Subject: Lyr Add: I GOT STONED AND I MISSED IT
I'm amazed noone has mentioned the classic masterpiece by Shel Silverstein and sung by Doctor Hook (with words maybe modified by my memory):

I was sittin' in my basement
I just rolled myself a taste
of something green and gold and glorious
To see me through the day
When a voice called through the transom
"Get your coat and grab your hat son,
There's a nut down on the corner
Givin' dollar bills away"

So I lay around a bit and I had another hit
And I rolled up a bomber and I thought about my momma
And I lay around and jacked around and fooled around and ooooh.....

Cho:
I got stoned and I missed it (x2)
I got stone and it rolled right by
I got stone and I missed it (x2)
I got stoned, oh me oh my!

Well it took six months of urgin'
Just to get that local virgin
With the sweet face up to my place
To fool around a bit
In the mornin' she was rosy
And she smuggled up so cosy
When she asked me how I'd liked it, well it hurt me to admit...

Chorus

I aint makin no excuses
For the many things I uses
Just to brighten my relationships
And see me through the day
But when my earthly race is over
And I'm ready for the clover
When they ask me how my life has been
I guess I'll have to say...

chorus (with "I was" instead of "I got")

Cheers
