Lyrics

It's rare to see a sunrise when you drink and love all night

They say we're missing something in that first hour of light

A peace, a calm, when the day's begun

Thats what they say about our days

 

It's rare to be so happy when your wallet's so damn thin

They say we're spending too much on the night life we live

So save away, all that you make

That's what will pay for future days

 

But in the Sunshine City

We're so much richer than you all, us hippies

Because we're still so young and pretty

And we're living in the city of the sun

 

It's rare to have so many friends, beware don't get too close

Quality over quantity they say we can't have both

Two or three, is all you need

That's what they say about our ways

 

It's rare to have adventures, it's rare to have such fun

You'll be haunted by those pictures when you're trying to get a job

Predictable and safe is the path they said to take

But there's no way

  

Cause in the Sunshine City

We've got the love to go around, us hippies

Because we're still so young and pretty

And we're living in the city of the sun

 

Our love is yellow, we are hopeful

We are happy here and warm

We've got our tans and highlight hairs

From all the time we spend outdoors

And when a storm comes crashing

And it knocks us down to size

We will remember the sun will rise

It's rare to see a sunrise when you drink and love all night

They say we're missing something in that first hour of light

A peace, a calm, when the day's begun

Thats what they say about our days

 

But in the Sunshine City

We feel that all day long, us hippies

Because we're still so young and pretty

And we're living in the city of the sun
