Old Hippie by The Bellamy 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 


Well, he stays away a lot now from the parties and the clubs 
And he's thinking while he's joggin' 'round 
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
