  • Song Lyrics:
    Back when my hair was short
    I was a white socked sport
    Wore pointed shoes and pegged pants
    Drank till my eyes were red
    Hid Playboy neath my bed
    Slicked my d.a. for the dance

    Back when my hair was short
    I met some friends in court
    For stealing hubcaps from cars
    Chain smoking under the stars
    Played all night pinball in bars
    And dreamed about love

    We were experts on love
    We talked our way all around it
    And even if we had found it
    We couldn't respond

    Slowly, I changed my ways
    College and long-haired days
    Seeing three concerts a week
    An honest to God hippie freak

    Too busy eating to speak
    Except about love

    We held rallies for love
    But no one knew what they stood for
    How many months were they good for
    The meaning is gone

    Soon when my hair is short
    I'll make a full report
    Of how I came back alive
    And what it takes to survive
    Wringing the truth out of jive

    I'll tell you of love
    More than ever, it's love
    No lack of faith undermines it
    'Cause its the hope that we'll find it
    That makes us go on

    Back when my hair was short
    I was a white socked sport
    Holding beer parties till three
    College appealed to me
    Eastern Philosophy.....
