"Summer of '69"
— to the tune of the same name by Bryan Adams

(To be used against George W. Bush)

I got my first real coke spoon
Bought it at Yale's five-and-dime
Snorted till my septum bled
Was the summer of '69

Me and some DKE brethren
Scored some blow and we got real pissed
Buffy died, Sparky got married
Never thought I'd be runnin' for this

Oh, when I look back now
The stuff we scored was some really good shit
And if I had the choice
I'd shoot everyone who saw me do it
Won't discuss those days of my life

We all know what I hint I did
Won't discuss before '74
Spent my evenings rubbing freeze on my gums
Ain't no use askin' anymore

Standing on my daddy's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh and when I said, "No way
Ain't 'fessing to coke ever
Won't discuss those days of my life"


Oh yeah ... back in the summer of '69

Man we were killing time
We were young and wealthy
We needed to unwind
I guess nothing could last forever
Forever ... no

And now I'm writing drug laws
And I tell the kids that drugs aren't nice
Sometimes I think it really just ain't fair
Think I change my mind and think about Christ

Standing on my daddy's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh and when I said, "No way
Ain't 'fessing to coke ever
Won't discuss those days of my life"

Oh yeah ... back in the summer of '69
Uh huh ... it was the summer of '69
Oh yeah ... me and my eieo in '69
It was the summer, summer, summer of '69
