You found a way into my heart in the dark of night Oh how can I fight when you’ve entered into my dreams You appear in there clouded by mists of which I cannot part And leave me drenched in the sweat of my fears, tears of loneliness they do seem Oh why do you haunt me and how do you know Where in my dream time I will go What is your reason and what does it mean Why do you haunt me in my dreams You own my heart of which a part awaits in the night Despite this you are a mystery, an enigma unto me Now that you’ve conquered me in the unseen Will you come to life outside of my dreams? But then when I wake up, baby you’re not there Even though you haunt me, I know you cannot care Because when I wake up, you’re not what you seem Even though you haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Even though you touch my heart and touch me in my dreams Even though you haunt me, haunt me in my dreams

Oh don’t ya know what this little bit of green can do? Relaxing vibe, medicinal uses too Saving lives & clearing skies By growing it as our fuel It’s a miracle, but even if it’s not What gives the man the right to keep it from growing in my pot? This idiocy has brought our world to its knees I say string him up nice and high sweet revenge for & by the trees When you live by the leaf, you’re living life as it were No crowds, no scenes, no big machines, a blessing from the Earth But if you live by the leaf, it might lure you away From what it is you’re moving toward and hold you in its sway I think that we all realize That the time has come to legalize And let this gift of the Earth grow free From the laws of you and me But I think that we also need to realize That wisdom is the greatest prize And will keep us from treating this wondrous weed As just another commodity It’s a sacrilege to use this sacrament simply as a substance So use a little wisdom in the way you use the weed

I’m a looking for my pot of platinum at the end of the moonbow And I’m wondering if now you know, baby, do you want to go? So they say there’s saner way to live/better way to live/be So they say, so we’ll see... So I say that’s no the way for me/that doesn’t matter to me... Ya see I’m trying ta make my own in my own way baby Some might say it’s silly but I’m betting on a better day When I get to the end of the moonbow, baby, I hope you’re there with me Cause when we get to the end of the moonbow, baby, there’ll be so much to see When we get to the end of the moonbow, baby, we’ll surely find a better life to lead So when I get to the end of the moonbow, baby, I hope you’re there with me I’m a looking for my pot of platinum at the end of the moonbow And I’m wondering if now you know, baby, do you want to go... Ya see I’m loving every minute of this moment that I’m living in Do you wanna take a ride in this sled that I’ve been sailing in? I’m a sun worshipper, a moon worshipper, and the stars, I praise the stars with all my heart...

lyrics I ain’t talkin’ bout no stargate I jus’ wanna see, um, some booties shake My mission is to make this house quake So let’s drop the bomb, the smartbomb and a funkin’ good time we’ll make Smartbomb Get yo’ ass on the dance floor Isn’t that what you came here for I’ssa tryin’ ta get you all to move So come on and a catch my groove I ain’t talkin’ bout nothin’ that’s gonna hurt no one I just wanna see my people havin’ fun I’m a wishin’ that the women would, uh, move their buns So let’s drop the bomb, the smartbomb and a get down on the one Sike yo’ mind yo’ booty shine
