Lyrics of The Hippies

Where have all the hippies gone?
The ones who partied all night long.
And those who camped out on my lawn.
And never left until dawn.

They really haven't gone anywhere.
They just cut off all that hair.
The peace symbol "Make love not war"
is now lying in someone's drawer.

[Chorus]

Imagine that it's way back when,
We're in the 1960"s again.
Grab your friends and come with us.
Pile into that Volkswagan bus.

Because a full moon is shining bright
There's going to be a free concert in the park tonight.
Hey Man! It's going to be out of sight, Man! Groovy man!

Tie dyed tshirts, bell bottoms too,
Look around. They're me and you!
Gone to jobs in buildings that rise,
with that somewhere else look in their eyes.

I know it will never be the same.
We're older now. No one's to blame.
Responsibilities, too much to do.
Sometimes it can get the best of you.

[Chorus]

Imagine that it's way back when,
We're in the 1960"s again.
Oh grab your friends and come with us.
Pile into that VW bus.

Because a full moon is shining bright
There's going to be a free concert in the park tonight.
Hey Man! It's going to be groovy, Man!  Far out!

But memories are a powerful thing,
They make you laugh. They make you sing.
They make you think and wonder why.
They sometimes even make you cry.

Now and then you'll hear a hippy say,
"Hey man! Are you ready for a brand new day?"
Don't get stuck in the distant past.
The future is finally here at last.

[Chorus]

Imagine that it's way back when,
we're in the 1960"s again.
Grab your friends and come with us.
And pile into that Volkswagan bus.

Because a full moon is shining bright
There's going to be a free concert in the park tonight.

Hey man. Did ya see that concert last night?
Yea man. It was groovy man.
Were you there man?
Yea man. I was right next to ya man.
You were?  For real? Far out!
This is just too much man.
Peace.....man......groovy
