Let’s go get stoned

Het enige gepaste na zo’n verkiezingsdag. U verwacht de HITversie. Misschien spoedig – die is niet de originele en zelfs niet de tweede of derde etc. Officieel gaat het over drank en dronken worden.

Let’s go get stoned, let’s go get stoned
Let’s go get stoned, let’s go get stoned
When your baby won’t let you in
And you got a few pennies, gonna buy a bottle of gin
Just call your buddy on the telephone
And say: Let’s go get stoned

Let’s go get stoned, let’s go get stoned
When you work so hard all the day long
And every thing you do seems to go wrong
Just drop by my place on your way home
Let’s go get stoned

It ain’t no harm, you’re taking just a little taste
But don’t blow your cool and start messing up the place
It ain’t no harm just to take a little nip
But don’t you fall down and bust your lip
Let’s go get stoned, let’s go get stoned

If you feel like you want to fly
Just get a little high
And if you cannot get back your feet on the ground
to find that ground
I say we’re gonna get stoned
we’re gonna get amplified
we’re gonna get thrown up!
We’re gonna get stoned
