[CHORUS] 'Cause he's an old hippie And he don't know what to do Should he hang on to the old Should he grab on to the new He's an old hippie This new life is just a bust He ain't trying to change nobody He's just trying real hard to adjust He was sure back in the sixties That everyone was hip Then they sent him off to Vietnam On his senior trip And they forced him to become a man While he was still a boy And behind each wave of tragedy He waited for the joy Now this world may change around him But he just can't change no more [repeat CHORUS] Well, he stays away a lot now From the parties and the clubs And he's thinking While he's jogging 'round Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs 'Cause him and his kind Get more endangered everyday And pretty soon the species Will just up and fade away Like the smoke from that torpedo Just up and fade away [repeat CHORUS] Yeah, he ain't trying to change nobody He's just trying real hard to adjust
