"The Joker" as written by and Miles Grayson....
Some people call me the space cowboy yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause' I speak of the pompitous of love

People talk about me baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
But don't you worry baby don't worry
Cause' I'm right here at home

Cause' I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
Playin' my music in the sun
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a mid-night toker
I get my lovin' on the run
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Want to shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Ooh wee baby, I sure show you a good time

Cause' I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
Playin' my music in the sun
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a mid-night toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

People keep talkin' about me baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry mama
Cause' I'm right here at home
You're the cutest thing I ever did see
Really love your peaches want to shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Come on baby now, I'll show you a good time

    General Commenti think he's saying 'look at me. i'm all these awesome things. everyone wants me. so yeah, i have one night stands with lots of randos, but hey. you're mine and i'm yours. we're together. no one else can say that but you. so many people are jealous of you because you have me and they only get me once. so i'm going to keep cheating because people love me and you're just really grateful that YOU are my girlfriend/wife. so you put up with it. you know i'll always be coming back to you to sleep with for the night. we have that special bond' the end may have been a different thought i'm in too much of a hurry to proof read this
    ya?

    My Interpretationi dont this song has anything to do with sex. not gay or otherwise. clearly its about weed and millers love for it.
    weed comes with feelings of general relaxation and love for many things. "gangster of love."
    weed is just a plant. your not supposed to smoke it(is what people say) "say im doing you wrong"
    regardless of what people say or think based on retarded week comercials say, miller is faithfull to mary jane. (f***in A)

    im a joker. ever see a pothead in action? lol
    im a smoker. again, ever see a pothead in action?
    im a midnight toker. best time to smoke, imo
    i sure dont want to hurt no one. regardless of what the anti-weed comercials say, he dosent want to hurt a child because of weed.

    "Cause I'm a picker" pick the buds off the plant
    "I'm a grinner" if you like what youve picked
    "I'm a lover" if you LOVE what youve picked
    "And I'm a sinner" lots of people say potheads are sinners, with no proof, im a christian and i smoke daily.

    "I play my music in the sun" i mean come on, music goes hand in hand with smokin weed.

    the rest i believe, hes just singing a love song for weed, peaches is buds, shake your tree is branches that buds grow on.

    second to last verse he says dont worry momma. implies a female (like the female plants people smoke to get high) and not like another person with a penis.

    General CommentI think this is a song about some one who's simply content with there life. And they have a really relaxed personalilty. THey dont know where there going and honestly dont care either.

    General CommentTo me this song is about marijuana. The phrase "People talk about me baby, say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong" seems like something cannabis would say if it could talk. and "Don't worry baby, don't worry , 'cause I'm right here at home" is a reassuring thing it would say to let us know it's always going to be there to console. "... And I'm a sinner, I play my music in the sun" seems to let one know that even though it may be a "sin" to take part in illegal activities such as smoking marijuana, it's ok. And of course "I sure don't want to hurt no one" refers to the fact that peace is a very important thing.

    General Commenti really think that the song is about a chick that he's singing this too and not weed. i could be wrong but it's still a damn good song
