Cannabis Made a Man of Us
(Music - M. Novak, Lyrics – M. Novak, M. Sass)
Tasty green bud kept in a jar
Hidden in our toilets hidden in our car
We put it in our brownies and our cookies too
When we visit Mom in prison we put it in her shoe
We have to hide it very carefully when getting on a plane
And make sure they don’t find it in the baggage that we claim.
Cannabis Made a Man of Us for oh so many years
Cannabis Made a Man of Us now it’s our career
We put on our tie-dyed shirts
The ones we got at many Dead concerts
Let’s spark up a J
and let Maryjane take us away
The world seemed to look better through bloodshot eyes
We always felt better with the stoner guys.
“Hey Dad can borrow 20 bucks for gas?”
He’ll never know that is really for some grass
Tryin to buy a lid from the local cool kid
And bumming some Zig Zags from a guy named Sid
I hid it in the dog food but Fido found my stash
And now he’s laying face down in the neighbors trash
The best part of Wake and Bake
Is Folgers and some cake
Start the day with a J and take Fido to the lake
Always be suspicious of the people you don’t know
But always keep your cool don’t let your paranoia show.
After a 40 year wait you can sit back with your bong
Safe in the knowledge that you’re doing nothing wrong.
