The Lyrics

The intro to this one came sort of by accident, while suggesting a couple of changes to Taoist's excellent "Bat Out Of Hell" parody. And once that was in my head, the parody had to be written...

PC: On a hot summer night would you offer a toke to the pig in the plain clothes?
Hippie: Will he offer me a joint?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: Will he offer me a pipe?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: Will he offer me his coke?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: Will he offer me his stash?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: Again, will he offer me his stash?
PC: YES.
Hippie: And get withrawal symptoms without me?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: And will he nick me?
PC: Yes.
Hippie: Yes.
PC: On a hot summer night would you offer a toke to the pig in the plain clothes?
Hippie: Yes.
PC: You're nicked, sonny
It was a hot summer night and the roach was burning,
There were rocks falling onto my shirt
When I take another toke I feel the whole world turning,
I see the shooting stars,
Falling face down in the dirt

I was licking my lips and getting the munchies
I was dying just to ask for a bite,
We were smoking together grass in great big bunches
But the lighter has gone
You know there's no one here to ask for
No one here to ask for
No one here to ask for a light

Then I take a big hit, so my knees grow weak,
And I start flying high above the ground,
I'm trying to speak but no matter what I do,
I just can't seem to make any sound.

And then you took the herb right out of my mouth,
Oh you must have been a little pissed at me
You took the herb right out of my mouth,
And I swear it's true,
I was just about pass it on to you,
And then you took the herb right out of my mouth,
Oh you must have been a little pissed at me
You took the herb right out of my mouth,
And I swear it's true,
I was just about pass it on to you,

Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water,
And I guess that I'm beginning to grin,
I'm starting to giggle like some vicar's daughter
The joint is strong,
And ain't no one gonna know what
No one gonna know what
No one's gonna know where you've been.

I was licking my lips and getting the munchies
I was dying just to ask for a bite,
We were smoking together grass in great big bunches
But the lighter has gone
You know there's no one here to ask for
No one here to ask for
No one here to ask for a light

And then you took the herb right out of my mouth,
Oh you must have been a little pissed at me
You took the herb right out of my mouth,
Oh you must have been a little pissed at me
...repeat ad nauseam...
