Lyrics

Clove Doper

Written By: The S.I.G.I.T.

There's a man plead a friendly plea
Who drinks coffee rather than tea
I've been listening to his prophecy
And I don't need another

He smokes super fine clove cigarette

There's a man fights for demand
Where I could never win a game
My fist's to protect
My hug's to attack
How could you tell me who's to blame

World is full of amateur
They're acting like a pro
If I could talk like a holyman
Can I be a canonist too?
