Lyrics[edit]

    Some men need some killer weed, some men need cocaine
    Some men need some cactus juice, to purify the brain
    Some men need two women, some need alcohol
    Everybody needs a little something, but Lord I need it all
    
    To get my rocks off, get my rocks off
    Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down
    
    I may do you one time, and I may do you more
    I may turn you into something, that you ain't ready for
    I might want your body, and I might want your bread
    I might want your momma to come visit me instead
    
    And get my rocks off, get my rocks off
    Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down
    
    Sometimes I dream of chicks, to bring me ever lasting joys
    Sometimes I dream of animals, sometimes I dream of boys
    Sometimes I kill the living, sometimes I raise the dead
    Sometimes I say just fuck it all, and crawl back into bed
    
    And get my rocks off, get my rocks off
    Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down
