Song # 2 Incense and Peppermints

For the March 2 gig, our second song will be "Incense and Peppermints." To my surprise and yours, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, endures. According to my extensive research (on their web site) their last gig was on Jan. 23, 2011: The Actors Gang Theater in Culver City, Calif.

The song is a dark, reflection on the times, that being the mid to late 60s.

Good sense, innocence, cripplin'  mankind.

Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view


And of course, 

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin' to lose.
Incense and peppermints
Incense and peppermints
Sha la la
Sha la la
Sha la la
Sha la la
Sha la la
Sha la la
Then...
 Now...
 Sha La La!

Enjoy the original...
