    It took seven months of urgin'
    to get the local virgin
    with the sweet face up to my place
    to fool around a bit.

    Next day she woke up rosy,
    and she cuddled up real cozy,
    but when she asked me how I liked it,
    Lord, it hurt me to admit...

    I was stoned and I missed it,
    I was stoned and I missed it,
    I was stoned, and it rolled right by,
    I was stoned and I missed it,
    I was stoned and I missed it, oh me, oh my.

    Well, sorta. It was written by Shel Silverstein, who wrote a number of songs for them (probably pushing a majority of their recorded output), including "Cover of the Rolling Stone" and"Sylvia's Mother", and he also wrote "A Boy Named Sue" for Johnny Cash. Really interesting guy. He was a poet, cartoonist, singer-songwriter, playwright, TV producer. He landed any number of articles, cartoons, and poems in Playboy magazine, and was a regular at the Playboy Mansion. As "Uncle Shelby", he wrote beloved children's fiction, to include "The Giving Tree" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends".

    If you want a taste, track down Shel's album "Freakin at the Freaker's Ball", which is a Dr. Hook Album in all but name. He sings lead on it. "I Got Stoned and I Missed It" is on it, the title tune is a hoot, and it also includes the immortal "Don't Give a Dose to the One You Love Most".

    "Freaker's Ball"

    Well there's gonna be a freakers ball
    Tonight at the freakers hall
    And you know, you're invited one and all

    Come on babies grease your lips
    Grab your hats and swing your hips
    Don't forget to bring your whips
    We're going to the freakers ball

    Blow your whistle and bang your gong
    Roll up something to take along
    It feels so good it must be wrong
    We're freakin at the freakers ball

    Where all the fags and the dykes they're boogyin' together
    The leather freaks are dressed in all kinds of leather
    The greatest of the sadists and the masochists too
    Screaming "Please hit me, and I'll hit you"

    The FBI are dancing with the junkies
    All the straights, are swinging with the funkies
    Across the floor and up the wall
    We're freakin at the freakers ball
    Yall, we're freakin at the freakers ball

    Everybody's kissing each other
    Brother with sister, son with mother
    Smear my body up with butter
    Take me to the freakers ball

    Pass that roach please and pour the wine
    I'll kiss yours if you'll kiss mine
    I'm gonna boogie till i go blind
    We're freakin at the freakers ball

    White ones, black ones, yellow ones, red ones
    Necrophiliacs looking for dead ones
    The greatest of the sadist and the masochists too
    Screaming "Please hit me, and I'll hit you"

    Everybody's fallin' in batches
    Pyromaniacs striking matches
    I'm gonna itch me where it scratches
    Freaking at the freakers ball

    Are there any more fascinating people in our pop culture history than Shel Silverstein and Kris Kristofferson? Always wished I could be one of them.
