Lyrics:
Intro: Yeah, sing a song.
Verse: If the sun refuse to shine, I don't mind, I don't mind. Yeah. If the mountains fell in the sea, let it be, it ain't me.
Chorus: A7sus G7sus Alright, 'cos I got my own world to look through F#7sus F7sus E and I ain't gonna copy you.
Now if 6 turned out to be 9 I don't mind, I don't mind. Alright, if all the hippies cut off all their hair, I don't care, I don't care.
Chorus
White collared conservative flashing down the street, pointing their plastic finger at me, they're hoping soon my kind will drop and die, but I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high, wow. Wave on, wave on.
Fall mountains, just don't fall on me. Go ahead on Mr. Businessman, you can't dress like me.
Don't nobody know what I'm talkin' about.
I got my own life to live I'm the one that's gonna have to die when it's time for me to die So let me live my life the way I want to
there
Sing on Brother, play on drummer.
