Marijuana Lyrics

Well once upon a time in 1776 Thomas Jefferson signed his name on a piece of marijuana, and this document was a symbol of freedom and of liberty, at least for the rich, white, gentry. And time marched along, this plant that I referred to has been used for everything from medicine to the American flag. And now it seems to me that somewhere along the way things got messed up, yeah, messed up, for marijuana.

A gift of God to my brothers and me. Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee.

Well some say a conspiracy, petro chemical and palm paper industries combined to kill the competition, government hysteria, monopoly, and conflict of interest, with total impunity. Yeah, so, if you don't buy the conspiracy, just look at the reality that your tax dollars go to spray poison on the fields of a farmer in South America. And as an added bonus, your neighbor might be the proud recipient of that poison weed.

Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee. Oh marijuana…a gift of God to my brothers and me. Oh marijuana…you can't legislate your own morality. Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee.

Free from madness, chronic sadness, what is the half-life of bad propaganda? The policies fail, denied bail, you made him a demon now pay for his trip to prison. Hard to promote the status quote, but what is the shelf life of bad legislation? The hypocrite smirks, it's a moral disgrace as he reads from the law that was written about the same time that he had his last original thoughts. Men said he was dying and the nausea and the pain left him wasting away and unable to keep a meal down. So he tried everything prescription could obtain but to no avail. The side effects were worse than the pain. So now he breaks the law to use the one thing that seems to help him out. But the people say, “Oh he's just gettin high.” Not to change the subject but, didn't you ever wonder why getting high's a crime. Yeah a crime.

Oh marijuana…a gift of God to my brothers and me. Oh marijuana…now the government wants to test me when I pee. Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee. Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee. Oh marijuana…the government wants to test me when I pee. Oh marijuana…(this is the part where everybody would sing along) when I pee.
