(Words/music by P.Mark)
Woke up this morning
And brushed my teeth with Ben Gay
Splashed down my half-shaved face with Listerine
Lost ten minutes in driveway cussing out Henry Ford
Trying to start the car with my front door key
Took out that corner patch of Mrs. Whatsername's roses
Dodging a devil squirrel that took me by surprise
The police kept askin',
How come your ran them red lights?
I said your honor, I'm still high
Last night I laid down my head
Demons dancing round the bed
Thought by morning they would surely be gone
But in the dawn's early light, much to my surprise
The party was still raging on
Down at work I sidled up to the front desk
Told the receptionist that I wanted her for so long
Then I made my way down to corner office
Told the boss his comb-over was sitting all wrong
Missed my appointments one and all til low and behold
I found my watch was telling upside-down time
The voice on the phone kept yelling,
Why ain't you where you're supposed to be?
I said excuse me, I'm still high
I met the duchess for dinner and diversion
Tucked the table cloth into my pants
I said I thought that's what we're doing
When she asked me if I wanted to dance
When I stood up to relieve my condition
Straight to the pavement the entrees did fly
She started crying,
Why can't we be happy like we used to?
I said I don't know about you, but I'm still high...
Why don’t you come up and see me sometime?
‘Cuz I’m here
And I’m still high
