The Lyrics

burn it up

big peel keeps on burnin'
gettin' me stoned, this fruity skin
my old bong is crammed with plantains
i think these bananas make me spin
so i bought me a bin...yes

well, i heard that the young raved about 'em
well, you burn the peel, fully ground
when i smoke peels, son, i'm a-tremble
a sudden plan, when weed ain't around, anyhow

sweet smoke of bananas
hell, the high gets me through
sweet smoke of bananas
works when you can't smoke a doob

just burn it, sam, its worth the trouble
woo hoo hoo
when there's no lid, what can ya do ?
but runnin' out does not bother me
i've discovered something new
who needs doobs ?

sweet smoke of bananas
hell, the high gets me through
sweet smoke of bananas
works when you can't smoke a doob
leaves me stoned...my bananas

now, monkey types sure love those suckers
though they don't use 'em like we do
(monkeys : yes we do ! )
lord, it gets me off, so much
it picks me up when i'm feelin' blue
i'm so subdued

sweet smoke of bananas
oh sweet smoke, baby
hell, the high gets me through
dig the yellow hue
sweet smoke of bananas
lord !
works when you can't smoke a doob

and these bananas don't give you cancer !

The way the title rhymes with the OS is funny enough. But I wonder if that is an urban legend the same as making farts flame with a match.

OK, Alvin, although "Sweet Home Alabama" is one of my favorite songs of all time and this is an excellent parody fully deserving 5's straight across, you cannot get high off of smoking banana peels. I tried it once when I was in the 4th grade after an older cousin told me that one could get high off of banana peels, but all that happened to me was some severe coughing that was nearly to the point of producing blood, a massive headache and having to vomit. 2Eagle is right about getting high off of banana peels is an urban legend. 5s.

Can't reallly get mellow on yellow, but I'm high on this parody.

A little story: Oct ., 1970, a grad school colleague who'd had never tried the wicked weed had made it known that she hoped someone would help her "correct" that deficiency onher upcoming birthday. On the day, all dep't's students gathered in her office--grad students had'em then--with cake and a "doobie" wrapped in pretty pink paper. The doobie was, in fact, made of tarragon (whose smell as it burned wasn't so terribly far off), but she believing herself growing higher with each toke, she became silly and noisy enough to attract the attention of some nearby faculty, some of whose ribs the prank, when perforce explained, didn't tickle. :-)
