LEGALISE ME

 

legalise me

oh I want the legal right to be me

only me

legalise me

bail me jail me but they’re never gonna nail me

pharmaceutically

 

I was sleeping like a baby in bed

when I woke up to a voice in my head

“we’re all outta rooms try down the road” is what I said

I’m just a farmer and I grow marijuana

 

oh baby doll

can you tell that I like that?

oh baby doll

we’re gonna rattle your combinations

up and down

 

legalise me

oh I gotta gotta gotta feel free

really free

legalise me

wake me shake me if they’re going to come and take me

make it legally

 

I been campaigning for the rights of the meek

I been holed up in a tree most of the week

hey sir your crush boxes are starting to leak

they’re saying “never” but we’ll wait here

forever and ever and ever and ever

 

oh baby doll

can you tell that I like that?

oh baby doll

we’re gonna rattle your combinations baby

up and down

 

and if I wanna shake my hair in the sun

don’t try to flail me for offending anyone

I don’t take prozac and I’ll never own a gun

I’m just a farmer but I swear I'd never harm her

 

oh baby doll

can you tell that I like that?

oh baby doll

we’re gonna rattle your combinations baby

up and down
