Sielun Veljet – Evil Kübl

Älyämpäristä kertova biisi

“Put the chillum in the bottle
And the bottle in the water
And the water in the bucket
And the bucket on the table
Put the bottle with no bottom
On the bottom of the bucket

If you wanna have a smoke
You wanna have a better smoke
You never ever had before
You gotta use a new machine
It’s an Evil Kübl

Give the light, lift up
Chillum off, breathe in!”

Nick Drake – Been Smoking Too Long

Well I wake up in the morning
Look at my clock
It’s way past noon time
Now I’m late for work.

Tell me, tell me
What have I done wrong?
Ain’t nothing go right with me
Must be I’ve been smoking too long.

Well I go to find me some breakfast
But I ain’t got no food
Take me a shower
But the water don’t feel no good.

Tell me…

I’ve got opium in my chimney
No other life to choose
Nightmare made of hash dreams.
Got the devil in my shoes

Tell me…

Well when I’m smoking
Put my worries on a shelf
Don’t think about nothin’
Try not to see myself.

Tell me…

Well in this blues I’m singin’
There’s a lesson to be learned
Don’t go around smokin’
Unless you want to get burned.

Tell me…

Rodriguez – Sugar Man

Amerikkalaisen folk-laulajan, Rodriguezin, Sugar Manista tuli pieni hitti esimerkiksi Australiassa, vaikkakin Amerikassa hän on jäänyt hyvinkin tuntemattomaksi.

“Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘cos i’m tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear
Sugar man ‘cos i’m weary
Of those double games l hear

Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘cos i’m tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear”

Hoyt Axton – Snowblind Friend

“You say it was this mornin’ when you last saw your good friend
Lyin’ on the sidewalk with the misery on his brain
Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall
Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall

He only had a dollar to live on ‘till next Monday
But he spent it all on comfort for his mind
Did you say you think he’s blind?

Someone should call his parents or a sister or a brother
And they’ll come and take him back home on a bus
But he’ll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother
And he’ll always be another one of us

He said he wanted heaven but prayin’ was too slow
So he bought a one-way ticket on an airline made of snow
Did you say you saw your good friend flyin’ low

You say it was this mornin’ when you last saw your good friend
Lyin’ on the sidewalk with the misery on his brain
Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall
Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall

Did you say you saw your good friend flyin’ low
Dyin’ slow
Blinded by snow”
