    I'll tell ya what I'm talkin' about

    Makin' love at seventeen, yeah, we had the luck
    But we traded 'em toys and other joys, and we didn't give a (whoa-oh-oh)
    I took a chance at the high school dance, never knowing wrong from right
    And that same show, forty years ago, being televised tonight

    'Cause journey from inside my head to the Taj Mahal
    I went from never-havin'-none to wanna-have-it-all
    I wanna keep that dream alive
    And eat that honey from the hive
    With all the noise and all the glamour
    No surprise you know I am a
    Legendary child

    I think that what I'm tryin' to say is
    Sticks and stones will break your bones, at least they'll rearrange
    I drop a dime and every time I get myself a nickel's change (whoa-oh-oh)
    They say we don't know jack
    At the plant, we proved 'em wrong
    We traded in our souls at night and sold 'em for a song

    And if Satan had a lady friend, her name was Mary Jane
    I never wondered why she tried to drive us quite insane
    And how we got that golden fleece
    From tokin' on that pipe of peace
    Yeah, as far as I can see
    There is a God 'cause I got me a
