  • Uh, uh, uh, uh
    Uh, uh

    Day and night (what, what)
    I toss and turn, I keep stressing my mind, mind (what, what)
    I look for peace but see I don't attain (what, what)
    What I need for keeps this silly game we play, play
    Now look at this (what, what)
    Madness, the magnet keeps attracting me, me (what, what)
    I try to run, but see, I'm not that fast (what, what)
    I think I'm first but surely finish last, last

    'Cause day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone through the day and night (day and night)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
    Day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone, some things will never change (never change)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)

    Hold the phone (what, what)
    The lonely stoner, Mr. Solo Dolo (what, what)
    He's on the move, can't seem to shake the shade (what, what)
    Within his dreams he see's the life he made, made
    The pain is deep (what, what)
    A silent sleeper you won't hear a peep, peep (what, what)
    The girl he wants don't seem to want him too (what, what)
    It seems the feelings that she had are through, through

    'Cause day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone through the day and night (day and night)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
    Day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone, some things will never change (yeah, never change)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind (yeah) at night
    (At, at, yeah, at night)

    Slow mo, (what, what)
    When the tempo slows up and creates that new, new (what, what)
    He seems alive though he is feeling blue (what, what)
    The sun is shining, man, he's super cool, cool
    The lonely nights (what, what)
    They fade away he slips into his white Nikes (what, what)
    He smokes a clip and then he's on the way (what, what)
    To free his mind in search of
    To free his mind in search of
    To free his mind in search of

    Day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone through the day and night (day and night)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night)
    Day and night (day and night)
    The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night (night)
    He's all alone, some things will never change (never change)
    The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night (at, at, at night, night)

    At, at, at night (night)

  • SebizzarThe Crookers remix was probably my most played song of 2009. It takes me back to my own "solo dolo" 16/17 year old self and how depressed I was. I found joy through House music and this was one of the first I was obsessed with. Nice to know the backstory to this song.

    I can't believe the music video producers let the video out knowing none of the artists involved or record label approved. No wonder it seemed so rushed and inappropriate. As for Tik tok... it's not surprising at this point. I wish I could go back to 2009.
