Sativa is a pretty plant
and it grows tall and green
with sixty-six canny-abinoids
and the spicey, sweet terpenes
Guy says I can market this
I’ll put it in a spray
Grinspoon says, it grows in the ground
why should people have to pay too much?

[wpspoiler name=”Lyrics” ]Sativa is a pretty plant
and it grows tall and green
with sixty-six canny-abinoids
and the spicey, sweet terpenes
Guy says I can market this
I’ll put it in a spray
Grinspoon says, it grows in the ground
why should people have to pay too much?

Guy says some prefer it neat
and some don’t like the high
Grinspoon says the government
won’t even let ’em try
Euphoria’s a side effect
that could do some people good
Guy says I’m all for you, Les
Please don’t let me be misunderstood.

We’re dealing with a System
That is not about to change
Grinspoon says Why not
reinvent the Grange?
And let a thousand farmers grow
All them helpful strains
Guy says my approval
hasn’t been easy or cheap to almost obtain

Sativex is a useful drug
and it bears the Bayer cross
Grinspoon shakes the bottle
With a subtle sense of loss
You’re right from your side
and I am right from mine
We’re just one too many markets
and the wide green Atlantic behind
