Norwegian
Det føles ennå som det var i går
Da alle sang: “Make love, not war”
Og hele verden hadde lengre hår
Det føles som det var i går

Da det å være bror og søster var in
California dreamin’
De store spørsmål og et åpent sinn
Svarene was blowin’ in the wind, oh…

Kjærlighetstid i San Francisco
Drømmen om fred, en ungdoms vår
Ingen gevær, no war, no disco
Kun vakre blomster i ditt hår

Da alle surfet på en god vibrasjon
Og USA fikk sin man on the moon
Og Jimi Hendrix spilte ild og pasjon
I Woodstock for en ny generasjon, yeah

Da var det sterkt å være ung og fri
Livet hadde bedre tid
Og hele verden hadde lengre hår
Det føles som det var i går, yeah yeah

Kjærlighetstid i San Francisco
Drømmen om fred, en ungdoms vår
Ooh yeah… ingen gevær, no war, no disco
Kun vakre blomster i ditt hår

Over jorden lød Lennons sang:
“Love, love, love”
Med bud om at kjærlighet gjør alle fri
Om vi ikke lar den fare forbi

Kjærlighetstid i San Fran…
Kjærlighetstid i San Francisco
Drømmen om fred, en ungdoms vår
Ooh yeah… ingen gevær, no war, no disco
Kun vakre blomster i ditt…

Kun vakre blomster i ditt hår
Oh yeah

Translation
It still feels like yesterday
When everyone was singing: “Make love, not war”
And the world had longer hair
It feels like yesterday

Being brothers and sisters was in
California dreamin’
Important questions and an open mind
The answers was blowin’ in the wind, oh…

Time for love in San Francisco
A dream of peace, a spring of youth
No guns, no war, no disco
Just lovely flowers in your hair

When everybody surfed on a good vibration
USA got their man on the moon
Jimi Hendrix played fire and passion
At Woodstock for a new generation, yeah

Then there was a strong feeling to be young and free
Life had plenty of time
And the whole world had longer hair
It feels like yesterday, yeah yeah

Ttime for love in San Francisco
A dream of peace, a spring of youth
Ooh yeah… no guns, no war, no disco
Just lovely flowers in your hair

All over the earth Lennon’s song was heard:
“Love, love, love”
With the message that love sets everyone free
If we don’t let it pass us by

Time for love in San Fran…
Time for love in San Francisco
A dream of peace, a spring of youth
Ooh yeah… no guns, no war, no disco
Just lovely flowers in your…

Just lovely flowers in you hair
Oh yeah
