't often
It wasn't often that we washed our clothes
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
Seems like yesterday we were eighteen
We were the hippies of the hippie scene...
