"The Farm Yard Connection" as written by Lynval Golding, Terry Hall and Neville Egunton Staples....
Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

What's your names? (Peter and Paul)
What's your age? (we're 23)
Where do you live? (we live on the farm)
What do you do? (we plant weed)

We gotta do what we do 'cause we can't draw dole
We've gotta earn our living
But every time the drug squad come in and shoot
Bam goes another week's wages, Bam goes another week's food

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

What happened next? (policemen come)
What did they do? (they make a raid)
What did you do? (we stood still)
What did they do? (they drove away)

We try to sleep in the fields to protect our weed
We've gotta earn our living
And when the law soon come and took away our weed
Bam went another week's wages, Bam went the family's feed

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection

A-hey diddle diddle, policemen on the fiddle
He sold off the drugs to the man in the middle
He put it on the plane for Heathrow central
It was picked up by a hippie in a Hertz car rental
Drove it into town and split it up in parcels
Sold it to his friends at an ethnic party
He talked about life, but missed all the points, points, points, points, points, points, points
He sat crossed legged and passed around the joint
So they inhaled the West Indian export
They talked about life but missed all the points, points, points, points, points, points, points

Meanwhile back on the farm
We're still working hard
We've got deadlines to meet
We're rushed off our feet

We've got to replant the field, it takes nine months to grow
And we've gotta earn our living
But if the crops don't show, we're gonna starve
Bam goes another year's wages, goodbye to life on the farm

Farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
At the farm yard connection
