Brian Robbins - Marijuana lyrics

Als er in een gedeelte geen akkoorden staan dan moeten daar dezelfde
akkoorden gespeeld worden als in een gedeelte daarvoor. Je hoort vanzelf
welke akkoorden je bij dat gedeelte moet spelen.

Well, once upon a time in Seventeen Seventy-Six
Thomas Jefferson signed his name on a piece of marijuana
And this document was a symbol of freedom
And of liberty, at least for the rich white gentry

And time marched along, this plant that I referred to
Has been used for everything from medicine to the American flag
And now it seems to me that somewhere along the way
Things got messed up, yeah, messed up

For marijuana
A gift of God to my brothers and me
Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee

Well, some say a conspiracy, the petrol, chemical and pulp paper
Industries combined to kill the competition
Government hysteria, monopoly
And conflict of interest with total impunity, yeah

So if you don't buy the conspiracy, just look at the reality
That your tax dollars go to spray poison
on the fields of a farmer in South America
And as an added bonus, your neighbour might be the proud recipient
Of that poison weed

Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee
Oh, marijuana
A gift of God to my brothers and me

Oh, marijuana
You can't legislate your own morality
Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee

Free from madness, chronic sadness
What is the half-life of bad propaganda
The policies fail, denied bail
You made him a demon, now pay for his trip to prison

Hard to promote the status quo
But what is the shelf life of bad legislation
The hypocrite smirks, it's a moral disgrace
D
As he reads from the law that was written
About the same time
that he had his last original thoughts

Men said he was dying and the nausea and the pain
Left him wasting away and unable to keep a meal down
So he tried everything prescription could obtain
But to no avail, the side effects were worse than the pain

So now he breaks the law to use the one thing that seems
To help him out, but the people say, oh he's just gettin' high
But not to change the subject, but didn't you ever wonder why
Gettin' high's a crime, yeah, a crime

For marijuana
A gift of God to my brothers and me
Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee

Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee
Oh, marijuana
The government wants to test me when I pee
