Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
Car door slams and out jumps Coco n a dress so tight
The likeness of Jesus on her leather coat
She 2 smart 4 ecstasy, she 2 fast 4 coke
She takes the boy by the hand, the only thing he understands
Is that she wants him on the dance floor
Elephants and flowers

Hot sweaty light paints a picture red and gold
On their just turned 18-year-old bodies super bold
They scream and dance 4 12 hours 2 the new power soul (New power)
No sex, no drugs, no devil here, just good ol' rock 'n' roll
Uh
Elephants and flowers, uh

Love the 1 who is love, the 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything, elephants and flowers
The 1 who will listen when all others will not
There will b peace 4 those who love God a lot
Elephants and flowers (Oh)
Elephants and flowers

No confusion, no tears
No enemies (no), no fear
No sorrow, no pain
No ball and no chain
Sex is not love and love is not sex
Putting words n other people's mouth won't get U elected
Oh
Don't kiss me, just talk 2 me
Don't kiss me, just talk 2 me

Love the 1 who is love, the 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything, elephants and flowers
The 1 who will listen when all others will not
There will b peace 4 those who love God a lot
Elephants and flowers
Elephants and flowers everybody
Whoa yeah

98 n the dark the DJ on the race car
He tried 2 put it n park but he wants 2 b the star
