a punk rocker with flowers in my hair"

"77 and 69 blah, blah"

Just heard this drivel on the radio.

No idea what it's called or who it's by, but what on earth is it about?

Punk rockers (Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious, etc)with flowers in their hair???

77 and 69??? What has 1969 (I assume) got to do with the punk era, which was circa 1976 - 1978?

Could someone please enlighten me before I throw the radio out of the window.

It is No1 and by sandi Thom. The lyrics are ironic transposing the hippie era with the punk era.click here_(With_Flowers_In_My_Hair) if you read the lyrics you may find that she is not quite as daft as you think......and has just trousered the best part of half a million in 3 weeks.

Thanks for that.

Obviously, being a (very) Grumpy Old Man I completely missed the irony!

Jackoms, if you`re anything like me( old and no hair) you wouldn`t have anywhere to put the flowers.

Bike, Pink Floyd. Written by Syd Barret.

I've got a bike
You can ride it if you like
It's got a basket
A bell that rings
And things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could
But I borrowed it

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything
Everything if you want things

I've got a cloak
It's a bit of a joke
There's a tear up the front
It's red and black
I've had it for months
If you think it could look good
Then I guess it should

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything
Everything if you want things

I know a mouse
And he hasn't got a house
I don't know why
I call him Gerald
He's getting rather old
But he's a good mouse

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything
Everything if you want things

I've got a clan of gingerbread men
Here a man
There a man
Lots of gingerbread men
Take a couple if you wish
They're on the dish

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything
Everything if you want things

I know a room full of musical tunes
Some rhyme
Some ching
Most of them are clockwork
Let's go into the other room and make them work

The best off all this is her meteoric rise to fame. First broadcast on the web from her basement (or other room in her own house) 100 hits, night 2 several hundred hits, by the end of the week it ran into thousands. So the story goes. All from her humble desktop.

Like to know who her ISP was with amount of bandwith.
