Lyrics:


Intro:
Yeah, sing a song.


Verse:
If the sun refuse to shine,
I don't mind, I don't mind. Yeah.
If the mountains fell in the sea,
let it be, it ain't me.

Chorus:
                A7sus                            G7sus
Alright, 'cos I got my own world to look through
      F#7sus      F7sus   E
and I ain't gonna copy   you.

Now if 6 turned out to be 9
I don't mind, I don't mind.
Alright, if all the hippies cut off all their hair,
I don't care, I don't care.

Chorus

White collared conservative flashing down the street,
pointing their plastic finger at me,
they're hoping soon my kind will drop and die,
but I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high, wow.
Wave on, wave on.

Fall mountains, just don't fall on me.
Go ahead on Mr. Businessman, you can't dress like me.

Don't nobody know what I'm talkin' about.

I got my own life to live
I'm the one that's gonna have to die when it's time for me to die
So let me live my life
the way I want to

there

Sing on Brother,
play on drummer.
