I ain't no prophet
I don't wanna cure no damn disease
But would you marry me anyway?
If I was on my knee?
I'm goin' through my time of change
In my time of need
In love love love
Whatever

And I thought to myself
I'm gonna marry into wealth
Gonna take everything that she's got up
And keep it for myself oh oh oh

She said to me
"I don't like what I see"
And I said to her
"I don't even know your name"
And she said to me
"I don't like what I see"
I said to her
"I don't even fuckin' care"

I ain't no prophet
Don't wanna cure no damn disease
Would you marry me anyway?
If I was on my knee?
I'm goin' through my time of change
In my time of need
What I want you got it
What I need is something that's not right

She said to me
"I don't like what I see"
And I said to her
"I don't even know your name"
And she said to me
"I don't like what I see"
I said to her
"I don't even fuckin' care"

    General CommentThis song IS DEFINITLY written by Slightly Stoopid and covered by Sublime. Yes, it was on SS Acoustic Roots CD in 2004, but it first appeared as a hidden track on "To a Party" on the cd "Slightly $toopid" which was released by Skunk records in 1996, but obviously everything was recorded earlier in 1995 before Brads passing. It also says in the CD jacket that the "not so secret track" was produced by Brad.

    General Commentthis is a cover of Slightly Stoopid, a band that was inspired by sublime and i think on their label too. wouldn't that be cool? to have your label band want to cover you.
