Story behind the song
Back in the 70's, I saw Cheech and Chong's "Up in Smoke" movie the night before. I had one of the most realistic nightmares I have ever had. I woke up with tears in my eyes, cause it was so real. The scenes were so fresh in my mind, it took no time to write the lyrics as it happened. In 2004, I finally recorded it, and I thought it would be fun to put it up now. I hope you like it.
Lyrics
The Party Evan Paul Kozaris Well all my friends have gathered ‘round, Seems our parties are talk of the town, Word got around that we’ve got some smoke, And all our parties are ‘One Big Toke’, Well people were dancing and having a ball, Listening to Funky Rock ‘n Roll, Something came over me that night, Kept me on edge, kind of uptight, Someone said, “hey, I hear a knocking at the door”, I began to pick up all the roaches from the floor, A voice was heard saying, “Open Up Police”, And they walked right in, ‘fore I could hide the keys< Fortunately, it was only Stanley, It was only a joke, Yea it was only Stanley, Said Stanley, “hi there fellas, I’m sorry I scared you(s) like that, You see…I didn’t say… Open Up Police…, I only said….Open up Please….", Well everyone knows Stanley’s a friend, When one has a message, they know who to send, Nevertheless, he’s the life of the Party, And he makes us laugh and he makes us hearty. Well people were dancing and having a ball, Listening to Funk and Rock ‘n Roll, But something came over me that night, It kept me on edge, kind of uptight, Someone said, “hey, I hear a knocking at the door”, I began to pick up all the roaches from the floor, A voice was heard saying, “Open Up Police”, And they broke the door, ‘fore I could hide the keys, Unfortunately, this time they were for real, I wonder, who was that dirty rotten rat that squealed?, I said, “Ocifer, I’m innocent, You see, I don’t even smoke cigarettes, What? That! That ain’t mine, Where are you taking me?, Let go of me”, Well they took me away, and they locked me in jail, They took my freedom without any bail, They went away, to write their report, And next thing I know, I’m standing in court, The judge looked over with death eyes at me, Looked at the evidence item #3, Said, “I think we’ll make an example out of him, Bring me a rope, this boy gonna hang”, I said…..”Nooooooooooooooooo………” Just as my, alarm rang? You mean, it was only a dream? It never happened? Ummmm? I’m free….it never happened, It was only a dream…..it never happened.
