The Lyrics

LOTR reference coming up. Dude.
Got a call from an old friend, he lived in the White House.
Said he couldn't inhale that American jay.
Told him, "Bill, just relax, limit's up on the statute.
And you see Rush, it's him that's using drugs today!"

I don't need you to worry for me, 'cause I'm all right.
I don't want you to think that I'm smoking a bone.
I don't care what you say, I'm not into the high life.
Go ahead if you want to, I got no jones!

Never said you had to consider me "Ganjaman."
Never said I was a Grateful Dead or Bob Marley fan.
Don't smoke the bong.
Don't get me wrong.
You know I do not play
in the... N... B.... A!

They will tell you that cigarettes are not addictive.
Then they'll tell you that you should not pick up a bong.
And Syncronos thinks hobbits smoke pot just like humans.
So I guess all along "The Two Towers," they were Cheech and Chong!

I don't need you to worry for me, 'cause I'm all right.
I don't want you to think that I'm smoking a bone.
I don't care what you say, I'm not into the high life.
Go ahead if you want to, I got no jones!

Never said I was the kind of guy who's smoking grass.
Never said I played no instruments, can't play no jazz.
Don't smoke the bong.
Don't get me wrong.
I'm enough insane
without Mary Jane!

I don't care what you say, I'm not into the high life.
Go ahead if you want to, I got no jones!
(Keep it to yourself, the high life!)
(Keep it to yourself, the high life!)
(Keep it to yourself, the high life!)
(repeat 'til fade)

And so it was, that later,
Drinking Miller Lite alone,
Pacholek revealed to us that
He would ne-ver...smoke a bo-o-one

I was just randoming around, Mister Pacholek, and happened upon this unappreciated gem. I always love an excellent Billy Joel piece...so have some 5s on me.

It's a good thing you threw in the LOTR stuff, though...or I would have given it 1s...; )
