I don't know who l am
But you know life is for learning We are stardust We are golden And we've got to get ourselves Back to the garden 
By the time we got to Woodstock We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration And I dreamed I saw the bombers Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies Above our nation We are stardust Billion year old carbon We are golden Caught in the devil's bargain And we've got to get ourselves Back to the garden
