Making plants illegal is dumb. Please insert "ha ha ha ha" in your mind after the "there ought to be a law". No, really.


Something invading my lawn
It's like my grass is all gone
A sea of yellow reaching to the sun
When the wind blows, I share with every one.
Ain't nothing dandy going on. Sing.
There ought to be a law

Ragweed brings a tear to my eye
Pain, every second goes by
Won't somebody tell me why, why, why?
You know it makes me want to die, die, die
When I can't take anymore... I scream
"There ought to be a law."

It's a bad weed - blowin my way
Came from a bad seed - wreckin my day
It's a bad weed - you know it's no fun
Came from a bad seed - you better tell everyone

Poison Oak, poison Ivy
You wonder how? Wonder "Why me?"
Itch my nose and my toes and my ear
Itching in the kitchen, itch in the rear
Don't want no itchin no more
there ought to be a law

It's a bad weed - on the lace of my shoe
Came from a bad seed - every thing that I do
It's a bad weed - it can happen to you
came from a bad seed - gonna make you feel blue

I'm waiting for a swat team to circle my house
Chopper, spotlight..better not open my mouth
Megaphone voice says "you better give yourself up"
"What's going on?", "What's growing in your lawn?"

Now you're pickin a sticky, sticky burr
Stuck on my shoe and stuck on your fur
Stuck on him, stuck on her
All this stickin, you know it's upsurd
Can't take no stickin no more
There ought to be a law

It's a bad weed - stuck on my cloths
Came from a bad seed - you know it's stuck on your hose
It's a bad weed - Probably happen to you
Came from a bad seed - you can make a law too..

that's bad. So bad.
It's a bad weed.
