Everybody wants to buy a one-way ticket to paradise. Everybody's had enough of too much work and self sacrifice. They wanna get higher, They wanna get ... Everybody wants to take a tiny pill they call happiness. They'd eat 'em by the dozen and they'd never even think about side effects. They wanna get higher, They wanna get high! They just wanna get high. I would never try to tell you I'm any better than all the rest, I'm looking for a panacea, so far nothing can pass the test. I wanna get higher I wanna get high I just wanna get high Somedays, you just wanna get high I wanna get, You wanna get, They wanna get (higher) He wants to get, She wants to get, They all wanna get high! We wanna get- Yeah, we need to get- We just better get one thing straight There are no easy answers for all of us But when they discover one I'll tell you I'll be the first on that bus! I wanna get higher, I wanna get- I gotta get higher And I'm gonna get high! I just wanna get high, Somedays you just wanna get high. Well these days We just wanna get high! And always wanna kiss all our cares bye-bye, Bye-bye! I wanna get, You wanna get, They wanna get (higher) He wants to get, She wants to get, We're all gonna get High!
