Have a whiskey, man

by Ryan Nardi

Have a whiskey, man,
and cool out partner.
Ain't you never smoked
no reefer before?

Ain't you never felt like
the music was water
and you were moving
through the water of the music?

Ain't you never stayed up
way past your bedtime?
Ain't you never snuck out
and went to school to sleep?

Me, I got a handle on my problem
or some of em.
Me, I got a soul
and sacrifice wine.

Me, I ain't never had
nothing to do with
no no-account nobody's
thumbing their nose.

Just settle down, buster,
and pour me another one,
pour us two other ones,
It's good and late.

We ain't got nowhere
we're going but dreamland,
so sip on a whiskey
and chill out a while.

Never go into smoking anything much but a pipe and the occasional cigar. How ever, you can keep on pouring the whiskey all night. Unless, your British where whiskey is scotch. Its been a while since I started and didn't know enough to stop. But it never really took the pain away.
