More mellow beat.
Lyrics:


When I was young my parents raised me right
My dad sang me Beatles songs every night
Mom cooked organic meals, with homemade desserts
Everyday I went to school wearing tie-dyed shirts
I was taught to love and taught not to hate
I learned consumerisms bad, and G-d is great
Im anti-war, and Im all about peace
For a welfare-system, cant stand the police
If you cant dig it, you can get bent
Thats how it is, Im from hippie descent
From a family of hippies, even uncles and aunts
And at parties we all do the hippie dance

First you close your eyes and sway to and fro
Get your mind in the music and let yourself go
Now move your arms like the waves of the ocean
Keep it up dont stop this motion
Put a bend in your knee and a smile on your face
And the last step of all is to spin in place
Keep your arms gyrating and your body rotating
And now youre doing the Hippie

Well, the apple doesnt fall far from the tree
And being raised by hippies rubbed off on me
I dont think being a hippies a crime
I been called a dirty hippie more than one time
Call me a hippie Ill take it as praise
Im going to be hippie till the end of my days
Sickened by violence, disgusted by killing
My heroes are Lennon, Marley, and Dylan
I dont discriminate against people in any way
I think cigarettes are bad, but drugs are okay
So take some magic mushrooms start getting trippy
Take off your shoes and dance like a hippie

First you close your eyes and sway to and fro
Get your mind in the music and let yourself go
Now move your arms like the waves of the ocean
Keep it up dont stop this motion
Put a bend in your knee and a smile on your face
And the last step of all is to spin in place
Keep your arms gyrating and your body rotating
And now youre doing the Hippie

Well, Im a vegan so I dont eat dairy or meat
And I like to sing songs when I walk down the street
If I see a bum I always leave some change
Hes a human too although he looks kind of strange
I dont watch TV, I play hackey-sack
And for about ten years Ive had the same backpack
I got peace and love in my bloodstream
And Id love to kick it if youre on the same team
Whats mine is yours if whats yours is mine
So come be my house and well drink some wine
But recycle your bottles, dont throw them in the trash
And well all get together for a hippie bash

First you close your eyes and sway to and fro
Get your mind in the music and let yourself go
Now move your arms like the waves of the ocean
Keep it up dont stop this motion
Put a bend in your knee and a smile on your face
And the last step of all is to spin in place
Keep your arms gyrating and your body rotating
And now youre doing the Hippie
