  • And some man live his life
    For profits alone
    That very same man
    He lives his life all alone

    And the road to life
    Yes, it goes up and down
    Doesn't really matter
    As long as the music goes on

    Hey, Mister Collie Man
    Why don't you come 'round no more?
    Hey, Mister Collie, Collie Man
    Don't you hear me troubled call?

    Hey, Mister Collie Man
    Look I didn't come to disturb
    You best not be come ?round here
    Unless you've got me sensi herb

    I never needed any
    Reason for me to say
    Through all those troubled times
    Yes, me love you any way

    And the roughest path
    You know the rocky, rocky road
    You know that life and love
    Is a heavy, heavy load

    Hey, Mister Collie Man
    Why don't you come ?round no more?
    Hey, Mister Collie, Collie Man
    Don't you hear me troubled call?

    But, Mister Collie Man
    Look I didn't come to disturb
    You best not be come 'round here
    Unless you've got me sensi herb
    You best not be come 'round here
    Unless you've got me sensi herb

  • Garrett from Pittsburgh, PaI found this song too by accident, never haerd of these guys before but I loved their sound.
  • Jessica from Cherry Hill, NjI think the song that Meaghan is referring to is Closer to the Sun great tune
  • Emily from Oklahoma City, OkSlightly Stoopid is the equivalent of KMK except no rap and it's ten times better.
  • Meaghan from Breckenridge, CoSlightly Stoopid's a sweet band. Just wondering if anyone might know . . . what song does Slightly Stoopid sample on their song "everything you need"? I remember hearing the melody on a sweet surf video (i swear it wasn't them) that didn't belong to me so i didn't get a chance to find out.
