Oh, looking like another Bob Marley day
Hitting from the bong like a diesel train
And now we're hanging out this afternoon

We got weeds in the backyard, four feet tall
Cheech and Chong probably would have smoked them all
So, I'm on the couch this afternoon

Beer bottles laying on the kitchen floor
If we take them out back, we can buy some more
So I doubt we're going out this afternoon, oh

Better hang on if you're tagging along
'Cause we'll be doing this till six in the morning
Nothing wrong with going all night long
Time to put the brakes on, doesn't matter when you gotta

Get up and go out, me and all my friends
Drink up, fall down, we'll do it all again
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon

Landlord says I should buy a tent
But he can kiss my ass 'cause I paid the rent
So I doubt, he'll kick me out this afternoon

Down on the corner in a seedy bar
Jukebox cranking out the CCR
Had a few to Suzie Q this afternoon, oh

Better hang on if you're tagging along
'Cause we'll be doing this till six in the morning
Nothing wrong with going all night long
Time to put the brakes on, doesn't matter when you gotta

Get up and go out, me and all my friends
Drink up, fall down, we'll do it all again
Get up, go out, me and all my friends
Drink up, fall down, we'll do it all again, yeah
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon

Wear a wristwatch and alarm clock to see what time it ends
From the moment I wake up, I just love being with my friends
We barely get by, but have the best times and hope it never ends
We drink all day until we fall down, so we can do it all again

It's not a human walk, it's the human race
If we were living on the edge, taking too much space
So I'll doubt I'll figure out just what to do
But to kicking around, hanging out this afternoon, oh

Better hang on if you're tagging along
'Cause we'll be doing this till six in the morning
Nothing wrong with going all night long
Time to put the brakes on, doesn't matter when you gotta

Get up and go out, me and all my friends
Drink up and fall down, we'll do it all again, yeah
Get up and go out, me and all my friends
Drink up and fall down, we'll do it all again

Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon

Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon
Just sitting around, hanging out this afternoon

    Why do you put lyrics up that are wrong then not fix them when we submit the right lyrics?
    I corrected this twice now but it isnt fixed. Im gonna try again so if you dont know the lyrics and are too lazy to allow the changes than don't post please. Real musicians like myself want real lyrics and when we help by correcting them for other musicians we expect you to fix what we fix.
