I sat round all day I used to get stoned I liked to get wasted But these days I don't 'Cause I'm happy with you I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah
I walked around angry I used to feel bad But nowadays my days Don't have to be sad 'Cause I'm happy, with you I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah
Like, hear the high clear robin sing Walk a bluebell carpet Watch the children playing games Catch a moon and then drop it Hear the gentle mantle roll On a frosty morning See the mighty ocean break Like a sailor's warning
I used to drink too much Forgot to come home I lied to my doctor But these days I don't 'Cause I'm happy with you I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah
Throw a pocketful of coins in the Trevi fountain See an ice cold running stream Rushing down the mountain Hear a new born baby lamb Calling for its mother Watching reunited friends Loving one another
I sat round all day I liked to get stoned I used to get wasted But these days I don't 'Cause I'm happy with you I got lots of good things to do, ooh yeah
Happy with you I'm happy with you Happy with you

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
The UK band The Lightning Seeds of "Pure" fame got their name from a misheard line in Prince's "Raspberry Beret," mistaking "thunder drowns out what the lightning sees" for "thunder drowns out the lightning seeds."
