Well I was sittin' on the porch with Mel and Web
Kickin' back pullin' tubes courtesy of Jeb
When Smootie rang up and he dropped a dime
We're at the Django house and the waves are fine

Dan came back with an ol' lap steel
When he puts it in his hands he's got to be real
If you come around the corner don't forget to turn
And bring a little fire we got somethin' to burn

I got around the corner, I was half way there
When I met Ted Moore and of course John Hare
They had just got a sack weighing 3.5
It was 4:19, just about that time

So we took a detour to 6703
The house they occupy oceanside D.P.
Got up stairs and locked the door
Jerry and the Dead on the video

They pulled out the binger and I started to drool
It was the 5 foot caustic weapon crystal tool
I caught the fumes and I lost my mind
Happens every time that I smoke the kind, but...

I never learn but I don' mind, I'm just wastin' time

I went to the beach and I picked up a rock
I threw it in the ocean and the waves then
Caught it and dropped it back into the sea
So then I walked away and I let it be

Cause it had been lying there for a million days
Before I picked it up and threw it away
I left the shore, went to the liquor store
Saw crazy Bruce, he was waiting for

Someone to buy him some fine malt liquor
When he gets it in his system he's a real shitkicker
He'll play you a song if you've got the time
And even if you don't, he's liable to try

So I left him there, and went into S.O.S.
Bought myself a bottle of the black cisco death
Drank it down while watching Dave's band
Somebody stuck a doob in my hand

So I took a hit and I passed it on
I woke up on the pavement not before too long
I never learn but I don't mind
But sometimes it takes a couple of tries, but...

    General CommentThis song is clearly about the gonj, such a great song. From beginning to end, getting high with friends, the buying booze for a homeless guy on the street, drinking a ton and waking up on the pavement. The last line though is "I never learn but that's alright, cause sometimes it takes a couple of tries, but..."
