A term which describes marijuana. The name comes directly from the first track on Black Sabbath's 1971 album Master of Reality entitled Sweet Leaf.
In the song (which has a very catchy riff, and may be considered some early stoner metal), Ozzy Osbourne sings of the wonders found in smoking grass.
1. Bassist: "You mates want to get stoned and play some music?"
Guitarist: "Fuckin' A. Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back?"
2. Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath basically got me into stoner music.
Black Sabbath song, Sweet Leaf about marijuana, ganja, hemp ect.
Won't you listen?
When I first met you, didn't realize
I can't forget you, for your supriSe
you introduced me, to my mind
And left me wanting, you and your kind
I love you, Oh you know it
My life was empty forever on a down
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf, though you can't hear
Come on now, try it out
Straight people don't know, what your about
They put you down and shut you out
you gave to me a new belief
and soon the world will love you sweet leaf
