The bubble bursted in 1968
With the hippy child
In a hippy age
Love and peace, man
On everyone
It's a shame our generation
Don't say that anymore
But guess what, there's

Hippy children
Makin' the money
Hippy children
Tastin' the honey
Hippy children
Workin' in the city
Hippy children
In little houses sittin' pretty

And this month
I saw the news
And paused
I see an advert
Advertising life styles
So save your conscience
For Sunday afternoon
Read your paper
And have a Sunday snooze

And drive your clean car
Through those clean streets
They had long hair
You've got short hair
They had long hair
You've got short hair
They make love
You make money
They make love
And guess what


When I look at myself today
I can hardly believe I am what I am
Because we're all living in the big gutter
There's something about looking at the stars
While the hippy children hangin' out at wine bars

    General CommentThis song is by a band called Circus which were formed before Blur and had Damon Albarn on vocals. Great song though, I love it!
