I get up around seven
Get outta bed around nine
And I don't worry about nothin' no
Because worryin's a waste of my time

The show usually starts around seven
We go on stage around nine
Get on the bus about eleven
Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

[Guitar Solo]

Now I get up around whenever
I used to get up on time
But, that old man he's a real motherfucker
Gonna kick him on down the line

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Stuck it in the middle
And I shot it in the middle
And it it drove me out of my mind
I should have known better
Said I wish I never met her
Said I, I leave it all behind
Yowsa!

    This is a song obviously dedicated to drugs, or even just having too much of something, addiction isn't necessarily restricted to drugs or food. Basically a song about leading a hedonistic lifestyle. Axl in an interview said the bassist izzy stradlin originally came up with the term 'mr. Brownstone' as an euphemism for heroine, but it can be applied to anything.
