The Lyrics

Better life through chemistry.
The old still looks the same as I put there maryjane
and the moonshine I learned to make with Ma and Papa -
I'll be percolating hooch and mary -
homegrown, home-stilled, green like Fairy
It's good to drink that green green glass of home
Yes, within a minute I'll be flying, arms reaching, sweetly smiling.
It's good to drink the green, green, glass of home.

I take my good old flagon as I pour on the Green Dragon
And my first sip is pretty shy, but I'll have a litre -
Down my throat there runs the hooch and mary
It is nice and warm and not too scary
It's good to drink that green green glass of home
Yes, my blues have gone, I feel elated, it must be THC-related
It's good to drink that green green glass of home

Then I awake and look around me, my head's hurt and I'm vomiting
and I realize, yes, I must have passed out from drinking
For there's my sodium lamp, still, pots and hookah -
I feel like I've been hit by bazooka
I drank too much that green, green glass of home
But tomorrow I'll fill up that flagon and have a blast of my Green Dragon
I'll be careful with that green, green glass of home

Despite the results, this stuff always draws repeat customers. Wonderfully written, under the influence? Or sober? I wish more American 18 year olds, who lost the right to drink to federal blackmail would have taken up the ancient and honorable profession of distilling homemade moonshine.

Thanks for a more cheerful version of the OS which was so depressing. Are you refering to absinthe?

2Eagle, actually no. I am referring to cannabis liqueur, known in Finland as "Green Dragon". Making that stuff is pretty common here, as smoking maryjane has the distinctive telltale odour and many people don't like to smoke, so they exctract the THC into ethanol and rather imbibe the good stuff by drinking than inhaling. Clandestine indoors farming is an underground hobby here, as is moonshining. So why not combine those two?
