I can quit Let me finish what I got After all, this stuff Sure costs a lot Then I'll get my feet Back on the ground I can't tell nobody How to live their life Even though inside We're all the same All those things are toys I was playing with You know we're all losers In that game Now since I've been straight I haven't been in my cups I'm not shooting downs I'm not using ups You know I'm still As crazy as a loon Even though I don't run out And cop a spoon But thank the good lord God, I had enough Now, I got a friend His name is Richard Grands He says you don't need To be stoned to grow a friend Believe me You're all beautiful people Just the way you are Tell me, what has that Stuff done for you so far, yeah I've been sitting here thinking Been winking, I been blinking I don't have to sit around No more and nod I can do anything That I wanna do I do it straight I do it so much better too And it's, it's gotta start Right in your own backyard I said it's gotta start Right in your own backyard You know everybody has Their own beautiful backyard You might have oil wells In your own back yard Yeah, your own backyard...
