Where have the flowers gone sun-children
Your shirts are loud and your hair is long
Now do you ever think we'll make it
Something more than a uniform

And we're almost there
We learn to love and we learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair
In our hair

Where has the vision gone sun-children (sun-children)
Colours glow but your eyes are closed (oo-ooh)
I swear I still believe we'll make it (we'll make it)
In your eyes I see your soul

And we're almost there
And we learn to love and we learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away

And we learn to love and we learn to give
And we learn to love and we learn to give

I wish we had the hearts of children (of children)
Their eyes are wide and their love is pure
We only dare to say 'please love me'
At the seventh glass of wine

And we're almost there
And we learn to love and we learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away
Oo-oo-oo-oh
Oo-oo-oo-oh

And we're almost there
And we learn to love and we learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away


Live Version (1993 release)

This will cheer you up
This is Flowers In Our Hair.


Where have the flowers gone sun-children
Your shirts are loud and your hair is long
Now do you ever think we'll make it
Something more than a uniform

We're almost there
We learn to love, we learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair
In our hair

Where has the vision gone sun-children
Colours glow but your eyes are closed
But I swear I still believe we'll make it
In your eyes I see your soul

We're almost there
We learn to love, we learn to give
We earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away

We learn to love and we learn to give
We learn to love, learn to give

I wish we had the hearts of children
Their eyes are wide and their love is pure
We only dare to say 'please love me'
At the seventh glass of wine

We're almost there
We learn to love, learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away

We're almost there
We learn to love, learn to give
And we earn the flowers in our hair my friend
So take my hand
One day is always too far away
