Roll yer own.
Don't mean you got no money.
Only that you got no opportunity
To shake it with that friend of mine.
Roll yer own if you can't buy readymade;
You won't be satisfied when you feel
The sudden need to unwind.
You know what moves you in the wee hours
When there's nothing on the answerphone.
And if you don't get enough of
That electric love don't try to get by
Roll yer own,
Roll it when there's no-one listening:
When those re-runs play
On the late-night black and white TV.
Roll yer own,
Roll it when there's something missing
And those wild cats howl,
Running in the moonshine.

Roll yer own,
Roll it when there's something missing
And those wild cats howl,
Running in the moonshine.
Roll yer own if you can't buy readymade;
You won't be satisfied when you feel
The sudden need to unwind.

You know what moves you in the wee hours
When there's nothing on the answerphone.

Roll yer own: you got to hit that spot.
Roll yer own when your hands are hot.
Roll yer own.
Roll yer own.
Roll yer own.
