I went to school in hand washed shirts with neatly oiled hair And the school was big and
newly built and filled with light and air And the teacher taught us values that we had to
learn to keep And they clipped the ear of many idle kid who went to sleep. Till my father
organised for me a college in the east But I went to California for the sun shine and the
beach My parents and my lecturers could never understand Why I gave it up for music and
the Free electric band Well they used to sit and speculated upon their son's career A lawyer
or a docter or a civil engineer Just give me bread and water, put a guitar in my hand
'Cos all I need is music and the Free Electric Band.
My father sent me money and I spent it pretty fast On a girl I met in Berkley in a social
science classYes and we learned about her body but her mind we did not know
Until deep routed attitudes and morals began to show She wanted to get married even
though she never said And I knew her well enough by now to see inside her head
She'd settle for suburbia and a little patch of land So I gave her up for music and the Free
Electric Band. Oooh the Free Electric Band. shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.
