The Lyrics

Now chemists are people with nose of steel
they'inhale those things which stink for real
and they know stuffs by having just a smell
But once me and a certain character met
He smoked a thing which wasn't a cigarette
The odour was sweet and it did ring my bell

It was something I do not smoke myself
But I wasn't sure if it was good for health
I asked him "Are those old socks that you burn?"
The guy turned around and smiled to me
and asked me to have an inhale deep
He said "Hey mam, take it easy, have your turn"

I said:
"Is that thing you smoke a cigarette?
Its smell is just like burning a rope that's made of hemp -"
He then offered me that fag
and told me it wasn't drag
But I'm pretty sure it wasn't cigarette

Now that warning bell in my head did ring
and I got wise what was that thing
Well, it was the stuff we chemists call THC
I asked him "Is that home-grown stuff
this sure ain't tobacco and this sure ain't snuff"
He said me "Are you afraid of nicotine?"

He said me with that raspy voice
"Relax now, mam, have huff, rejoice -
Don't be so shy - I will teach you how to fly"
But if there's one thing I've learnt these years
it's strange men are a source of fears
I said him "Thanks, but I think I'll pass it by"

I said:
"Is that thing you smoke a cigarette?
Its smell is just like burning a rope that's made of hemp -"
He then offered me that fag
and told me it wasn't drag
But I'm pretty sure it wasn't cigarette

(Ah, smoke it! Hah! Yes! Yes! Yes!)

He then said me "Well, okay"
I passed then by and turned my head
But I noticed there was something definately wrong
'Cause when I opened the ladies' room door
I saw two gals and then four more
and on the floor there was a glass thing I call bong

The smoke was so thick it could be cut with knife
I thought I'll run now away with my life
This sure did not feel a place that is safe for me
Then I heard a siren and the cops came in
I ran with my life, 'nuff I had seen
My man said at home "Have a smoke - now where you've been?"

I said:
"Is that thing you smoke a cigarette?
Its smell is just like burning a rope that's made of hemp -"
He then offered me that fag
and told me it wasn't drag
But I'm pretty sure it wasn't cigarette!

555!!! And to think during WW2 that Henry Ford got nowhere promoting the 1942 Hempmobile and his "Green Arrow" Chemurgian (from the ground) hemp 4-engine bomber. He was smeared by DuPont and Hearst while the US military used hemp in all forms for aircraft lubricants, parchute rigging, ship fire hoses, etc...!!!
