>incense and peppermints
who cares
long-legged hippie girls
in silk-upholstered chairs

lady godiva
I’d rather be in philadelphia
manic depression
manic depression

the wind cries mary
haven’t had a good day since ’69
haven’t had a good day
my makeup’s divine

old worn out carpet is tearing a hole
in the old worn out image of you
broken shoes bother my feet sometimes
Hey, mister. Can you spare a dime?

incense and peppermints
who cares
long-haired hippie boys
longings and images I can’t forget
take another little piece of my heart
Another little piece of my heart
