The Lyrics

This is the true story about a drug dealer visiting the Netherlands to buy pot, but he bought spinach by mistake. And then he smuggled it back. Dork.
he took a business trip here a while ago
a simple-minded fool, 'cos
he tried to score some medication
but went negotiating
with vegetable stands
he must have smoked some 'fore he went to the sale
then he saw the greens and he gave 'em the pay
and didn't realize
it wasn't really pot

he filled his bag and closed tight
he never even looked twice

he embraced what he thought was Mary Jane
thanked the man who sells: "That's quite good dope
the plants that you grow"

what a fool with weed
who deals
he bought veg that empowers
but won't make you space
it seems that he's
mistakenly bought spinach
while he wanted pot

went speeding the Autobahn to his happy home
a pretty stupid move
'cos police stopped his car, right then, right there
he wet his pants

his sweat ran down to his thighs
these cops suspected some crime

as they rummaged through his old car's backseat
it was not too long before they'd know...
they sniggered and roared:

"What a fool with weed
do you mean
to get your cash off Popeye?
proceed on your way"
it seems (if pot he wants, and pot he'll blow)
that he's (then why can't he return pot home?)
mistakenly bought spinach
(spinach empowers)
while he wanted pot

what a fool with weed
(I believe he took a bong that day)
who deals (oh...)
he bought veg that empowers
(which won't make you space)
but won't make you space
it seems (oh, the pot will come, then pot will go)
that he's (oh, ow now)
mistakenly bought spinach
(oh, he bought spinach)
while he wanted pot...

I can't swallow the pot of this story. Er, plot. I thought you couldn't speed on the Autobahn, isn't any speed legal? Or is that a reference to drugs. I don't know...

Er, yeah, Tim Mayfield, as any speed is legal on the Autobahn, except for certain marked areas, I guess you stumbled upon a pot hole, I mean, plot hole in this parody. German authorities recommend a top speed of 130 km per hour. Dutch authorities recommend an unlimited top speed for any incoming and outgoing travel: drug dealers pile in, buy 'n' sell, then zoom out again. That's what makes a small country small. :-) Thank you loads, Rick C and Alvin Rhodes. Popeye, my cousin has a deal for you. You see, she never finishes her spinach, and instead, shoves it under the table. I might fix you up with quite a stack of the green stuff, but the quality may fluctuate, and the price is not negotiable. Johnny D, my mom taught me to eat a plate of greens a day, which I do, and which makes me a very healthy, strong boy. I'm always aiming for the sky, and maybe one day I'll fly... into space, man... ;-) And thank you very much, LeeBee and Carol.

Tim Mayfield, I forgot to explain. What really happened was, that he went past a police control and was stopped SOMEWHERE in Germany. I had to make some of the facts sound more romantic than they are. :-)

I really think it's funny, but again, I'm not familiar with the song- you haven't done many songs that I am familiar with, sorry, because you're the only one who read my last two parodies, so thankyou.

You're welcome, Allicat. It's okay if you don't know the original to a lot of my parodies. No one's forcing you to even read my parodies, anyway. But thanks for dropping by. :-)

You can't be TOO nice to someone, Allicat. We all got to carry each other, right? Even though I prefer carrying myself to being carried...
