Mary Jane

I've got two good reasons for wanting to stay
There's Nancy at night and Debbie by day
They both say they'll keep my fire lit
But I'll give it to weeks before they're jumping in my shit
And I've got two good reasons to go
The first, I don't care-the second, I don't know
I like to spend my time sitting on the beach
With a real fine Georgia peach

I like to drink my drink, smoke my stuff
Nobody going to tell me when I’ve had enough
I don't give a damn about the rest
Mary Jane you're still the best

I've got a good job you know I can't complain
I don't sweat in the sun, I don't run in the rain
The boss man's wife, she likes the way I work
Without no shoes and without no shirt
And I've got no good reason to retire
But I'm wandering fool, not just a tool for hire
I like to spend my time sitting In the sun
With a plump tree-ripened plum

Now I don't care what the people say
Life is meant to be lived this way
So please don't ask me about what I do
I want to enjoy my time with you
But when it's up, I've still got two good reasons to go
First, I don't care-the second, I don't know
I like to spend my time sitting in the sand
With a cold beer in my hand
