  • Song Lyrics:
    First I was a hippie
    Then I was a stockbroker
    Now I am a hippie again

    In the Summer of Love, I was mellow and high
    I had my bus and my dog
    and everything I needed to get by
    But the years rolled on and I settled down
    I parked my bus and took a car pool into town

    A stockbroker in a three piece suit
    I gave up sellin' hash and started doin' toot
    I had more money than I'd ever dreamed of
    I forgot all about the Summer of Love

    First I was a hippie
    Then I was a stockbroker
    Now I am a hippie again

    The years went by faster and faster
    Down on Wall Street they called me the master
    I soon had more money than Lady Astor
    I couldn't see an impending disaster

    But I wasn't happy
    I broke out in a rash
    I just couldn't handle the stress...
    And then came the crash

    First I was a hippie
    Then I was a stockbroker
    Now I am a hippie again

    I'm free -- I lost all I had and that's OK with me
    I'm free -- I think I'll check the oil in my van
    I'm free -- I've got tickets for all five nights
    of the Grateful Dead
    I'm free -- Hey, see my new macramé briefcase
    I'm free -- etc...
