  • Yeah, sing a song for us
    If the sun refused to shine
    I don't mind, I don't mind (yeah)
    If the mountains fell in the sea
    Let it be, it ain't me (well alright)
    I got my own world to look through, and ah
    And I ain't gonna copy you
    Yeah (it's alright)
    Now, if a six turned out to be nine
    I don't mind, oh, I don't mind (well alright)
    If all the hippies cut off all their hair
    I don't care, I don't care
    Dig, 'cause I got my own world to live through, and ah
    And I ain't gonna copy you
    White-collar conservative flashing down the streets
    Pointing their plastic finger at me
    They're hoping soon my kind'll drop and die
    But I'm, I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high, wow!
    Wave on, wave on
    Fall mountains, just don't fall on me
    Go 'head on Mr. Businessman
    You can't dress like me, yeah
    Don't nobody know what I'm talking about
    I've got my own life to live
    I'm the one that's gonna have to die
    When it's time for me to die
    So let me live my life
    The way I want to, yeah
    Sing on brother
