Bobby and me are lookin' to score
We're in needlepark city on some second floor
There's a party tonight. we got weed we got wine
Bobby's laughin' in spite of the fact we can't find
THE CONNECTION

Harvest the seed day after day
Children to feed, warlords to pay
Wait for the jingle truck from kandahar
Pray for mercy and luck. These are bad men who guard
THE CONNECTION

Out at the mudwall 20' high
On the plains north of kabul there's chaos to buy
Poppies that pay for the taliban guns
A purchase made possible with money from
THE CONNECTION

(instrumental)

Onboard a freighter, 10 days at sea
A suitcase created for our destiny
A bonus, a gift from the opium trade
A wake-up call if we still haven't made
THE CONNECTION

Bobby and me, we're just lookin to score
We got what we need but we think we need more
There's a party tonight; we got dope we got cake
And somebody somewhere is hopin' we make
THE CONNECTION
