The Lyrics

Schlep rum over past the borderline;
can’t cop drinks—it’s sad…stores closed.
Hooch-hide barrels being busted up by
damn feds each time a nest’s exposed.

Everybody knows: This jerk amendment brings on woe.
Feds are seizin’ all in sight.
Wine once bought, out of line, a no-no.
It’s mighty hard to be loose/tight.

They’re going up Canada way
to pick up lots of joy-prompt goodies to relay.
In every bootlegger’s mind: folks not dry.
Dudes make their way clear to speakeasies with rye.

It goes on and on, for a sinless phase,
Until one year past ’32.
“Bye!” No more; it’s dead;
lap-spree times, happy days!
Many swiggings ensue.

Legalized marijuana will create the same problems. No one will be toking up who didn't already have a steady supply. Missouri has a lot of unenforceable rules that may or may not be selectively enforced. California is wondering why druggers are not lining up at the licensed arcade to pay twice as much for what they can already get. Years ago, I saw a Canadian Licence to Purchase Liquor. It was issued at the Provincial level and looked like an old-fashioned bank savings passbook. An individual had to carry it to buy booze, and it was recorded by type and quantity. From what I could gather, foreign tourists and restaurant purchases were exempt. Have not been able to find anything on the internet about it. Oh, that scene in "The Untouchables". Why did the Canadian Mounties ride to the rescue of Kevin Costner? Liquor was not illegal in Canada, and they had no jurisdiction or motivation to enforce stupid US laws.
