The Lyrics

It's been around forever--who lit the very first bong?
You sure know how to put it all together--
You hear music when you light your bong

Chorus:
You light your bong and now the whole world stinks
And now you've told yourself you're Col. Clink
You light your bong and smoke gets in my eyes
You light your bong, you light your bong

Skunk Passion is your favorite
It's got its own place in your soul
Now you have very bloodshot eyes
And you're lookin kind of haggard and old

When your bong's lit you can't dance
You can't even put on your pants
And in a short while, you won't even move
Smoke fills up the room
I'll be leaving very soon
Gotta breathe, get some air,
Gotta get outta here
To a place that's smoke-free

You light your bong and make the whole world stink
And now you've told yourself you're Col. Clink
You light your bong and smoke gets in my eyes
You light your bong, you light your bong

This parody in no way glorifies the drug culture---"the whole world stinks"........did you read the lines--I think you're more interested in throwing mud on me than on reading my parody. Too bad.
