The Hippies Were Right… It’s a true story

THE HIPPIES WERE RIGHT … it’s a true story
Verse 1

Seems like every time you look around the Hippies were right about what’s going down

Natures spring water right from the ground now sold in plastic by the pound

Forests of trees, they’re oxygen producin’, for corporate greed they’ll soon be reducin’

Livin’ on the land down in New Mexico plantin’ your seeds and makin’ ‘em grow

Chorus

Enlightened in thought, a pure future was sought, dismissed as a plot and affected by pot

But as it turned out the Hippies were right just look around it will give you a fright

Verse 2

Now there are wars all around us at home and abroad some maybe ligit some born of fraud

But kids are still dying for somebody’s God thought we put a stop to that in Viet Nam

Our leaders are liars, power junkies and thieves, addicted to tax, our money, their needs

At some point in time they will pay for their deeds but right here and now it’s up to you and me

Chorus

Enlightened in thought, a pure future was sought, dismissed as a plot and affected by pot

But as it turned out the Hippies were right just look around it will give you a fright

Bridge

We don’t really think for ourselves anymore we got plenty of masters to tell us what for

We don’t see the sky like they did before or hear that sweet music waft through the door

The Hippies were right, they were on a good flight, could’ve been the acid, the pot or sunlight

Don’t know how it happened how we came to lose sight but looking back the Hippies were right.

Verse 3

The corporate cowboys are selling us down they don’t want us gumming up their part of town

If it was sink or swim they would let us all drown no flower children dancin’ round and round

Are they corporations or is it organised crime they got the food, the gas and the time

They hold us up for ransom gotta tow the line we need to love one another all of man kind

Chorus – Outro

Enlightened in thought, a pure future was sought, dismissed as a plot and affected by pot

But as it turned out the Hippies were right just look around it will give you a fright

Enlightened in thought, a pure future was sought, dismissed as a plot and affected by pot

But as it turned out them ol’ Hippies were right just look around it will give you a fright
