Lyrics

play It ain't no joke
play I'd like to buy the world a toke
play And teach the world
play to sing in perfect harmony
play And teach the world
play to snuff the fires and the liars
play Hey I know it's just a song
play but it's spice for the recipe

play This is a love attack
play I know it went out but it's back
play It's just like any fad
play it retracts before impact
play And just like fashion
play it's a passion for the with-it and hip
play If you got the goods they'll come and buy it
play just to stay in the clique

play So don't delay, act now, supplies are running out
play Allow, if you're still alive,
play six to eight years to arrive
play And if you follow
play there may be a tomorrow but if
play The offer's shun,
play you might as well be walkin' on the sun

play Twenty five years ago
play they spoke out and they broke out
play Of recession & oppression & together they toked
play And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
play Just singin' and clappin' man
play what the hell happened

play Some were spell bound some were hell bound
play Some they fell down and some got back up and
play Fought against the melt down
play And their kids are hippie chicks all hypocrites
play Because fashion is smashin' the true meaning of it

play So don't delay,
play act now, supplies are running out
play Allow, if you're still alive,
play six to eight years to arrive
play And if you follow
play there may be a tomorrow but if
play The offer's shun,
play you might as well be walkin' on the sun

play It ain't no joke
play when mamma's handkerchief is soaked
play With the tears
play because her baby's life has been revoked
play The bond is broke up so choke up
play and focus on the closeup
play Mr. Wizard can't perform no GOD like hocus pocus

play So don't sit back kick back
play and watch the world get bushwacked
play News at 10:00 your neighborhood is under attack
play Put away the crack before the crack puts you away
play You need to be there
play when your baby's old enough to relate

play So don't delay,
play act now, supplies are running out
play Allow, if you're still alive,
play six to eight years to arrive
play And if you follow
play there may be a tomorrow but if
play The offer's shun,
play you might as well be walkin' on the sun
