Just gimme di trees and mek we smoke it yo
(Smoke it yo)
It don't mek we please so don't provoke it yo
(Voke it yo)
We nuh need nuh speed so we nuh gon coke it yo
(Coke it yo)
Set we mind at ease we gotta take it slow

So when yuh see di S.P. floatin', don't provoke him
Cau di weed weh we smokin' need fi soakin'
Best ting fi di meditation
And di best hygrade a Jamaican

When we a bun a weed we supportin' and promotin'
Lau di crack and di coke ting yeah we soakin'
Herb a di healin' of di nation
Legalize it right now we wanna blaze one

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

This purple haze it mek mi crazy
Mek mi write new tune yeah dat's what pays me
But I'm not di only occupation
Goin' to get some I give yuh education

When a farmer grows it he knows to close it
Economical benefit help fi those who a fi
Deh yah pon di hard jugglin'
Cau di system only keep man strugglin'

Studyin' people a use it don't abuse it
Cau di concentration well reputed
Dat's why herb man dem a di wise one
And it found on di grave of King Solomon

And it good fi di eye sight and di chest sight
And it give yuh nuff insight just gimme di light
And, mek we blaze it we should a neva waste it

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

Just gimme di trees and mek we smoke it yo
(Smoke it yo)
It don't mek we please so don't provoke it yo
(Voke it yo)
We nuh need nuh speed so we nuh gon coke it yo
(Coke it yo)
Set we mind at ease we gotta take it slow

So when yuh see di S.P. floatin' don't provoke him
Cau di weed weh we smokin' need fi soakin'
Best ting fi di meditation
And di best hygrade a Jamaican

Cau we know it as a great ting no debatin'
While dem incarceratin' true dem hatin'
Cau dem don't wanna see we a remain calm
Even though dem got dem sirene on

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

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

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

Just gimme di trees and mek we smoke it yo
(Smoke it yo)
It don't mek we please so don't provoke it yo
(Voke it yo)
We nuh need nuh speed so we nuh gon coke it yo
(Coke it yo)
Set we mind at ease we gotta take it slow

    General CommentWell, heres a wild guess. I think it´s about smoking weed and that it should be legalized

    General CommentI love the tune. The words stink. I don't think weed should be legalized.

    General CommentIt sad that we can't have an honest debate about marijuana. Have any of you heard the radio version of this song? The lyrics are completly different, all referecnes to "MJ" have been taken out. The original song is not vulgar or demeaning, the FCC is wrong. But they have been for the last 50 years.

    Sean paul, dispite what most people think, is both Jamaican and well educated. If you have a problem with marijuana, suck it up. This is (was) the land of the free, America needs to grow up. Janette Jacksons boob isn't a big deal (not even if your kids saw it, they have seen one, or more, before), Spear Brittney and her kid driving is not news, teh is not a word, kanye west is not a civil rights leader, Che Guavara is not a clothing line, American idol is not the backbone of the american youth (god I hope not), and MJ is no worse for you than alcohol. In fact driving a car is statistically more dangerous than smoking weed.

    O.K. all you little pop whores and right-wing fundies are gonna get on my case, but thats OK because you know were right. Legalise it, time to recognize it.

    P.S. The lyrics aren't completly right.

    General CommentTo PunKinDrubliC:

    Sean Paul does dancehall music, which is offically a subgenre of reggae.

    But to echo what others have said, this is a song about legalizing ganja.

    General CommentLol, respect to Matt30! Yeah, America is going to hell.... They completely change a perfect song becuase of its lyrics. We're chansing a man around in a diferent country. Hundreds are dying, and all they can put on the news is about Britany Spears, Janette Jackson and other bull sh't. It's pretty sad, isn't it???

    General CommentRight wing fundies? LOL good one. Yea wait you forgot this one though.

    Bill Clinton gettin a BJ from one of his inters. Now the other stuff is agreed that its just BS, but that type of stuff is news. Now I would love to see the statistics that driving a car is more dangerous than smoking marijuana. Its like saying that walking down the street in NYC is more dangerous than cliff diving-on paper. Its just perposterous. SO this topic should arise new questions of our law. Seatbelt laws for example. If a person doent respect themselves enough to put on there seatbelt, and they get into an accident and serious injure themselves, wasnt it there own problem? And why should a cop give a person a ticket for not having there seatbelt on? Is it really their problem?

    Now, legalizing marijuana will corrupt this nation than it already has been by the LEFT wing.

    Like:Lttle Dick derbin, Hillary Rotten Clinton, Schmuckky schumer, Ruth Bader Ginsberg

    HA, legalizing marijuana so jamiaca has a main export? Thats the very,very,very least of our problems.
