Peter Tosh - Bush Doctor

Warning!
The Surgeon General warns
Cigarette smoking is dangerous, dangerous
Hazard to your health
Does that mean anything to you?

To legalize marijuana, yeah
Right here in Jamaica, yeah
Them say it cure glaucoma, yeah
I-man a the Bush Doctor, yeah

So there'll be
No more smokin'
And feelin' tense
When I see them a come
I don't have to jump no fence

Legalize marijuana, yeah
Down here in Jamaica, yeah
Only cure for asthma, yeah
I-man a the minister, yeah

So there'll be no more, police brutality
No more disrespect for humanity

Legalize marijuana, yeah
Down here in Jamaica, yeah
It can build up a failing economy, yeah
Eliminate the slavish mentality, yeah

So there'll be no more illegal, humiliation
And no more police interrogation

Legalize marijuana
Down here in sweet Jamaica
Only cure for glaucoma
I-man a the Bush Doctor, yeah

(..)

And there'll be
No more need to smoke and hide
When you know you're takin' a legal ride

So legalize marijuana
Down here in Jamaica
It's the only cure for glaucoma
I-man a the minister, yeah
