The Lyrics

[Latin percussion-and-string intro]

Her name was Lola
She was a hippy
With yellow feathers in her hair
And bell-bottoms down to there
She cooked meringue pies
With lots of ganja
And while she cleaned the bong of tar
Tony always drove the car
Around Haight-Ashbury
And scored some LSD
They were young and they had each other
And got high for free

They would smoke a (Smo!)
Smoke a banana (smoke a banana)
The cheapest buzz north of Havana (Yeah!)
They would smoke a (Smo!)
Smoke a banana
Music and incense
Were always so intense
When they smoked a...
...they fell in love...

(Smoke a... Smoke a banana)

His name was Rico
He wore a headband
He came to visit the commune
He heard Lola playin' tunes
And when she finished
He called her over
But Rico was a bit too stoned
Tony told him to go home
And then the Twinkies flew
And bongs were smashed in two
Lola threw a hash-brick at Rico,
And her throw got through!

So they smoked a (Smo!)
Smoked a banana (smoked a banana)
As Rico groaned on the veranda (Yeah!)
Yes, they smoked a (Smo!)
Smoked a banana
Cookies and pastry
Were always so tasty
When they smoked a...
...they were in love...

(Smoke a... Smoke a banana... )
(Smoke a... Smoke a banana... )
(Smoke a banana... Ahh ahh ahh ahh... )
(Ahh ahh ahh ahh... Smoke a... Smoke a banana...)
(Talking Havana... have a banana...)
(Cookies and pastry... Always so taaaaaaasty...)

[Latin percussion interlude]

Her name is Lola
She was a hippy
Thirty-five years ago last June
When her house was a commune
Now it's a condo
But not for Lola
Still in the jeans she used to wear
Faded feathers in her hair
She stays up late at night
Posting on Amiright
All Lola's children are neo-hippies
Mom thinks that's all right!

And they smoke a (Smo!)
Smoke a banana (smoke a banana)
Her grand-kids smoke fruit just like Nana (Yeah!)
They all smoke a (Smo!)
Smoke a banana
Grand-kids get home-schooled
And think Nana's so cool
When she smokes that...fruit they all love...

(Smoke a)...smoke fruit you love...
Smoke a banana...
Smoke a banana...

(repeat and, like, fade-out, man...)

Thanks, Max. The joke is that some hippies back in the 1960's and 1970's tried to get high by smoking banana peels....
