The Lyrics

Colorado is the prime state for legalized marijuana! They're raising money hand over fist and it's doing well. Other states are following suit......and once the Republicans get their heads out of their asses and stop incarcerating people for a single joint, we'll all be better off. That isn't going to happen, so we just have to vote them out....ONE STATE AT A TIME.
He got stoned in the summer of his twenty-seventh year
Took a toke of something he'd never tried before
I think he must have really liked it, the next day he got stoned again
I guess he'll be smoking weed forever more

When he first came to the head shop, his wife was out for the day
He went down and bought himself a bong
Now his kids are with him tokin', his wife doesn't really care
She keeps sayin' "No!", but that won't last for long

Cuz' in Colorado, you can all get high
So many different kinds that you can buy
Put some in your brownies, or maybe your pumpkin pie.........
They're all gettin' high (in Colorado)
They're all gettin' high (high in Colorado)

He got his rolling papers and a couple Pink Floyd CDs
He's got everything a die-hard pothead needs
And they say he's gettin' lazy now
But he's trying to teach his son that you can't get high just smoking stems & seeds

So, he has a weekly rendezvous with the neighbors down the street
Getting shit-faced with every friend he makes
Decided to delight himself and try and comprehend
this ability to eat a whole chocolate cake

But in Colorado, everyone gets high
It's workin' out real fine, you can't deny
Catch a buzz, then grab a couple burgers and some fries...........

You can all get high (high in Colorado)
You can all get high (high in Colorado)

Now it has to make you wonder what the hell it's going to take
for Republicans to sing a different tune
While they try to fill the prisons up and build up a dozen more
More people whose lives that they can ruin

But in Colorado, they let you get high
Got munchies? Order up a pizza pie.
So, tell them folks in poorer states that they really ought to legalize!
Let the folks get high....

Cuz' in Colorado, you can all get high
They're raising lots of revenue besides....
Balancing their budget, and everything is fine......................

You can all get high (high in Colorado)
You can all get high (high in Colorado)
You can all get high (high in Colorado)
You can all get high (high in Colorado)
