The Irish
--quote from an Irishman

"The Romans used to wear read shirts to hide the blood in battle. The Irish wear brown pants..."


Funny things to say before they lock you up

"Give me a good beating -- I can't go in lookin' this pretty."


A love song wasted on a leaf.
--Accidental pun, Undisclosed

Sweet Leaf [1]

Alright Now!
Won't you listen?

When I first met you, didn't realise,
I can't forget you or your surprise
You introduced me to my mind
And left me watching you and your kind. Oh yeah

I love you. Oh, you know it.

My life was empty, forever on a down,
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf though you can't hear
Oh yeah

Come on now - try it out!

Straight people don't know what you're about,
They put you down and shut you out
You gave to me a new belief,
And soon the world will love you, sweet leaf
Oh yeah baby

Come on now! Oh yeah!
Try me out baby!
Alright! Oh yeah-ah!
I want you part of this sweet leaf!
Oh yeah!
Alright, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh try me out
I love ya sweet leaf, oh
