  • Let's go get stoned
    Let's go get stoned

    When your baby won't let you in
    Got a few pennies, a bottle of gin
    Just call your buddy on the telephone

    Let's go get stoned
    Let's go get stoned
    Let's go get stoned

    When you work so hard all the day long
    And everything you do seems to go wrong
    Just drop by my place on your way home
    Let's go get stoned

    It ain't no harm
    You're takin just a taste
    But don't blow your cool
    And start messing up the place

    It ain't no harm you're faking just a nip
    But make sure you don't fall down bust your lip

    Let's go get stoned
