Have you heard the word about the herb superb? You can take it from an Okka like me
You take one toke for a bit of a joke ... and you’re out of your Coolabah tree
Then the bloke next door wants to call the cops 'cause you smile and you’re feelin’ happy
So you plant a few seeds, and you grow a few weeds
And the world don’t look so crappy ... Talk about

CHORUS
Marijuana, Australiana
Cheaper than grog, safer than pills ... Make you sing like Frank Sinatra
Marijuana Australiana
Greatest craze since the disco days ... You can buy it from your nearest farmer!

Now I was layin’ a rave on this cocky one day about changin’ a few of our laws
I said, “You know they arrest some folks with pot and they lock ‘em up indoors!”
He said “Serves ‘em right for smokin’ that dope it leads to the harder stuff!”
And then I found he was growin’ a whole plantation .cause life on the land’s a bit tough!
Growin’ that

CHORUS ( ... Make you sing like Johnny Farnham)

Now the drug squad usually have the best they pinch it from the people they bust
And they’ll sell you some for a nice old profit if you can find one you can trust
And apart from that all the doctors and pubs have to keep up the country’s tax
But when your pills and your booze start to rot your old body there’s a much better way to relax
Talkin’ ‘bout

CHORUS ( ... Make you sing like Kate Ceberana)

Now there was a time not long ago when smokin’ a joint was fine
But don’t get caught with dope these days it’s become a hanging crime
They got helicopter gun-ships, video trail bikes, four wheel drives in line
While the smack rolls in, in container ships and no bugger even gets fined
Talkin’ ‘bout

CHORUS ( ... Make you sing like La Stupenda)



Written Albert Park Victoria March 1975 … later made into a cult hit by the Bushwackers

With many thank to the songwriter for lyrics.
