lyrics

Fume y fume cantaba la rana
y echaba los polvos de la marihuana (2x)

(Smoke, smoke, sang the frog
as he blew out the dust of the marijuana.) (2x)

Marihuana tuvo un hijito 
y le pusieron San Espidito
como era abogado de los de Santa Ana,
porque era sazón para la marihuana. (2x)

(Marijuana had a little son
and they named him San Espedito,
and he was the lawyer for Santa Ana`s followers,
because he was really seasoned for the marijuana.) (2x)

Marihuana, ya no puedo ni
levantar la cabeza,
con los ojos retecolorados
y la boca reseca, reseca. (2x)

(Marijuana, I can no longer raise my head,
with my eyes so very red
and my mouth so very dry.) (2x)

______________________________

Fume, fume, la grenouille chantait
alors qu’il soufflait la fumée de la marijuana

Marijuana a eu un petit-fils
et ils le nommérent Saint Expédit,
et il était l'avocat pour les adeptes de Sainte Anne,
parce qu'il était très chevronné de la marijuana.

Marijuana, je ne peux plus lever la tête,
avec mes yeux si rouge
et ma bouche si sèche.

about

Orkestar Kriminal Montreal, Québec

Along with their Yiddish gangster repertoire, Orkestar Kriminal has absorbed the Rebetika Mortika hash den anthems of the 1930s Greek underground. They can also be found performing in Khmer, Spanish, Danish, Romani, Ladino, Russian, Vietnamese, Hebrew or whatever other tongue might attract them. So long as the tune is catchy and a little shady, they'll give it their best shot! ... more
