Field of Dreams


Ganja euphoria

Many of us used to scoff when Rasta tek

A puff a de good green stuff, while encouraging

Us to be religious, but back den government

Seh Rasta nuh have sense, so dem dismiss

Argument dat ganja is a religious sacrament

Babylon get scurrilous and put rasta inna

Han’ cuff fi position of de good green stuff


All of a sudden everybody a attend de wedding

De hot topic in de US, Caribbean and odda tropics, dem mus hav it dis stimulant,

Criticised, ostracised, stigmatised and demonised

Rasta and many others penalised

Now dem wah decriminalised

But de profits is dem main prize

All dem a discuss head a government still fraid fi publicly tek a puff a de good green stuff


Pandemonium, farma abandon scallion and onion

A pure ganja dem wah pon de lan’ fi mek money from

Some a cuss, some a rush fi put dem han pon ganja fuss

But dem still naaw discuss de benefit of a puff,

Dem only wah mek money nuff nuff

By pretending dat a dem si ganja fuss

Dem a de reincarnation of Christopher Columbus
