(rhy. fig. 1)

1. We were above, you were standing underneath us
We were not, yet lovers.
Dragons were smoked, bumbles bees were stinging us
I was soon to be crazy

2. We're wearing nothing, nothing but our shadows
Shadows falling down on the beach sand.
Remembering once, out on the beaches we wore
Pineapple grass bracelets.

3. We all are sitting legs crossed 'round a fire.
My yellow flame, she dances.
Taquila drinking, oh, our minds will wonder
To wonderous places.

(rhy. fig. 2)

1. Eat drink and be marry, for tomorrow we'll die.
Eat drink and be marry, for tomorrow we'll die.
'Cause we're tripping billies.

2&3. So why would you care, to get out of this place.
You and me and all our friends, such a happy human race.
