Bag of Weed

The funniest musical number that Family Guy has done in a long time. Combining a pro-pot message with a musical dance number from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Only Seth MacFarlane. Brilliant. Originally aired on FOX Sunday April 19, 2009.


UPDATE:
Unfortunately, the video was removed from Hulu. But here are the lyrics:

[Stewie: If you want to win people over, you can't just drone on like Ben Stein, you've got to have a little more showmanship. Here, watch:]

Now everybody gather round and listen if you would
When I tell you every person needs a way of feeling good
Every kitty needs a ball of string
And every dog a stick
But all you need is a bag of weed to really get a kick

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight!

A bag of weed, a bag of weed
Oh everything is better with a bag of weed
It's the only help that you'll ever need
Because everything is better with a bag of weed

[Stewie: There you go, you're all gettin' it now!]

When Texas people wanna feel good
They go assault a queer
When stupid people need a thrill
They rent "The Rocketeer"
When Michael Jackson needs a rush
He humps a guy like me (Hooray!)
But all we need is a bag of weed to keep us worry-free

One, two, three, ho!

A bag of weed, a bag of weed
Oh everything is better with a bag of weed
Oh you don't need meth and you don't need speed
Because everything is better with a bag of weed

[Stewie: Have a go, Brian!]

As Mister H.L. Mencken said, "The common man's a fool"
And just like Helen Keller said, "Goof googie beeba bool"
But try and use your heads and don't buy in to all the fear (Hey!)
'Cause all we need is a bag of weed to make us want to cheer

And one, two...!

A bag of weed, a bag of weed
Oh everything is better with a bag of weed
You can try and fight but we're all agreed
Because everything is better with a bag of weed

[extended music and dance interlude]

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
And a one, two, three, four, and a five, and a six, and a seven, ho!

A bag of weed, a bag of weed
Oh everything is better with a bag of weed
You're a happy guy when you plant the seed
Because everything is better with a bag... of... weed
Oh everything is better with a bag of weed!
