  1. I have heard a rumor that the song CANDY is actually about cocaine. I don’t know if it is true or not. As for songs about narcotics, I also think about:

    1. EBENEEZER GOODE by The Shamen

    At first I thought this song is inspired by the novel A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens. But when I read its lyrics, it is obvious that it is about ecstasy drug, and not about Charles Dickens’ novel.

    There’s a guy in the place
    He’s got a bittersweet face
    And he goes by the name of Ebeneezer Goode
    His friends call him Eezer and he is the main geezer
    And he’ll vibe about the place
    Like no other man could
    He’s refined, sublime, he makes you feel fine
    Though very much maligned and misunderstood
    But if you know Eezer he’s a real crowd pleaser
    He’s ever so good, he’s Ebeneezer Goode
    You can see that he’s mysterious,
    Mischievious and devious
    As he circulates amongst the people in the place
    But once you know he’s fun
    And something of a genius
    He gives a grin that grows around
    From face to face to face
    Backwards and then forwards,
    Forwards and then backwards
    Eezer is the geezer who loves to muscle in
    That’s about the time the crowd
    All shout the name of Eezer
    As he’s kotcheled in the corner,
    Laughing by the bass bin

    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode

    Has anybody got any veras?
    Lovely
    Ya ha ha ha ha ha
    Ya ha ha ha ha ha
    A great philosopher once wrote
    “Naughty naughty very naughty”
    Ha ha ha ha ha
    Ebeneezer Goode, leading light of the scene
    Know what I mean – see
    He created the vibe,
    He takes you for a ride and as if by design
    The party ignites like he’s comin alive
    He takes you to the top, shakes you all around
    Then back down, you know as he gets mellow
    Then as smooth as the groove
    That is making you move
    He glides into your mind with a sunny “Hello!”
    A gentleman of leisure,
    He’s there for your pleasure
    But go easy on old Eezer
    He’s the love you could lose
    Extraordinary fellow, like Mr. Punchinello
    He’s the kind of geezer who must never be abused
    When you’re in town and Ebeneezer is around
    You can sense a presence
    In the sound of the crowd
    He gets them all at it, the party starts rocking
    The people get excited it’s time to shout loud

    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode
    Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode
    He’s Ebeneezer Goode

    Ya ha ha ha
    Ya ha ha ha
    Ha ha ha ha

    Ha ha ha ha
    Wicked

    2. EVERYTHING STARTS WITH AN E – E-ZEE POSSEE
    I think this song is about ecstasy drug.

    3. LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS – The Beatles
    I have heard a rumor that it is about LSD.

    4.NO COKE – Dr. Alban
