THAT'S WHAT HIPPIES DO

They grew up in the ’60’s…and as their lives unfurled

They discovered they were righteous…laid back…two groovy kind of girls.

 

They had long hair…down to their shoulders…some people thought them wild

They were hippies…free spirits…unconventional…each one a flower child.

 

They wore their clothing tie-dyed in colors bold and bright

When they made the scene…they were a gas, a blast…so out of sight!

 

They would have gone to Woodstock but their parents didn’t approve

They believed in peace and love and they were always on the move…

 

But time has a way of moving too… and though they’re not sure how

Those two hippies of the ‘60s…are in their 60’s now.

 

Yet, through the years…through jobs and family

though their lives have rearranged….

they stayed as cool as they were back then

and their values haven’t changed….

 

They were sculpted by their past and no matter how old they grow

There is a universal truth…that they…as hippies…know….

 

Although there are certain parts of life over which they have no control….

They remain free spirits in their hearts and hippies in her soul.

 

They oppose violence…

They oppose hate and war…

Their symbol is the dove

They strive for a world of peace

They pursue a world of love.

 

So here’s to all the old hippies out there….

and any younger hippies too…

Let’s keep trying to make the world a better place…

 

because that’s what hippies do.
