Sixties Slang


Can you dig it? (from 50's beatnik)
crazy man! (beatnik)
you cats, you chicks (beatnik)
oughta sight!
far out, man!
groovy, groovin'
hip
cool
love-in
sit-in
peace!
love!
baby!
right on
for real, man
tell it to me straight
sock it to me
bummer
bum me out
what a drag
where it's at
get it together
get it on
I'm trippin'
what a trip
don't get fresh (flirt)
tell it like it is
back up and regroup
blows me away
what's happening
it's a happening thing
getting high
this is not my scene
psychedelic
jam up and jelly tight
down with racism
up with civil rights
doin my OWN thing
are you with it?
i have to be myself
got to be me
neat
get my drift?
big deal
my bag
a put-down
blow him off
are you with it?
That's where I'm coming from



Also: Valley girl, 80's slang

barf me out, gag me with a spoon
i'm sure
oh, like, totally awesome
what's the bottom line?
it's bitchin'
not my crowd
chill out
what a nerd
it's like...
