The version presented by Steve is the one I heard sung around Melbourne in the late 60s and early 70s.

Those times being what they were, another chorus became popular,
viz.

Dope, D\dope, glorious dope;
in pipes or in chillums it gives the world hope.
Some folks likes alcohol, some likes a grope,
but give I ten dimsims and a greasy hamburger,
a great block of chocolate
and an ounce of good dope!

Cheers, Rowan
