The Lyrics

I hope I don't get a contact stigma for writting this parody. I don't smoke wacky tabacy . Please reference my parody "The Rope" for proof of my disdain for hemp. When I took a ceramics class in highschool I was really good at making bud vases. Then I'd sell them to other students. But after those students modified them for canibas inhilation, the teacher would end up smashing them to make ensamples for the others.
I've been ablaze forever, and I toke my ceramic bongs
I bring the herbs and pottery together
It's amusing so I wrote this song

I light the bongs that make the T-H-C
I light the bongs of bud and incense springs
I light the bongs that make the munchies cry
I light the bongs, I light the bongs

My dope lies steeped with issues
And It's got it's own stash in my soul
Now, when I look back through my life
I'm stoned at ten, all because my peers cajoled

Oh my incense makes me snack
And gives me merit to take a nap
And I toke the bottle hole so I can groove
Youthfull thrills of heart
Well, that's a real half baking start
Hit's from me hit's for you
Hit's from you, hit's for me
It's a worldwide chimmeny

The biggest problem with schooling is what students really learn there...

I'm wondering why Johnny D hasn't yet written "I Height the Dongs."
