Some men need some killer weed
Some men need cocaine
Some men need some cactus juice to purify the brain
Some men need two woman
Some need alcohol
Everybody needs a little something but Lord I need it all
To get my rocks off
I get my rocks off
Get my rocks off a mountain and roll ’em on down the hill

I may do you one time and I may do you more
I may turn you into something, that, that you ain’t ready for
I might want your body and I might want your bread
I might want your momma to come visit me instead
And get my rocks off
Here they come
I get my rocks off, oh
Get my rocks off a mountain and roll ’em on down the hill

Got ta
Got ta
Uh
Got ta
Ah

Sometime I dream of chicks to bring me ever lasting joy
Sometime I dream of animals
Sometime I dream of boys
Sometime I kill the living
Sometime I raise the dead
Sometime I say just screw it all and crawl back into bed
And get my rocks off
Get my rocks off
Get my rocks off
Here come
Get my rocks off a mountain and roll ’em on down the hill
