Lyrics:

BELL-BOTTOM BEATNIK

VERSE

I was part of the hippest beat generation,
My beatitude got so much admiration,
but as the 1960s finally drew to a close,
A new form of social style and music arose

Where as a beatnik I would always dress all in black
a turtleneck, sunglasses, and the rest of the crap
The 70s brought disco and the glamor and glitz
And jazz got replaced with all those danceable hits!

CHORUS

Bongos, drum machine, it
has you taken away
Bell Bottom Beatnik
Disco ball, black beret
Once you're on the scene it
makes you go all the way
Bell Bottom Beatnik
Disco ball, black beret


VERSE

I used to be mellow with my cool cat style,
My bongo playing got all the chicks for a while
but as the 1960s decade came to an end,
I had to find a new style to hang with my friends

Where as a beatnik I would sit in the back of the room
And hear poetry spoken to a rad jazz tune
Now to get the girls I got a fro with my beard
But it doesn't mean my beatnik side has all disappeared!

CHORUS

Bongos, drum machine, it
has you taken away
Bell Bottom Beatnik
Disco ball, black beret
Once you're on the scene it
makes you go all the way
Bell Bottom Beatnik
Disco ball, black beret

VERSE

Goatee, sideburns, moustache and beret
and a polyester shirt opened up all the way
lots of medallions and some platform shoes,
Gotta mix it up cause I don't wanna choose

Half of me is beatnik with the cool poetry
But the chicks dig the disco, man you have to agree
So I gotta head to where the action is at
But it doesn't mean I'm gonna be a copycat!
[Exit]
