My hippie boy don't wanna be a man.
My hippie boy don't wanna understand.
My hippie boy lives in a Volkswagen van.
My hippie boy don't know how to communicate,
Says he knows love that knows no hate.
My hippie boy leaves his life up to fate...
Yeah...he's my hippie boy.

My hippie boy don't know his own feelings,
Wants to draw flowers on my ceiling
I think my hippie boy is trying to do me in.
My hippie boy don't follow the commandments,
Don't follow law, he don't follow government.
My hippie boy wants to start his own settlement...
Yeah...he's my hippie boy.

He said "come sit beside me,
Tell me about the things you adore,
And please don't remind me,
That I am not the boy you'd hoped for."

My hippie boy won't get up off his ass.
He don't care if he fail or if he pass.
My hippie boy, I know he's been smokin'
Grass.
My hippie boy don't ever know where to
Begin
Says he wasn't put on this earth to fit in.
My hippie boy has his mama stickin' up
For him.
Yeah he's my hippie boy.

He said "come sit beside me,
Tell me about the things you adore,
And please don't remind me,
That I am not the boy you'd hoped for."

My hippie boy left our lives to join a band,
Says his band plays throughout the land.
My hippie boy bought him mom a car for
Twenty grand.
They say he's puttin' our town up on the
Map.
The mayor called this morning for a photograph,
And kids are asking me for my autograph
Yeah... 'cause of my hippie boy.

    General CommentThis song is great... a good "parental" point of view. I think deep down, this father really admires the way his son has chosen to live. My friend Luke says this song is about him... really, it's about me. It's hippies EVERYWHERE.
