The Lyrics

they all live up on that mountain
its so, cause their funds are low
right down, those hippie people trickle
when to town, they want to go
they smoke that marijuana
little bushy stuff is what they grew
they asked me if i'd like to try
its not anything i would do

grubby hippie freaks...real friendly
ain't bathed in a week...untrendy
when they start to reek...it offends me
a drugged up team, if i ever did see one

those folks really bug me
in their ol' shack, layin' low
i bet their silly ol' grins
are results of that stuff that they blow
they claim to love the flavor
i thought it all just stunk
when that haze was seen
all around their shack
sure enough, there was funk

grubby hippie freaks...real friendly
ain't bathed in a week...untrendy
when they start to reek...it offends me
a drugged up team, if i ever did see one

they take up together, a-sinnin'
and they share their fellow brother's lass
they just whoop it up
and writhe in an embrace
just for a gas
they're the sickest things in the whole wide world
god, what a travesty
need a little love ?...that's fine
but let's keep it under three

grubby hippie freaks...real friendly
ain't bathed in a week...untrendy
when they start to reek...it offends me
a drugged up team, if i ever did see one

now me and my mates went out to their shack
with some scissors for their locks
i said, i can't take the way they look
beneath their filthy mops
and so then i grabbed this whiskered slob
and i shaved that dude, complete
then i turned and grabbed some other fool
to replicate the feat

grubby hippie freaks...real friendly
ain't bathed in a week...untrendy
when they start to reek...it offends me
a drugged up team, if i ever did see one

now, there's a bunch in california
mainly north of here, i'm told
but they're comin' down my road
its gettin' pretty old
but i guess i should not feel such trauma
when those creeps start rollin' in
cause you know, deep down
i'm kinda tempted
to go and play the barber again

grubby hippie freaks...real friendly
ain't bathed in a week...untrendy
when they start to reek...it offends me
a drugged up team, if i ever did see one
