The Lyrics

It's so dark, babe, we might freeze here.
All that snow is pearly white.
We got cracked pipes, underneath, dear.
It's gonna be such a long night.

So watch out for frostbite, might freeze ear, babe
Park a pillow on your head.
You'll want some gloves, and socks on feet, babe.
Till the hour power outage has fled.

See the sidewalk--concrete's buckled, uh oh!
White your body, just oozin' ice.
And on my beak I can see hoar frost
Need another type o' cracked pipe.

In a dug moat, there forms a river that's frozen;
Inclement, bad weather is droopin' my crown.
Get demented. . .not much weight, dear,
Five, six centigrams of crack, please, track it down.

Now, bring it here and loosely fill it, right up to here, babe.
Thanks for lightin' up small chunk of my stash.
We can keep, friend, away from the jailer
Because I have laundered all the cash.

Hey, it's a dive in here, oh so spooky, tawdry.
There's a lotta lemurs that I'm shootin' down.
Oops! My sight hallucinates, dear.
Too much crack I've smoked now--'bout a pound

Oh no! Under the divan zooms my tokery;
I feel a lotta things there, like loose change dropped down.
Then lights come back on tonight, babe,
Now those cracked pipes can be found.

Well, JB...kind of hurried it...and still 5 lines left to finish...but : My “thinker’s” blown; for hours I sit; just sighing / Sniff SuperGlue; I’m glowing, I’m so high / Huffed from a bag with some cat from the ghetto / In an alley he collapsed; an overdose / I disappeared and left him there all alone / So damaged, oy, a damaged boy, I had to go / He had succumbed; he lay there many hours dying / ‘Til he was dead, his head would now know peace / The cops will come and find his dead ass lying / Then the coroner will come pick up the ‘meat’ /
