The Lyrics

College students in the late 1960s challenged authority, wanting free love and no codes for dress or hairstyle (as far from military as possible), In TOS, a mimic of anthropologist Margaret Mead supported them, arguing that man is just another animal. Using similar logic, I defend college men today whose every touch or word might be labeled sexual assault. Their freedom is gone.

You know kids, I wish every mom and dad
Would make a speech to their teenage boys
And say "Kids, be free, be whatever you are,
"Do whatever you want to do,
"Just so long as you don't hurt anybody.
"And remember kids, I am your friend."


I would just like to say, flat out as bygone fiction,
That longing stares and micro-aggressive actuations
Of behavior are nothing more
Than the male's emergence from his drab campus lodge
Into the broads-and-booze age;
Itching from dearth, might proffer sex.

Spare us yuppie rulers' notion that swelling at cleavage
And hindquarters is not proper for the male;
When fa-a-a-ctually,
Females males' playthings are, in most mammals.

At Woodstock, who could have anticipated the Women's Liberation movement or Political Correctness?

Since "boys" possibly has racial connotations, I'd change it to "sons" in line 2. TOS said "teenagers".
