The Lyrics

Inhalant abuse is an alarmingly common method of intoxication amongst young schoolgirls in Finland. Compared to alcohol and illicit drugs, it is both legal, easy and relatively cheap method of getting high. Yet definitely NOT suggested to anyone!
I'll have some fun, and yes I've had my fair share of downs
Been down that rocky road, but here I am, still around
I've drunk a lot alcohol, I have smoked a lot of grass
I've pushed a lot of heroin, I have been all stoned in class
But I've found the stuff that's best
I'll inhale myself in stupor
Have can of glue
And I'll take deep breath...

Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I am happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I'm so happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
'Cause I can see, (I can see) that I am getting high with adhesive

I've had my blues, they have been about to crush me
And my heart has been broken, but I'll fix it with adhesive
So come on and huff with me, we're gonna climb up above the clouds
And it's no great mystery
If we numb our minds
Eventually, it's can of glue for me

Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I am happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I'm so happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
'Cause I can see, (I can see) that I am getting high with adhesive

But I've found the stuff that's best
I'll inhale myself in stupor
Have can of glue
And I'll take deep breath...

Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I am happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I'm so happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
'Cause I can see, (I can see) that I am getting high with adhesive
Yes it's true (yes it's true) I'm so happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
I'm happy 'cause I've sniffed the glue
Happy to have sniffed the glue!

When I was 10 years old I built a lot of plastic model airplanes. Back then (early 1960's) I could buy some wonderful glue that would actually melt styrene and fuse the parts together. The stuff smelled rather bad and I would never have thought of deliberately inhaling it. When I was 16 I found a model that I wanted to assemble. I could no longer buy glue, the law said you had to be at least 18. I have despised the government and authority ever since. My home town (Kansas City, Kansas) prohibits the sale of spray paint and large marker pens to persons under 18. I think it has to do with graffiti rather than sniffing. The Environment Police once made an inspection of a typesetting company I worked for. They listed a felt tip marker as "hazardous material".

Loved this one, Susannah - 555! Reminds me of my art college days where I did an Exhibition Design course. We had to work with Perspex a lot, and the recommended substance for glueing it together was not glue but... chloroform! Oh, the fun we all had... and the many, many models we made - all ENTIRELY from wonky bits of Perspex... ;^)
And if that was too 'hardcore' - there was always the Pantone markers...
