Friends Of Distinction – Grazing In The Grass lyrics

Sure is mellow grazin' in the grass (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)
What a trip just watchin' as the world goes past (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)
There are too many groovy things to see while grazin' in the grass (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)
Flowers with colours for takin', everything outta sight (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)

The sun peekin' out between the leaves (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)
And the bir-ir-ir-irds dartin' in and out of the trees (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)

Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Can you dig it?

I can dig it, he can dig it, she can dig it, we can dig it, they can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it. Can you dig it, baby?
I can dig it, he can dig it, she can dig it, we can dig it, they can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it. Can you dig it, baby?

------ instrumental break ------

The sun peekin' out between the leaves (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)
And the bir-ir-ir-irds dartin' in and out of the trees (grazin' in the grass, yes, baby, can you dig it?)

Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Can you dig it?

I can dig it, he can dig it, she can dig it, we can dig it, they can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it. Can you dig it, baby?
I can dig it, he can dig it, she can dig it, we can dig it, they can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it. Can you dig it, baby?

    The music was written by Hugh Masekela, for him to play on his trumpet. At the same time nfl Hall Of Famer Jim Brown had his money and support in The Friends Of Distinction.(Hugh and Jim were the "friends" in the band name).
    The term "Can you dig it?" was popular st the time, and was mentioned while listening to Hugh's recording. Then it was repeated. Then sung.
    A set of "novelty" lyric were written, using as many groovy catch-phrases of the time as possible.
    The song is actually about being high. Probably on grass?
