Lyrics- "FIRST HIT"
When I was just a boy, my mamma said to me, Keep your hands out of the fire getting burned gonna bring you misery Well I had to learn the hard way, and she smacked me cross the face But the pain didn't stay, no it didn't hurt a bit I had my first hit, The first hit of my life-
Do you remember school? They tried to throw me out Caught me with the goods, smoke curling out my mouth I cried my eyes out to the Dean, it was almost a good enough act At unlucky 13, man I just had to admit, it was my first hit First hit of my life-
Then I fell in love, sure enough tasted sweet We had it all together, This thing was sewn up neat Worked to give her my money, gave her everything I had Well for better or bad one day she just split. another first hit, first hit of my life-
