You'se a Viper/If You're a Viper/The Reefer Song
Dreamed about a reefer five feet long.
Mighty Mezz, but not too strong.
You'll be high but not for long
If you're a viper.

I'm the king of everything.
I've got to be high before I can swing.
Light a tea and let it be
If you're a viper.

When your throat get dry,
You know you're high
Everything is dandy
Truck on down to the candy store
Bust your konk on peppermint candy

Then you know that you're body's spent.
You don't care if you don't pay rent.
Sky is high and so am I
If you're a viper.
