​Weed Instead of Roses

This song is by Ashley Monroe and appears on the album Like a Rose (2013).

Original video
Baby, we have been together for a long, long time
You get home from work and then we just turn out the lights
Lately, I've been dreamin': you in leather; me in lace
Let's put up the teddy bears, and get out the whips and chains

Give me weed instead of roses
Bring me whiskey 'stead of wine
Every puff, every shot, you're lookin' better all the time
I don't need a card from Hallmark
Box of candy, heaven knows
Give me weed instead of roses
And let's see where it goes

Honey, you don't have to worry
There ain't no one else for me
But lately we have fallen under the same routine
I ain't getting any younger, oh, but you don't seem to care
Let's trade in the boxers for some sexy underwear

Give me weed instead of roses
Get me whiskey 'stead of wine
Every puff, every shot, you're lookin' better all the time
I don't need a card from Hallmark
Box of candy, heaven knows
Give me weed instead of roses
And let's see where it goes

Let's send the kids to grandma
Call in sick to work
Put on some heavy metal
Rip the phone off of the hook
Go call your no-good brother
We both know what he's been growing
I'll be waiting with the whipped cream
And, baby, let's get going

Get me weed instead of roses
Give me whiskey 'stead of wine
Every puff, every shot, you're lookin' better all the time
I don't need a card from Hallmark
Box of candy, heaven knows
Give me weed instead of roses
And let's see where it goes

You pull out the Polaroid
And I'll strike a couple ṗoses
Let's get a little wild
Bring me weed instead of roses
