Don't need no reefer, don't need cocaine
Purple music does the same 2 my brain & 'm high
So high
Don't need no cymbals, no saxophone
Just need 2 find me a style of my own & 'm high
So high
Some people can't understand
Just bein' inside a church don't make a righteous man, U'r high
So high
N time we all die, all music gone
So we better try our best 2 get along & get high
Mmm, so high, oh

Ain't got no theory, ain't got no rules
just let the purple music tell my body what 2 do & 'm high
Oh, so high, mm
Every subject, any key
Purple music can't B judged, it happens naturally, it's alright
Alright, oh

We'll find a serpent 2 sacrifice
We'll make a wish & then we'll kiss N purple paradise, we get high
Yes we will, so high
Don't need no reefer, don't need cocaine
Purple music does the same 2 my brain & 'm high
Mmm, so high
Next page...
Don't want reaction, just want the act
It's easier 2 give love than it is 2 give it back cuz 'm high
Oh, so high

Mmm oh...
Don't need no reefer, don't need cocaine
Purple music does the same 2 my brain & 'm high
Oh... mmmm
Don't need no cymbals, no saxophone
Just need 2 find me a style of my own & 'm high
Oh...

So high

Don't need no reefer, don't need cocaine
Purple music does the same 2 my brain & 'm high
So high
We'll find a sacrifice 2 get some purple paradise
So nice, purple paradise is so nice
