The 1960s in full swing
We bounce and dance this era brings
Svelte and with curls as we sing
Unknown behaviour as we fling
We temporize to delay time
Complex to be in our prime

A Heiligenschein we can see
And so happy we are all free
Inserting peace and love with glee
Rushing each day to go to quay
Tagging everyone who would come
And complete with guitars and drum

Freedom of speech one can do
Waiting for the coffee to brew
All the things we have to go through
Opportunity comes in blue
The 1960s is so cool
Spending our time in the pool
