It's a nifty bit of editing, rather than a song as such.
I knew I'd heard the phrase "smoke trees" somewhere amongst the youngsters at work or in the pub, but having done a search, it's actually quite a common phrase. There's a lot of songs about it, mostly rubbish. I thought bragging about substance abuse was a long gone thing.
I actually only knew the parodies of this until now.
TreesBY JOYCE KILMER
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Imagine; a grown adult wrote this, and people took him seriously. Years before Hallmark cards were a thing.
