"Howling at the Moon (Sha-La-La)" as written by and Joey Ramone....
Sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la

Ships are docking
Planes are landing
A never ending supply

No more narco
No more gangster
Conservatives can cry

I took the law and threw it away
Cause there's nothing wrong
It's just for play
There's no law, no law anymore
I want to steal from the rich and
Give to the poor

Sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la

It was glowing, glowing, glowing
Glowing in the dark
It was sparkling, sparkling, sparkling
Sparking in the night
I took the law & threw it away
Cause there's nothing wrong
It's just for play

There's no law, no law anymore
I want to steal from the rich and
Give to the poor

Winter turns to summer
Sadness turns to fun
Keep the faith, baby
You broke the rules and won

Sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la

Keep it glowing, glowing,glowing
I'm not hurting anyone
Keep it glowing, smoking, glowing
I'm howling at the moon
I took the law & threw it away
Cause there's nothing wrong
It's just for play
There's no law, no law anymore
I want to steal from the rich and
Give to the poor

Oh baby
Oh baby
Oh baby
Oh baby

I took the law and threw it away
Cause there's nothing wrong
It's just for play

I'm smoking, baby
I'm smoking, oh baby

There's no law, no law anymore
I want to steal from the rich and
Give to the poor

Sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la

    General Commentsweet, this is one my favs by the ramones, when i first heard the song and started listening to it, i was tryin to think what it might be about and the first thing that popped to my head is "it sounds alot like smokin" so wow i guess it really was, thats sweet, heres my pick at the song...

    ok i dont get the "howling at the moon" what that might mean but the lyrics are pretty straight forward

    "ships are docking
    planes are landing
    a never ending supply "

    obviously the large amount of pot and easily accessible drug and virtually endless amounts of it

    "no more narco
    no more gangster
    conservatives can cry"

    sorta sounds like the lust for its legalization, telling the gov to realize it such a minuscule problem compared to even legal substances like cigs and alcohol, to more NARCo's wasting time and money while could be focusing on other worse drugs, and it would decrease gang activity slightly since many gangs operate from selling, and obviously, conservatists wouldnt like the idea of legalizing but fuck them, they can go CRY

    "I took the law & threw it away
    cause there's nothing wrong
    it's just for play"

    again, its obviously illegal so hes breakin the law and as i agree, it is just for fun :)

    "I want to steal from the rich &
    give to the poor "

    : ) something i wanna do too!

    "it was glowing, glowing, glowing
    glowing in the dark
    it was sparkling, sparkling, sparkling
    sparkling in the night"

    reminded me of the glowing cherry on a joint and the sparkiling crystals on marijuana

    "I'm smoking, baby
    I'm smoking, oh baby "

    yup, amazing song & lyrics
