Lyrics

I am a Hippie

1st Verse
Sitting on the Charles River some 20 years ago
Looking at 2 seagulls Craps and Mama Joe
Swimming in the corporate world watching weeks go by
And the good old times fly

CHORUS
I am a hippie
With a suit coat on
I am a hippie
Even though my hair is not that long
I am a hippie
Misunderstanding my own fear
I often ponder why the time is short
That we’ve got here

2nd Verse
Mama Joe and Craps flapped their wings and used their feet
We tried to get to know them a little so we threw them something to eat
Played a riff on my guitar
and we sang them this song
We were high organically speaking with our tongues

CHORUS
I am a hippie
With a suit coat on
I am a hippie
Even though my hair is not that long
I am a hippie
Misunderstanding my own fear
I often ponder why the time is short
That we’ve got here



Bridge
Without love we sing to ourselves
Tearing me apart letting go the hand I felt
Cause when you’re standing out in the rain
It’s the little drops that can leave the pain but it will

Bring me back to what once was make believe
The greatest gift of life is living on the memories
Thinking about it will bring me down To my knees

CHORUS
I am a hippie
With a suit coat on
I am a hippie
Even though my hair is not that long
I am a hippie
Misunderstanding my own fear
I often ponder why the time is short
That we’ve got here

Hippie freaks are running naked smokin peace and love
Hippie freaks are running naked smokin peace and love
Peace and love
