The Lyrics

it looked fine and leafy brown
when i bought ounces off you
rolled up a number...i oughta bop you

oh sonny, you turned me on...to oregano
i feel consternation...i'm a little bit ornery
its a deal gone sour..downcast and sour
angry at you and i'm callin' you out
i'm pissed off here
i hope you can make it up...am i clear ?

you know i sure like weed smokin'
i get stoned so quick
but that ain't what i'm tokin' and i'm hip to your trick
its just hurtful and dirty...lousy swine
and you know i can't blow the whistle on this kind of deal
but i'm still hot...don't have a doubt
if there's no substitution for me, i'll knock you out

i am emphatic...i want you dead
with your neck a-crackin'...cause you did me dismal
and it just ain't fair
when you see my face you'd best beware
i'm gonna tell you again now
hope you're still fidgetin' there

it looked fine and leafy brown
when i bought ounces off you
rolled up a number...i oughta bop you

you're a foul son of a bitch
and my trust, you are blowin'
kiss off our friendship, sonny...you ain't worth knowin'
you're no pal, just forget it
this ain't grass i'm smokin'
pent up in frustration...my heart is broken
