Ole Hippie - Bellamy Brothers/The Bacon Brothers

He turned thirty five last sunday

 

In his hair he found some gray

 

But he still ain't changed his lifestyle

 

He likes it better the old way

 

So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence

He's consuming what he's growing nowadays in self defense

 

He get's out there in the twilight zone

Sometimes when it just don't make no sense

 

He gets off on country music

 

Cause disco left him cold

 

He's got young friends into new wave

 

But he's just too friggin' old

 

And he dreams at night of woodstock and the day

John lennon died

 

How the music made him happy and the silence made him cry

Yeah he thinks of john sometimes

 

And he has to wonder why

 

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do

 

Should he hang on to the old

 

Should he grab on to the new

 

He's an old hippie his new life is just a bust

He ain't trying to change nobody

 

He's just trying real hard to adjust

 

He was sure back in the sixties that everyone was hip

 

Then they sent him off to vietnam on his senior trip

 

And they forced him to become a man while he was still a boy

 

And in each wave of tragedy he waited for the joy

 

Now this world may change around him

 

But he just can't change no more

 

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do

 

Should he hang on to the old

Should he grab on to the new

 

He's an old hippie his new life is just a bust

He ain't trying to change nobody

 

He's just trying real hard to adjust

 

Well he stays away a lot now from the parties and the clubs

 

And he's thinking while he's joggin' around

 

Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs

 

Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday

 

And pretty soon the species will just up and fade away

 

Like the smoke from that torpedo just up and fade away

 

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do

Should he hang on to the old

Should he grab on to the new

 

He's an old hippie his new life is just a bust

He ain't trying to change nobody

 

He's just trying real hard to adjust

 

He ain't trying to change nobody

 

He's just trying real hard to adjust
