Out on the road for the first time. A virgin running to the sun.
Thinkin' 'bout my folks in a world so far from mine,
Worrying about the eldest son.
And they're asking me, "How will you survive boy?"
And i say that I'll get by.
And they say to me, "Don't forget to write boy."
And I say, "When i have the time you know I'll try."
'cause I'm a loner. I'm a loner. I'm a loner.
Won't you please leave me alone.

As time went by I finally had a chance to visit. I almost
wished i hadn't come
When we sat down to eat the questions started coming.
Interrogation had begun.
They started asking me, "Where'd you get that tan boy?"
And I say, "Out on the beaches of life."
And they say to me, "Why don't you get hitched boy?"
And I say, " The last thing I need is a wife."
And they say to me, "You better go to school boy."

And I say, "When it's my time I'll know."
And they're asking me, "What if you get drafted?"
And I say, "If that's the case, then I won't go!"
'cause I'm a loner. I'm a loner. I'm a loner.
Won't you please leave me alone.
And they say to me, "You don't need three dogs boy."

And I say we all need a friend.
And they're asking me, "Don't they give you hard times?"
And I say, " Yeah, but they'll be ther in the end."
And they're asking me, "Who you look like Jesus?"
And i say, "It ain't because I try."
But when they're asking me, " How much do you party?"
I say, "I just like to get high, and high, and high, and higher!"
'cause I'm a loner. I'm a loner.
And i'm a stoner. Won't you please leave me alone?

    General CommentI can relate to this song because my parents are always bothering me about similar crap. Often times I also wish that I could just be away from them for good. The questions and the bothersome comments from them get to be soooo annoying. I can relate to ya man.

    General CommentI too, can relate to the song and Jaimee K as far as having what I can only classify as a 'wandering soul' and relentless parents. In this song, I think that Katz is simply telling a story of a chapter in his life. Not to mention his message is accentuated so well by Steve Sweney's sick melodies. If you haven't seen Hookah live, it is important that you do; even after 15 years of near non-stop touring, they still produce consistently amazing live shows.
