The Numbers Never Lie

Post by bags123 » Mon Sep 06, 2010 5:28 am

The Numbers Never Lie

Great thoughts always occur to me
when I get really high,
and when I'm straight I'll concentrate
on why this may apply

Fantastic, as it sounds at first,
on second, third, or home
Great thoughts always occur to me
When I get really stoned.

Great thoughts always occur to me
if I start burning hemp
When the work-a-day, long, liturgy
of timely calls are spent

Relaxing by the pool submersed,
while making my ascent
Great thoughts always occur to me
If I start burning hemp.

Great thoughts always occur to me
when I am pacified,
and when I'm stoned, I'm not alone
The numbers never lied.

I'd rather be with folks like me
than others who arn't fried
Great thoughts always occur to me
when I am pacified.

Great thoughts intrude as I settle down to sleep and I am too comfortable to pick up my pencil and pad

You have no excuse Heinz. All you need to remember when you go to the loo is a pen or a pencil. The papers already there. :mrgreen: :hello:

hahahahahaha! I always seem to have great thoughts when I have my daughter sleeping in my arms and she's sick - so everytime i go to put her down she screams and screams.
