Oh yes boys play it sweet for me I was sittin' in my basement I'd just rolled myself a taste of Somethin' green and gold and glorious to get me through the day When my friend yells through my transom grab your coat an' get your hat son There's a nut down on the corner a givin' dollar bills away But I sat around a bit and then I had another hit And then I rolled myself a bomber thought about my momma Looked around fooled around played around while and then I got stoned and I missed it I got stoned and I missed it I got stoned and it rolled right by I got stoned and I missed it I got stoned and I missed it I got stoned oh me oh my
It took seven months of urgin' just to get that local virgin With the sweet face up to my place to fool around a bit And next day she woke up rosy and she snuggled up so cozy But when she asked me how I liked it Lord it hurt me to admit I got stoned and I missed it
I ain't makin' no excuses for so many things I uses Just to brighten my relationships and sweeten up my day But when my earthly race is over and I'm ready for the clover And they ask me how my life has been I guess I have to say I was stoned and I missed it
