Ageing Hippies

Back to Album listing


John works in computers, Rod’s in consultancy
Tony’s with a multinational oil company
Simon he’s an ad man, but when we meet at John’s
We all take off our red glasses and we really get it on

Ageing Hippies, stop messing around
Take your suits off, and let your pony tails down
Ageing Hippies, you’re slipping too far
Forget the mortgage and pick up your guitars

The band reunion starts off at a quarter to eight
We check who’s thinnest on the top and thickest round the waist
The women leave the sinking ship as if at some command
They don’t mind the bad behaviour, it’s the music they can’t stand

John can’t play a boogie, Tony can’t keep time
Rod’s synthesizer plays itself, Simon can’t remember his lines
But we find a riff and play it till the early hours of morn
And then we have a bowl of soup and watch a little porn

Ageing Hippies, stop messing around
Take your suits off, and let your pony tails down
Ageing Hippies, you’re slipping too far
Forget the mortgage and pick up your guitars

Ageing Hippies, stop messing around
Take your suits off, and let your pony tails down
Ageing Hippies, you’re slipping too far
Are you ready to pick up your guitars?
