We come and around and Babylon is enfuego

Man I’m a cannabis addict, you better roll me one and if I have to I’ll light it
You catch my drift, my emergency spliff, I never leave home without
My emergency spliff

2. Burn One Down by Ben Harper

Lyrics “Burn One Down”

Let us burn one
From end to end
And pass it over
To me my friend
Burn it long, we’ll burn it slow
To light me up before I go

If you don’t like my fire
Then don’t come around
Cause I’m gonna burn one down
Yes I’m gonna burn one down

Yeah

My choice is what I choose to do
And if I’m causing no harm
It shouldn’t bother you
Your choice is who you choose to be
And if you’re causin’ no harm
Then you’re alright with me

If you don’t like my fire
Then don’t come around
Cause I’m gonna burn one down
Yes I’m gonna burn one down

Herb the gift from the earth
And what’s from the earth
Is of the greatest worth
So before you knock it try it first
Oh you’ll see it’s a blessing
And it’s not a curse

If you don’t like my fire
Then don’t come around
Cause I’m gonna burn one down
Yes I’m gonna burn one…

Oh

5. Be Healthy by Dead Prez

Lyrics “Be Healthy”

It’s all love. ..

I don’t eat no meat, no dairy, no sweets
Only ripe vegetables, fresh fruit and whole wheat
I’m from the old school, my household smell like soul food, bro
Curried falafel, barbecued tofu
No fish though, no candy bars, no cigarettes
Only ganja and fresh-squeezed juice from oranges
Exercising daily to stay healthy
And I rarely drink water out the tap, cause it’s filthy

Lentil soup is mental fruit
And ginger root is good for the yout’
Fresh veg-e-table with the mayatl stew
Sweet yam fries with the green calalloo
Careful how you season and prepare your foods
Cause you don’t wanna lose vitamins and miner-ules
And that’s the jewel
Life brings life, it’s valuable, so I eat what comes
From the ground, it’s natural
Let your food be your medicine (uh huh)
No excederin (uh uh)
Strictly herb, generate in the sun, cause I got melanin
And drink water, eight glasses a day
Cause that’s what they say

They say you are what you eat, so I strive to be healthy
My goal in life is not to be rich or wealthy
Cause true wealth comes from good health, and wise ways
We got to start taking better care of ourselves

They say you are what you eat, so I strive to be healthy
My goal in life is not to be rich or wealthy
Cause true wealth comes from good health, and wise ways
We got to start taking better care of ourselves, be
Healthy y’all. ..

Yeah, yeah, yeah, hold the fuck up, yo
We’ll take this little intermission, listen what the
Fuck we gotta say, y’know?
Word is bond son, niggaz been livin fat for too long, knowamsayin?
Smokin bogeys, fuckin drinkin all types of shit
Wailin out, not givin a fuck what they puttin in they
Bodies, son, knowamsayin?

That shit is fuckin, makin us deteriorate, son
Word up, we gotta care bout our little babies an shit, son
Niggaz got kids to raise, straight up
Ya gotta start learnin yo self, learning bout ya health, son

So I’m gonna leave y’all niggaz on some shit like that, ya knowamean?
Word up, y’all niggaz better start usin y’all minds an
Shit, kid
Peace

6. Ganja Babe by Michael Fronti

Lyrics “Ganja Babe”

I wanna make it slow
Sensemille
I wanna make it slow
Make me feel ya

Heavy medicine
ya see my eyes are feeling red again
I’m bringin’ light
like Thomas funky Edison
been in the desert for forty seven days
Purple Haze
the poison that I tasted never changed
turn up the woofers so I can feel the beat
vibrate my belly like a bomb in harmony
summer heat
my back is sticking to me to the seat
bare feet
tank top and shorts is all ya need
summer breeze
I’m feelin’ kinda fine
I’m rolling with my shorty all the time
wind and grind lovely shake your behind
cinnamon skin be bringing sin to my mind
but whether or not the weather’s hot
or the weather’s cold
I’m wrapping her like a blanket with my whole soul
so that she can feel me
like Coca Cola I’m the woo-o-oh oh the sweet thing
my girl lollipop she growing mad crops
she rollin’ herbs everyday
at about 4 o’ clock
tick tock
strike the hammer while the Iron’s hot
ooh girl watcha got cooking in the pot
see Mary Mary quite contrary
how does your garden grow?
Hydrophonic ultra supersonic
or does it grow naturally slow?

Ganja babe my sweet ganja babe
I love tha way ya love me and the way ya misbehavin’
ganja babe my sweet ganja babe
come wake body-ody take my mind away

Everybody get down and do the boogaloo
just like the cover of I want you
yoo hooo look watcha gonna do
watcha gonna do when the rent comes due
round up the posse and call up the crew
5 bucks at the door and ya bring ya own booze
call ya neighbor ’cause they can come too
be sure and bring ya records ’cause I only got a few
so baa baa black sheep have you any wool
yes sir, yes sir a nickle bagful
some for my partner, some for my crew
some for my ganja baby she needs 2
cause just like me they long to be… high

8. Smoke Two Joints by Sublime

Lyrics “Smoke Two Joints”

She was living in a single room with three other individuals.
One of them was male and the other two;
Well, the other two were females.
God only knows what they were up to in there.
And further more Susan, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to learn,
That all four of them habitually smoked marajuana cigarettes… Reefers!

I smoke two joints in the morning,
I smoke two joints at night,
I smoke two joints in the afternoon,
It makes me feel all right.
I smoke two joints in time of peace,
And two in time of war.
I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints,
And then I smoke two more.

Smoked cigarettes ’til the day she died
Toke a big spliff of some good sensimillia
Smoked cigarettes ’til the day she died
Toke a big spliff of some good sensamill…”
Easy E were ya ever caught slippin’?
Hell no!

Daddy he once told me,
“Son, you be hard workin’ man”
And momma she once told me,
“Son you do the best you can”
but then one day I met a man,
He came to me and said,
“I work good and I work fine,
but first take care of head”

Whoa, rock me tonight,
Whoa-oh, Jah say,
Ohhhhhh ohhh ohhh ohhhh…

9. One Toke over the Line by Brewer & Shipley

Lyrics “One Toke over the Line”

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Awaitin’ for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hopin’ that the train is on time
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Whoooo do you love, I hope it’s me
I’ve bin a changin’, as you can plainly see
I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
If I should choose to make a part of me, surely strike me dead
Now I’m one toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
I’m waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin’ that the train is on time
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I bin away a country mile
Now I’m returnin’ showin’ off a smile
I met all the girls and loved myself a few
Ended by surprise like everything else I’ve been through
It opened up my eyes and now I’m
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin’ that the train is on time
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin’ that the train is on time
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I want to be
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don’t you just know I waitin’ for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin’ that the train is on time
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Sittin’ downtown in a railway station
One toke over line
One toke, one toke over the line

11. Medication by Damian Marley ft. Stephen Marley

Lyrics “Medication”

Medication
Your medication makes me high
Just be patient
I’m like a patient trying to find
Levitation
Run your fingers down my spine
Elevation
Your medication makes me high
Hey

Such a short way up and such a long way down
Chalice it a bubble like we deh ya right down
The way you somethin’ nuff it haffi weigh five pound
Inna fields of marijuana that is my playground
I love you, Mary J
You’re the prettiest of flowers
Girl, me can’t complain
When I’m with you, I feel so high, I rise above the rain
And you no do people damage, like that bitch cocaine, no
And if them lonely, feeling only pain
‘Cause, your DNA is of the highest strain
Your effect is so potent, it’s so insane
You so gummy and sticky like a plasticine
When me grind out your body, only stems remain
And to love you is so risky, I might get detained
You always keep me flying on the highest plane
And anybody know, will always proclaim

Medication
Your medication makes me high
Just be patient
I’m like a patient trying to find
Levitation
Run your fingers down my spine
Elevation
Your medication makes me high
Hey

Your leaves of green, your purples and blue
A short little kids, adore women too
And I say to myself, what a wonderful herb
And I say to myself, what a wonderful herb

Look how Babylon so duppy, dem fight you fi years
Fi your love whole heap a man serve years
Babylon so duppy, dem fight you fi years
And now the whole a dem a buy shares
You should be a celebrity, amongst any tree
Across the seven seas, for your energy
But you’re an enemy, catching felonies
Of the remedies in your recipes, whoa

Medication
Your medication makes me high
Just be patient
I’m like a patient trying to find
Levitation
Run your fingers down my spine
Elevation
Your medication makes me high
Hey

Ask me how you feel, splendid indeed
With a likkle bit a black splendid weed
Her parents grow indoors, not a stick nor seed
And she never force-ripe, it was a real slow speed
No fertilizer, natural baby feet
No cross pollination, she’s a real pure breed
Cultivated in love and she’s not grown for greed
She’s everything I want and also all I need

Medication
Your medication makes me high
Just be patient
I’m like a patient trying to find
Levitation
Run your fingers down my spine
Elevation
Your medication makes me high
Hey
