The Lyrics

i saw the dead today...oh boy
but i just can't recall the songs they played
it must have been the drugs i had
cause all i did was laugh
i thought i saw giraffes
my drug-filled mind felt so bizarre
began to notice that i felt deranged
this crowd of people came prepared
they'd seen this band before
everyone behaved absurd cause they were all on drugs, galore

i had some fun today...oh boy
when it was over, i was up for more
the band came on, then went away
but still my fanny shook
cause my brains were cooked

i must be...still...turned...on

i'm up...too wired for bed
cause there's fireworks in my head
got to find some way to sober up
took too much...i wish that i was straight
saw some ghosts and several bats
they all flew around my flat
am i mad, upstairs ?...its hard to cope
"I'm givin' up dope", is what i begin to scream

ah ah ah ah...ahh ahh ahh..ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah...ahh ahh ahh..ah ah ah

i felt confused today...oh boy
four thousand brains cells have burned up, i fear
and though the dose was rather small
i want to climb the walls
now i know how alice musta felt when she was ten feet tall

i must be...still...turned...on

Alvin - The title musta kept me off this at first...a little morbid even for ME...but eventually I had to check it out 'cuz I like your stuff...lampooning (or even harpooning) Grateful Dead fans/concerts is surely a "Dead-Center" target. 5-5-5

thanks, paul....i can't believe i typed in the wrong title...i wanted to grab any passing deadhead and totally screwed up...oh well, that's what us deadheads do best....what do deadheads do worst?....2 things.....standing in a straight line and clapping in rhythm...must have something to do with the altered workings of the mind ?
