"The '60s are gone, dope will never be as cheap, sex never as free, and the rock and roll never as great."
Hippies use side door…(I miss the 60’s)
Can’t drink from the same fountain,
Can’t use the same front door,
Does this remind you of the south and north?
In a time when human beings were less than citizens,
They couldn’t even celebrate July fourth…
Long hair and clothing that was different,
Drugs and love and sex, living free of rent,
So many there were, they lived and well meant,
They did what they did in a time well spent,
Now so many years past tense they have no need to repent…
A different language they spoke,
Groovy, peace, love, and taking a toke,
Maybe their childhood forgotten in smoke,
The next generation did nothing but coke…
Trips beyond the astral plain,
In their heads acid did screw up their brain,
Drugs created to help the insane,
Found to be used for the self to entertain…
