Alright now! Won't you listen? When I first met you, didn't realize I can’t forget you or your surprise You introduced me to my mind And left me wanting you and your kind Oh, yeah 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, Oh, yeah Come on now Try it out Straight people don’t know what you’re 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 Oh yeah, baby
- The tape-looped coughing in the beginning of the song is that of Tony Iommi after Ozzy gave him a joint.
- The title of the song is taken from a Irish cigarette package with the slogan "It's the sweet leaf".
