what i tried to send you

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
when did you EVER see dee dee or sid with fucking FLOWERS in their hair??
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
big difference between the revolutions though, don't you think?
I was born too late in to a world that doesn't care
because we're not much more educated about how we treat this world of ours nowadays? back in the days when we didn't give shit about pollution, animal rights, women's rights, gay rights...
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
joe strummer with poppys in his hair... now THAT would've been funny

When the head of state didn't play guitar
nah, reagan could act but he wasn't too good with getting the chords right
Not everybody drove a car
-69: us at the peak of the car-excitement. start building 'em highways!
When music really mattered and when radio was king
because music doesn't save lifes today? say that to the emo kids who claims chris cabarra saved theirs.
When accountants didn't have control
accountants unite! let's take over! ted smith, you first!
And the media couldn't buy your soul
we are all sheep, ruled over by the powerful mtv
When computers were still scary and we didn't know everything
knowledge is BAD! it is better to be uninformed, live in a bubble and never be able to chat with people outside that bubble. damn you internet for widening our horizons!

[Chorus]
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
patti would look just lovely with daffodils in her bangs
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
ah yes, the good old days
I was born too late in to a world that doesn't care
pflag, greenpeace, unicef...
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
johnny goes "lilies or daisies, lilies or daisies..."

When popstars still remained a myth
"john and paul are the cutest, but ringo seems the one who's down-to-earth. what do you think martha?"
And ignorance could still be bliss
yeah, go for the "if I can't see them, they're not there"-mentality.
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
...
My mum and dad were in their teens
which means they had SEX LIKE BUNNEHS or you wouldn't be here
And anarchy was still a dream
...and it's reality now? I don't get your point.
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail
yay! it takes money and a thousand years to tell your friend what's on your mind! who needs msn messenger, I've got a biro and some paper, let's CHAT

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
didn't david byrne look just faaabulous with them rosebuds?
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
especially here in sweden, where homosexuality was still officially a disease
I was born too late in to a world that doesn't care
we cared a lot about the south africans living under apartheid
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
bruce foxten loved his flowers

When record shops were still on top
just because they're online doesn't mean they're gone
And vinyl was all that they stocked
really handy, those vinyls, I can't carry my mp3player with me anywhere
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
dude, route 66 got busy during the 60s
Kids were wearing hand me downs
"yay! mommy made me these awesome chlotes from our old bedspreads! they're so comfy and practical!"
And playing games meant kick arounds
me and my sister only bond over wii. possibly ps2
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face
beckham would look smexy like that though

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
pete shelley and his flowers...
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
so was those old planes starting to distroy our ozone layer
I was born too late in to a world that doesn't care
but back then we all cared about minorities, except when they were different from us
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
and the list goes on...
