The 1960's

 

This degenerate old man with his walking stick

Remembers the good times of the sixties well,

Singers stopped singing and started stripping

And began to scream and yell,

The airwaves were full rockstars heading for their graves

And their fans screamed louder than lunatics in a padded cell,

" Eve Of Destruction " exploded to number one

But when the earth would end, God could only tell,

All that marijuana smoke made me lose my brain

And luckily my sense of smell,

But everybody got happy like the Manson family

And tossed their morals like pussy down the well,

Bob Dylan protested, " I don't sing drug songs, well

not unless they're gonna sell, "

And whined, " Everybody must get stoned "

As he shot up in the Chelsea Hotel,

And later became a born again Christian

Because he didn't want to burn in Hell,

Vietnam the rock 'n roll war, the Americans easily lost

Their troops were too stoned to aimed their bullet shells,

This was all long ago, and most of the rockers are dead

But I can hear their ghost chords tolling like funeral bells!
