The 60's were fun, the 60's were cool
A large group of teenagers sat in front of a school

The 60's were fun, the 60's were fly
Some people thought that they would die

Some people were hippies, some people were not
Some people were killed in the middle of a lot

Some people lived, some people died
And the ones that lived just tried to stay alive

Some people went to Woodstock
Some stayed with their families at home
Others were all alone

Some would wear flowers and beads in their hair
Others would dance around in the windy air

Some would say, "peace, love, and happiness"
Others say, "stop all this 60's mess"
