Songwriters: MARRIOTT, STEVE

Roll that tape
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Thirty...
Thirty days...
Anyone doin' that one?
Thirty...
I'm doin' that one

30 days in the hole (yeah, that's nice)
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole (Lord have mercy)

(Laughter)
Oh yeah, c'mon in man that's it
Yeah right

All right, all right, all right, all right, yeah

Chicago Green, talkin' 'bout RED Lebanese
A dirty room and a silver coke spoon
Give me my release, come on
Black Nepalese, it's got you weak in your knees
Seeds and dust that you got bust on
You know it's hard to believe

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
That's what they give you
30 days in the hole

Newcastle Brown, I'm tellin' ya, it can sure smack you down
Take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
It's got your head spinnin' round
If you live on the road, well there's a new highway code
You take the urban noise with some durban poison
It's gonna lessen your load

30 days in the hole
That's what they give you now
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
All right, all right
30 days in the hole

Well how you doin' boy?
You here for 30 days
Get, get, get your long hair cut
And cut out your ways

Black Nepalese, it got you weak in your knees
Only seeds and dust that you got bust on
You know it's so hard to please
Newcastle Brown can sure smack you down
You take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
You know you're jailhouse-bound

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
Ohoooohooohooooo
30 days in the hole
30 days, 30 days, 30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole

    Rock/drug culture and getting busted with only some pot seeds and dust... And getting 30 days for it.

    It's amazing how many people saw black lebanese in the posted lyrics when it's clearly red lebanese (there was only red and blonde lebanese hash... There was however black nepalese)

    Living the life of making music, getting high, and hooking up with groupies. To top it all off you get busted and have to spend 30 days in jail.

    Newcastle brown is beer, durban poison refers to a potent strain of marijuana... And the lyrics here are all messed up... Black nepalese is hashish (as is red lebanese)
