Sweet Leaf

All right now, won’t you listen?
When I first met you, didn’t realize,
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 and 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, cry 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.
