About the song
This is a song about a wonderful place in Vancouver, British Columbia. Some things change over time, and I'm happy to say that at least we will be seeing more places like this open up around North America. Spark it up and pass it this way!

Studio version on "We Just Want The World"
Lyrics
I wish I was up in Vancouver
At the Cannabis Cafe
Smoking good old sensemelia
At the beginning of the day

But here I am in New York City
Hiding out in Central Park
Getting kidnapped by the police
Today sometime before dark

But I wish I was up in Vancouver...

The judge looked down upon me, frowing
He said, "kid, get on your way
"Just don't start out your morning
"With espresso and a j"

I said I wish I was up in Vancouver...

I hitched a ride out to Portland
Caught one up to B.C.
Took a bus over to Hastings Street
To have a bowl with my coffee

Now I'm up in Vancouver...
