Mr. Brownstone

Appetite for Destruction
hard rock rock 80s classic rock Guns N Roses


"Brownstone" is a slang term for heroin "Mr. Brownstone": Slash relates that the song was written by him and Izzy Stradlin while they were at Izzy and his girlfriend Desi's apartment. He states that they were sitting around, complaining about being heroin addicts, when they started improvising lyrics and music . When they had the lyrics all together, they wrote it down on the back of a grocery bag and brought it to Axl. Slash says the lyrics describe a typical day in the life of Slash and Izzy. He also states that it was the first song the band wrote after getting signed by Geffen Records.

Mr. Brownstone - Guns N' Roses

I get up around seven
Get outta bed around nine
And I don't worry about nothin' no
Because worryin's a waste of my time

The show usually starts around seven
We go on stage around nine
Get on the bus about eleven
Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

[Guitar Solo]

Now I get up around whenever
I used to get up on time
But, that old man he's a real motherfucker
Gonna kick him on down the line

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I used to do a little
But the little wouldn't do it
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' to get a little better
Said a little better than before

We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone, no, no, no
He won't leave me alone

Oh, leave me alone

Stuck it in the middle
And I shot it in the middle
And it it drove me out of my mind
I should have known better
Said I wish I never met her
Said I, I leave it all behind
Yowsa!
