"Go Hippie" as written by Adam L. Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood....
Go, hippie
Skip down the old road
Don't even see me, do you at all
Some days you get so tired of hanging
Trying to deep-fry all your boredom

Big hippie
This day was so slow
And i can see you feel it too
Sometimes you wish you knew karate
Oh, the things that you could do, like
Crossing in between the greens
Just because you want to
Not because you ought to
Oh, how can you ever explain
They can never feel your pain
Neither can you

Mr. crabtree
Sits in the window
He sees a lot, but he don't know
That was you across the yard
Throwing brownies at his car

Sweet hippie
Keeping your head low
Around the car park you swing low
Some days it all falls down around you
Some days you fall down in the snow while

Crossing in between the greens
Just because you want to
Not because you ought to
Oh, how can you ever explain
They can never feel your pain
Neither can you

    General CommentUmm... well, no. It's really about the general stereotype of the hippie.
    "Crossing in between greens Just because you want to Not because you ought to": The greens are referring to all the unnessecary cleared out space for things like malls, which hippies opposed.
    "They can never feel your pain, Neither can you": Not many people really cared what hippies had to say, and hippies couldn't feel their pain cause they were always so loaded up on drugs.
    "That was you across the yard, Throwing brownies at his car": Some hippies believed that cars were corrupting, and a nusance to the environment.
    "Keeping your head low, Around the car park you swing low": From what I understand, (i'm not really sure on this one) hippies would actually slice tires of cars in car parks, and to not get caught they would keep their head low. Whether I'm right or wrong, I do know this... that guitar at the end is beyond the infinities of awesome.

    General CommentThis song is about being at skool, it about being different. The boy is bullied and wishes he could fight back, but he keeps his head low.
