Yo, I'm gonna dedicate this day right at Woodstock '99,
DMX, Limp Bizkit, Sheryl Crow, amongst many.
Yo, just before I got on stage this chick came up to me.
She offered me something,
It looked kinda strange,
It was in a bag,
I said Yo girl let me talk to you real quick, Yo.

I don't sniff cocaine cause it mess up my brain.
For sexual stimulation, i never did no Ecstasy.
I don't pop pills, I never did no LSD.
But I wouldn't mind a kiss from Mrs. Mary.

Cause she's homegrown and you can hold her in her backyard,
Woooo-ooo-oooo-oo-o.
She's homegrown and you can get a kiss in her backyard.

I remember when I was a young boy,
I went to my grandad said, Daddy can i get a pull.
He looked at me, said, son, man, you're too young, kid.
When you get old enough and you understand,
I'll let you get a kiss from Mrs. Mary.

'cause she's homegrown and you can grow her in her backyard,
Woooo-ooo-oooo-oo-o.
She's homegrown and you can hold her in her backyard,
If she allows you to, you can hold her up,
She's homegrown and you can kiss her in her backyard,
Woooo-ooo-ooooooo.
She's homegrown, I'd like to be with you in her backyard.

This is when she looked at me,
She said Wycleff this what i want you to do son,
C'mon inhale, exhale, exhale, inhale, inhale, exhale, now hold it now.
Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, exhale, inhale, now breathe in my face
Mary G, Mary G.

She said that she's homegrown and you can grow her in her backyard,
Woooo-ooo-oooo-oo-o.
She's homegrown she said 'clef I'll kiss you in my backyard.
And my daddy don't need to know.
She said that I'm homegrown and you can grow me in your backyard,
Woooo-ooo-oooo-oo-o.
I'm homegrown and you don't need to worry for my backyard.

That's when i said i'm gonna get in trouble, I gotta go girl.
This what she said na na na na stick me lighter to take me higher and higher.
Na na na na na, stick me lighter to take me higher (flashback)and higher.
Na na na na na (I feel nice) in the bathroom stoned.
(I'm about to take you higher)
C'mon y'all wooo-ooo-oooo.
(I'm about to take you higher)
Wooo-ooo-oooo.
(I'm about to take you higher)
Yo for anybody sleepin on my guitar skills,
(I'm about to take yo higher)
This about to be on right about now
Yo turn my guitar up yo
What up, jimmy hendrix I see you baby
Yo Carlos Santana thanks for the lessons baby
Wooo-ooo-oooo.
Yo Steve Rod I ain't forgettin you man
To the godfather B.B. King
And to my man Eric Clapton
I think I'm forgettin somebody, man
The artist, ha-haaaaa
Yo Jerry Wonder, man,
You're playin that bass like Bootsie Collins, man
Don't hurt'em baby boy
