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 ready made
If 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 nothin' on the answer phone
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
Runnin' in the moonshine

Roll yer own if you can't buy ready made
(I said roll it)
If you won't be satisfied
When you feel the sudden need to unwind

Well, you know what moves you in the wee hours
When there's nothin' on the answer phone
And if you don't get enough of that electric love
Don't try to get by

Roll yer own, you got to hit that spot
(I said roll it)
Roll yer own but when your hands are hot
(I said roll it)

Roll yer own, roll yer own, roll yer own, roll yer own
