Rollin' windows down kickback trollen
I'm holdin' and foldin' see no cold in the streets
dirty looks - huh - we think it's funny
the workin' class squares scrounge up all the money
but we're coolin' in the middle of June
I'm gettin' girls gettin' lit and I'm making up tunes
believe that boy I'll bet I'll bet I'm trollen
just lookin' for some trouble and we be rollin'

Now I'm a tell a tale to you straight, gonna tell you a story
it's not a fairy tale and it gets a little glory
it happened one night when Tequila was flowin
we were walkin' to my car, unaware unknowin'
I stepped up crossed the the street in no hurry
and what happens next it gets a little blurry
this chump nearly hits me in a green pinto
so I threw my bottle - bang - It broke his window
he screeched to a halt jumped out of his car
I stepped straight to him gonna make him see stars, yes
the situation was going to explode
thought I should give him a warning said ya better hit the road
I knew it would be easy if i tagged him first
so I cracked him in the face all of the sudden with a burst
I hit him with a right then a left didn't land
but he turned his head and I broke my hand

Whatcha gonna do?
do whatcha gonna

I got a cast on my hand and the girls think I'm a jerk
I can't play my bass and I can't go to work
this is a true story it all did happen
better yet I regret that moment of scrappin'
been two years now since this all took place
I learn from being stupid I learn from my mistakes
and now I'm livin' peace edifyin' and trollen
can't say it wasn't fun in those days of rollin'
rollin'
rollin'

    General Commenthah..i can't help but laugh when I hear "Rollin'". I love 311 so very much..but this song is pretty cheesey. It does have a good message, though...

    General Comment"Rollin" is kind of a lame song. I love 311 but, this song I think is supposed to be a song to learn from all their other songs are about peace and Unity and this was just a lesson for what happens when you're drunk and not down with the peace and unity.

    General CommentI think, and it may only be because I'm a big E-tard, or used to be anyways. It's about rolling on ecstasy, in a nutshell. Obviously, it's not very easy to see this. But when he's repeating rolling, it's something you would like to listen to while rolling. They are like saying, in the days when we used to roll. Because on a good song, I can't remember SA says, on ecstasy, uh, not next to me..BAM

    General CommentIt's obviously about X...he says trollen more than once. Anyway...he talks about how much fun he was having while rolling, but then he had tequilla, got drunk and got into a fight. The last verse he says:
    "I learn from being stupid I learn from my mistakes
    and now I'm livin' peace edifyin' and trollen"
    Alcohol is the most mindless stupid fucking drug...see what happened to Nick? He got violent on alcohol and bad stuff happened. Lesson learned. Now he lives peacefully trollen again ... I don't know why other drugs like X are illegal, they are so much better than alcohol. They open your mind instead of constricting it.
