We Had Flower Power

Now that our peace and love days have gone by
It’s time to look back, it’s time to realize
That some of our causes lived some of them died
When we were still young with passionate lives
Cause when we were young we grew up in a nation
That fought a cold war, put a man on the moon
We loved when the “who” sang “my generation”
We had flower power when we were young.

Those were the days when the headlines were screamin
About freedom riders and one who was dreamin
Out on the balcony he was just standing
When they shot the man who had a dream.
Cause when we were young we repealed segregation
Fought the cold war, put a man on the moon
It was also the age of women’s liberation
They had flower power when we were young.

Back then we said that these days will have meaning
In our bomb shelter till the all clear was ringing
While the folkies and even some rock bands were singing
Songs full of social and political change
Cause when we were young we marched on the government
Fought the cold war, put a man on the moon
Our protests were valid but not always innocent
We used flower power when we were young.

They made a show on heroes of the sixties
Some tried to get rich and some tried to fix things
Some wanted free love but they always paid something
Even in those days most things had a price
When we were young we all loved rock and roll
Fought the cold war, put a man on the moon
We dug from the roots of country and soul
And got flower power when we were young.

When we were young we thought we’d live forever
Put an end to war and a man on mars
We thought we’d have time for all our endeavors
We had flower power when we were young.
We had flower power when we were young.
