I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) Lyrics - Sandi Thom



Review The Song (6)


[Chorus]
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn't play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn't have control
And the media couldn't buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

[Chorus]

When pop-stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

[Chorus]

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs,
And playing games meant kick around
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

[Chorus]

I was born too late to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

Confused rubbish | Reviewer: Max Vitesse | 11/30/13

Punk rockers don't have flowers in their hair. Typically it is hardened solid with gel, so you could't get any flowers into it. What a load of tosh this tune is.

PS I hope MiRaNdA has learnt to write by now.

Of course punk rockers don't have flowers in their hair -- except to be cheeky, perhaps. It's about TWO different music/social/cultural revolutions, hence the mention of '77 and '69. I think she appreciates the simpler times of those days (simple compared to now, at least) and wishes she could've been a part of them. I love the quirky juxtaposition of the hippies and punks. Even those the styles are dramatically different, aren't they really both about changing/challenging the status quo? Anyway, I love the song :)

Wake up! | Reviewer: Punk | 3/27/07

wake up! punk rockers don't have flowers in their hair. i have seen lots of punk rockers, personaly i listen to punk all the time, you know what i have in my hair? well, not flowers. mohawk+flower= >:( it isn't punk to have flowers in your hair, and i have never seen a punk rocker with flowers in his/her hair.
