Just gimme the trees and make we smoke it yo (smoke it yo!)
It a make we please, so don't provoke it yo (voke it yo)
We no need no speed, so we not gon coke it yo (coke it yo)
Set ya mind at ease, we gotta take it slow (take it slow)

So when ya see the S.P. floatin', don't provoke him
Cau di weed we be smokin' need fi soakin'.
Best thing for the meditation, and the best highgrade a Jamaican
It for a weed we supportin' not promotin'
Lay off the crack and the cokin, hear me shouting
Herb is the healin' of the nation
Legalize it, right now we gon blaze one

Everyday, we be burnin' not concernin' what nobody wanna say
We be earnin' dollars turning cau we mind them pon we pay
Some got gold and oil and diamonds, all we got is Mary J
Legalize it, time to recognize it

This purple haze, it make me crazy
Make me write 'nough tune, and that's what pays me
But I'm not the only occupation
Goin' to gain, so make I give you education
When a farmer grows it he knows to close it
Economical benefit helpin' those who have it
They upon there hard jugglin
Cau the system only keep man struggling
Studyin people a use it, don't abuse it
Cau the concentration well reputed
Dat's why herb man them a wise one
And it found on the grave of King Solomon
And weed good for the eye sight and the chest sight
And it give enough insight, just gimme the light
And, make we blaze it, we shoulda never waste it

Again, we be burnin' not concernin' what nobody wanna say
We be earnin' dollars turning cau we mind the pon we pay
Some got gold and oil and diamonds, all we got is Mary J
Legalize it, time to recognize it

Just gimme the trees and make we smoke it yo (smoke it yo!)
It a make me please, so don't provoke it yo (voke it yo!)
We no need no speed, so we not gon coke it yo (coke it yo!)
Set ya mind at ease, we gotta take it slow (take it slow!)

So when ya see the S.P. floatin', don't provoke him
Cau di weed we smokin' need for soakin'
Best thing for the meditation, and the best high-grade a Jamaican
Cau we know it is a great thing, no debatin
While them incarcerating, true them hating
Cau them don't wanna see we a remain calm
Even though them got them subpoenaed

Everyday, we be burnin', not concernin' what nobody wanna say
We be earnin' dollars turning cau we mind them poor we pay
Some got gold and oil and diamonds, all we got is Mary J
Legalize it, time to recognize it

Again, we be burnin', not concernin' what nobody wanna say
We be earnin' dollars turning cau we mind them poor we pay
Some got gold and oil and diamonds, all we got is Mary J
Legalize it, time to recognize it

Again, we be burnin', not concernin' what nobody wanna say
We be earnin' dollars turning cau we mind them poor we pay
Some got gold and oil and diamonds, all we got is Mary J
Legalize it, time to recognize it
