  • It ain't no joke I'd like to buy the world a toke
    And teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
    And teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
    Hey I know it's just a song but it's spice for the recipe

    This is a love attack I know it went out but it's back
    It's just like any fad it retracts before impact
    And just like fashion it's a passion for the with it and hip
    If you got the goods they'll come and buy it just to stay in the clique

    So don't delay, act now supplies are running out
    Allow, if your still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow there may be a tomorrow but if
    The offer's shun, you might as well be walkin' on the sun

    Twenty five years ago they spoke out and they broke out
    Of recession and oppression and together they toked
    And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
    Just singin' and clappin' man what the hell happened

    Some were spell bound some were hell bound
    Some they fell down and some got back up and
    Fought against the melt down
    And their kids are hippie chicks all hypocrites
    Because fashion is smashin' the true meaning of it

    So don't delay, act now supplies are running out
    Allow, if your still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow there may be a tomorrow but if
    The offer's shun, you might as well be walkin' on the sun

    It ain't no joke when mamma's handkerchief is soaked
    With the tears because her baby's life has been revoked
    The bond is broke up so choke up and focus on the closeup
    Mr. Wizard can't perform no GOD like hocus pocus

    So don't sit back kick back and watch the world get bushwacked
    News at 10:00 your neighborhood is under attack
    Put away the crack before the crack puts you away
    You need to be there when your baby's old enough to relate

    So don't delay, act now supplies are running out
    Allow, if your still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow there may be a tomorrow but if
    The offer's shun, you might as well be walkin' on the sun

    line is an explicit comment against the role that fashion took in the hippie movement and how it was used by society later on. To younger generations (part of which was made up of childs of hippies) considered being a hippie to wear a certain kind of clothing and outfits and to talk in a certain way, instead of focusing on the
