George Baker Selection - Little Green Bag

So the story goes:

"Little Green Bag" is a 1969 song written by Dutch musicians, Jan Visser and George Baker (credited as Hans Bouwens), and recorded by the George Baker Selection at the band's own cost. The 7" single debut of the George Baker Selection was released by the label Negram, which misprinted the actual title of the song, which is "Little Green Back (greenback meaning money) and "greenback" is the lyric actually sung. This has caused the song to be misnamed ever since. "Little Green Bag" appeared on the album, Little Green Bag, by the George Baker Selection. Also, the song is included in the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino's film "Reservoir Dogs", and appears in the famous intro scene that leads into the opening credits.

Funny, i always thought it was a about weed...
