Your Own Backyard

Dion And The Belmonts

Born To Be With You


I've been sitting here, thinking
About when I started in drinking
I went on to dope
It surely did change my life

I cried a tear in a beer for me
I lost everything near and dear to me
Namely my children and my wife

My idea of having a good time
Was sitting with my head between my knees
I knew everything there was to know
Everything except which way to go
I cried, oh, God, take me will you, please

Many a time I swore up and down
I didn't need any of this junk
that was going round
I can quit; let me finish what I got
After all, this stuff sure costs a lot
Then I'll get my feet back on the ground

I can't tell nobody how to live their life
Even though inside we're all the same
All those things are toys I was playing with
You know we're all losers in that game
yeah, yeah, yeah

Now since I've been straight
I haven't been in my cups
I'm not shooting downs, I'm not using ups
You know I'm still as crazy as a loon
Even though I don't run out and cop a spoon
But thank the good lord, God, I had enough
(Had enough)

Now, I got a friend
his name is Richard Grands
He says you don't need to be stoned
to grow a friend
Believe me you're all beautiful people
just the way you are
Tell me, what has that stuff
done for you so far, yeah

I've been sitting here thinking
Been winking, I been blinking
I don't have to sit around no more and nod
With my nose in the eggs, you know

I can do anything that I wanna do
I do it straight I do it so much better too
And it's, it's gotta start
right in your own backyard

I said it's gotta start right
in your own backyard
You know everybody
has their own beautiful backyard
You might have oil wells
in your own back yard
Yeah, your own backyard
