"Greatest Hits" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....
Wake up in the morning and it's hard to live
Hard to live, yes, it's hard to live
And it will be a long time before shit starts to give
And every single day it's getting harder to give
But God would be up for being down with a ho
Lord knows that I got fuckin' mic control
Do you got the mic control?
You notice your style is well original

This man, makin' money
How I know
It wont be no man of me
In my bed I watch TV
I'm drunk by noon
But that's ok
I'll be president someday
Light my cigarette and
I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
Load the box and then pump that shit
Got my greatest hits
Got my greatest hits

Is this band, makin' money? I don't know
The writing on the wall
All my friends drink alcohol
I'm too drunk to light the bong
I'm too stoned to write this song
Light my cigarette and
I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
Load the box and then pump that shit
Got my greatest hits

Wake up in the morning and it's hard to live
Hard to live, hard to live
It's hard to live and it will be a long time
Before shit starts to give
And every single day it's getting harder to give
But God would be up for being down with a ho
Lord knows that I got fuckin' mic control
Do you got mic control?
You notice your style is well original

This man, makin' money, how I know
It won't be no man of me
In my bed I watch TV I'm drunk by noon
But that's OK I'll be president someday
Light my cigarette and
I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
Load the box and then pump that shit
It's the Ziggens greatest hit
It's the Ziggens greatest hit
It's the Ziggens his great-est hit

    General CommentThis is an excellent song...despite its upbeat rhythm and raw sound, it reflects Brad's addictions and how the daily pressures of life influenced him. "Load the box and I'll pump that shit" actually refers to shooting up...not playing tunes. Brad's poetry...sheer genius!!

    General CommentThe Ziggens were a band that got big under the same label as Sublime, I believe. This was a bit of a tribute. All sublime depresses me...but, I love it.

    General CommentThe Ziggens were around before Sublime, Miguel was actually in the Ziggens before he was in Sublime. In fact the first two albums that Miguel put out under the Skunk label were The Ziggens and Sublime.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the 90s and days where you are just being lazy and realize that all the things in your life can wait for you sometimes.

    General CommentGreat song, it's so perfect. YOu can totally dance to this song no matter where you are; at the beach, in the car, or even in your room. This song pretty much discribes Brad in a nutshell. Only... SPELLING! You spell cigarette like two or three differnt ways. Hehe.
