The Lyrics

act a little bit funny...when weed is imbibed
i'm caught in a mode...that is...weird to describe
i don't have much cunning, but....boy, do i dig
i always flip out when...i smoke good cigs

if i have a puff here...and then again, two mo'
i'm a man...who has notions, that are....travelin' slow
i know its a crutch...but its...what i must do
i fill up my bong with...the buds i grew

and you can tell its my hobby...here's my herb song
i may get quite simple, yeah...when i smoke some
i'm dopin' my mind....i'm dopin' my mind
till i'm ripped and absurd
how wonderful, i feel...when real life's obscured

i get kinda goofed...i'm quick to get off
some may say...its subversive...and your...brains may get soft
but it brings me sunshine...when my face is long
its a reefer i do...to....keep me turned on

sure, some things i'm forgettin'....but only a few
my mind ain't got rotten...from the green...that i blew
anyway...the thing is...what i really mean
mine are the reddest eyes...you've ever seen

and you can tell its my hobby...here's my herb song
i may get quite simple, yeah...when i smoke some
i'm dopin' my mind....i'm dopin' my mind
till i'm ripped and absurd
how wonderful, i feel...when real life's obscured

i'm dopin' my mind....i'm dopin' my mind
till i'm ripped and absurd
how wonderful, i feel...when real life's obscured
