Song Description

Light hearted saga of a devout pot smoker set to Latin Guajira groove. Track features an overdriven Santana-esque rock guitar part with a psychedelic segue sonically reminiscent of a Jimi Hendrix meets the Chambers Brothers treatment.

Story Behind the Song

Song was written in response to a listing on Broadband soliciting material for a documentary about a reunion tour for two comedians. The stylistic description called for material from the late 60's-early 70's ala groups like War and other West Coast group


Chorus (Spanish)

El marijuanero, anda buscando
La cosa
El marijuanero, anda buscando
Es la mota que le gosa
El marijuanero,


From morning 'til late at night
It's Bambu and Zig Zag white
From morning 'til late at night
He's mellow, never gets uptight
Reefer is all he needs
That's why he lives and breathes
If he runs out of weed
He smokes the stems and seeds

Chorus (English)

El marijuanero, he goes loco
without a toke-o
El Marijuanero, he's got no dough
all his money's up in smoke-o
El Marijuanero


He's getting hungry now
He's ready for some chow
He's getting hungry now
He's craving some cupcakes now
He's herbally devout
The ganja's what he's all about
He's herbally devout
Now he's laughing and tripping out
