Lyrics ©1972 by Robert Davidson & CP Roth

You’ve been smokin my dope for an awful long time
You’re dead on your ass and your brain cells are dying
Walking in the hallway, you stumble and fall
You went through the plaster, made a hole in the wall

And it’s easy when you get this high
Tomorrow morning you’ll want to die
You just dream, why don’t you try?

Nobody misses you here or at home
Your mission in life seems forever to roam
You’ll grow up real plastic and become an unknown
You’ll either get married or forever be stoned
And though you may like it, you’ll have no choice
No one will want to hear your voice
It says nothing now, it only annoys

You’ve been kissed by the wind and blessed by the sun
Your mission here is never done
A gift to the world so the others get by
Breaking their ass for what money can buy
For what money can buy.
