"Because I Got High" is a comical novelty song by Afroman, from his album of the same name, about how cannabis use is degrading his quality of life. The song explains how the author has failed his college class, missed court dates, had his paycheck garnished due to missed child support payments, gambled away his car payment, is left masturbating after not having sex with his girlfriend, is paraplegic as the result of a police chase and is now homeless "because he got high". The song, which was released in 2001, reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 in the UK, and is Afroman's only US top 40 song. The song also gained popularity in other countries, such as Australia, where it was #1 for three weeks. This song appears on the soundtrack of (and is the theme song of) Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and the music video for it was directed by Kevin Smith and featured Jay and Silent Bob smoking.    Download this sheet!
