I hope you read this with the humor in which it was written. This is not a slam on Methodists and it is certainly not intended to make light of drug addiction. Nevertheless, feel free to cast stones my directions if you are so inclined…because everybody must get stoned.
Well, they’ll stone ya when you’re trying to be so good,
They’ll stone ya just a-like they said they would.
They’ll stone ya when you’re tryin’ to go home.
Then they’ll stone ya when you’re there all alone.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.
