Go, Hippie
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Utopia Parkway

Go, hippie 
Skip down the old road 
Don't even see me, do you at all 
Some days you get so tired of hanging 
Trying to deep-fry all your boredom 

Big hippie 
The day was so slow 
And I can see you feel it too 
Sometimes you wish you knew karate 
Oh, the things that you could, like 

Crossing in between greens 
Just because you want to 
Not because you ought to 
Oh, how can you ever explain 
They can never feel your pain 
Neither can you 

Mr. Crabtree 
Sits in the window 
He sees a lot, but he don't know 
That was you across the yard 
Throwing brownies at his car 

Sweet hippie 
Keeping your head low 
Around the car park you swing low 
Some days it all falls down around you 
Some days you fall down in the snow, while 

Crossing in between greens 
Just because you want to 
Not because you ought to 
Oh, how can you ever explain 
They can never feel your pain 
Neither can you
