Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
Car door slams & out jumps Cocoa 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 & flowers

Hot sweaty light paints a picture red & gold
On their just turned 18-year-old bodies super bold
They scream & 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 & flowers, uh

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

No confusion, no tears
No enemies, no fear
No sorrow, no pain
No ball & no chain
Sex is not love & 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 {repeat}

Love the 1 who is love
The 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything
Elephants & flowers
The 1 who will listen when all others will not
There will B peace 4 those who love God a lot
Elephants & flowers
Elephants & 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
