Okay well we'll just start. Ready? 1, 2, 3, Go.

Mama don't smoke,
That much dope,
Don't you worry about me.
Mama don't smoke,
That much dope,
Don't you worry about me.
I only get high about twice a day,
It helps to keep my blues away.

Chris said something about all them,
Long-haired Jesus Christ look-alikes,
Shining down on me,
Shining down on me.

I'm more laid back than you,
I'm more laid back than you,
Yeah, I'm more laid back than you will ever be.

Mama don't smoke,
That much dope,
Don't you worry about me.
Mama don't smoke,
That much dope,
Don't you worry about me.
I only get high about twice a day,
It helps to keep my blues away.

    General CommentThis song is simple to understand. A mother worries about her doughter because she hang out with hippies and she smokes pot.

    General CommentThe lyrics itself are pretty easy to understand. What's interesting is to know if it is a cynical song? If she sings that she only gets high twice a day, does that mean she is high 'all day'? Because she uses heroin or some other drug instead of weed?

    And how much does mother smoke?

    And who is she to tell her mother not to worry? If she's getting high twice a day, I think any decent mother would worry. I would, and I'm a father.

    I did smoke 'twice a day' or more. Didn't get me very much. Used to be fun at first but in the long run it's not that funny. Glad I managed to stop it, clean for almost a year now (no drinking either). What is sort of funny is that i 'used' this song as an excuse to minimise the consequences of smoking weed. See, BV3000 does it twice a day to keep the blues away. No worrries!

    Yeah right.... I know better now.

    Do it, but don't overdo it!!!
