Warning - The surgeon general warns
Cigarette smoking is dangerous... Dangerous
Hazard to your health
Does that mean anything to you?

Then legalize marijuana
Right here in Jamaica yeah
Dem say it cure glaucoma yeah
I'm an a de bush doctor yeah
So there'll be no more
Smokin' and feeling tense
When I see dem a com
I don't have to jump no fence

Legalize marijuana
Down here in jamaica yeah
Only cure for asthma yeah
I man a de minister yeah
So there'll be no more
Police brutality
No more disrespect for humanity

Legalize marijuana yeah
Down here in jamaica yeah
It can build up a failing economy yeah
Eliminate the slavish mentality

So there'll be no more
Illegal humiliation
And no more police
Interrogation

Legalize marijuana
Down here in sweet jamaica
Only cure for glaucoma
I'm an a de bush doctor yeah

And there'll be no more need
To smoke and hide
When you know you're takin'
A legal ride

Legalize marijuana
Down here in Jamaica
It's the only cure for glaucoma
I'm an a de minister...

    General CommentWell after a lot of thinking and analyzing the lyrics I sat quietly for a while trying to figure it out. It was harder than I thought and couldn't find any possible meaning for this song :S after about a week of thinking and trying to figure it out a possible meaning came to mind.. I don't know if I'm right and please correct me if I'm wrong but could this song possibly be about legalizing marijuana?

    Just to make it clear, I was joking about the above part :P it obviously IS about legalizing marijuana :) might I add that they really should legalize it, it would eliminate a lot of health problems with adultered hash and such.. and by the way, this song ROCKS!!

    General CommentWhy all the negativity? The second and third comments were outrageously unnecessary and frankly unprovoked. The message of the song remains clear. One love.

    General CommentThis is "Bush Doctor" by Peter Tosh.

    Yes, he WAS apart of The Wailers but Tosh wrote it and released it when he was running solo so this is by no means a Bob song.
