The Lyrics

I am high on peyote;
can’t stand marijuana.
And mescaline’s better than blow—
price is high, costs a fortune,
brings my accounts downward.
And that is why blow I forego.
To me it is a no-no.
That’s why I stick to peyo.
(To that word I think I’ll go—
subsitute it for “day-o,”
to parody Harry’s “Boat.”)

I am high on peyote;
can’t stand cucarachas.
This medicine's better than blow—
price is high, brings misfortune
to my bank accounting.
But still it is blow I forego.
To me it is a no-no.
Peyote lifts me up so.
