Duck, duck, goose became
duck and cover.
Peace signs at Woodstock
while helicopters hover.

The draft is in force
teenaged boys sent to fight,
there are drugs and death
and nothing is right.

Love beads and fringe,
and “Classical Gas”.
Apollo will land,
but first Ike will pass.

Viet Nam is a blood-bath,
Sonny and Cher have a show.
Tricky Dick is in office now.
Well, what did we know?

We never learned from our history
didn’t better our place,
because all we brought back
was the smiley face.
