Kalifornia Kiddies
by Donovan
They grew right through the whole damned thing
From the beatnik beginning
Pissed and pilled and puffed and pricked
Down the highways of oblivion
They dug the rocking insects
And moved to mama mandrex
Saw right through our acid eyes
Released bonds of shame-sex

Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Love 'em every one
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Psychedelic child
Kalifornia Kiddies
Don't they drive you wild?

They felt our hippie happy days
They felt our deepest sorrow
They learned how to embrace the past
And the great Unknown Tomorrow
They'll soon put down this rubbish rock
That down the bog soon courses
Daft decadence and nazi groups
Foul and hostile forces

Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Love 'em every one
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Psychedelic child
Kalifornia Kiddies
Don't they drive you wild?

They listened to the sky with you
They heard the bell of peace ring
The message in the flower
The symbol of awakening
They saw you give up meats and sweets
And practice control passion
And all this done stoned, on the run
And through the veil went crashing

Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Love 'em every one
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Look out, world, here they come

They saw you gain a mantra
From the Master of the Wild Mind
Felt you feel way deep inside
Behind the Veil of Maya
Instinctively they opened up
Their spirit, eyes of wisdom
Their fairytale will never pale
They dance in love's bright freedom

Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Look out, here they come 
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Psychedelic child
Kalifornia Kiddies
Don't they drive you wild?
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Shinning in the Sun
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Look out, here they come 
Those Kalifornia Kiddies
Psychedelic child
Kalifornia Kiddies
Don't they drive you wild?
