"Little Green Bag" as written by Hans Bouwens and Jan Visser....
Yeah
Lookin' back on the track for a little green bag
Got to find just a kind or losin' my mind
Outside in the night, outside in the day

Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way
Outside in the night, outside in the day
Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way
Lookin' back

Lookin' for some happiness
But there is so a loneliness to find
Turn to the left turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs lookin' behind

Lookin' for some happiness
But there is so a loneliness to find
Turn to the left turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs lookin' behind

Lookin' back on the track for a little green bag
Got to find just a kind or losin' my mind
Outside in the night, outside in the day
Lookin' back on the track gonna do it my way

Lookin' back on the track for a little little green bag
Got to find just a kind or losin' my mind
Lookin' for some happiness
But there is so a loneliness to find

Turn to the left turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs lookin' behind
Lookin' for some happiness
But there is so a loneliness to find

Turn to the left turn to the right
Lookin' upstairs lookin' behind

    General CommentThis song is equivalent to "Reservoir Dogs" and the genius Tarantino himself! Apparantly, he sits down with his CD collection and goes through the songs which actually construct the storyline of the movies themselves! How's that for cool? Food for thought too... Hehe, bet everyone of us would be going, "Hey, *I* can do that!"

    General CommentAbout it's meaning, I've always thought it's about a bag of marihuana... think about it... a little green bag.

    The guy is singing to a green bag to help him cope with his loneliness, in the search, looking back on a track, being jumpy (as if being followed, doing something illegal). Add the hippie era context and it makes perfect sense.

    It's a great song, specially for its now unseparable relation to Reservoir Dogs, such a great yet simple movie.

    But, on a couple of side notes, I have to add that here, in my country (Chile) this song was used for an advertising campaign for a realy mediocre TV soap opera, copying the whole Reservoir Dogs walking-titles begining... Machos (Studs) ( imdb.com/title/tt0374415/ ), and 'till this day I'm still fighting my mind from jumping to that shocking memories whenever I hear it. I find myself repeating "Tarantino, Tarantino, Tarantino..."

    And the other side note, an anecdote. The first time I heard this song I swear I thought it was a latin excuse for a singer ( Luis Miguel ) doing some english, actually good song... I was almost killed by my friend when I commented her that this guy was doing his first interesting tune. After that, we looked for some happines and went Pa pa pa pa pa pa ....

    General Comment"C'mon, throw in a buck!"

    "Uh-uh, I don't tip"

    "You don't tip? "

    "Nah, I don't believe in it."

    "You don't believe in tipping?"

    "You know what these chicks make? They make sh*t"

    "Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit"

    "I don't even know a f*cking Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?"

    "I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job"

    "Hey, our girl was nice"

    'She was okay. She wasn't anything special"

    "What's special? Take you in the back and suck your d*ck?"

    "I'd go over twelve percent for that"

    General Comment"Are you gonna bark all day little bunny? Or are you gonna bite?"

    I believe the line is "Are you gonna bark all day little doggy?" hence the use of "bark". I don't know what bunnies you have seen in your time.
