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!

  1. I loved this little ditty too.

    But I don't think it was modeled on a song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang... it reminds me of Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious (sp?) from Mary Poppins.

  2. This musical number was based directly upon the song, Me Ole Bamboo, from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as seen here on YouTube.
