The Lyrics

He seeks it here, he seeks it there.
His voice not loud, but do beware.
It's what keeps him from getting what bugs him off his chest,
'Cause he's a medicated swallower of Valium.

So if he's wan and dons a frown,
He may have washed too many down.
He'll do anything for it--means justify the end,
'Cause he's a medicated swallower of Valium.

Diazepam (Diazepam) quiets brainscans (quiets brainscans).
Poppies are just flowers to be sniffed at.
If you can't provide him Valium, get set to fight,
'Cause he gets bellicose when he can't have his palliative.

Diazepam (Diazepam) quiets brainscans (quiets brainscans).
Deny what he loves and there'll be battery.
First he'll poke you in the eye, a prelude to a strike,
'Cause he's a depredating swaggerer sans Valium.

He seeks it here, he seeks it there.
He'll wreak your feet and mess your hair.
He gives you a carnage beating,
Then he marches off
To find men dedicated to his thrall of Valium.

Diazepam (Diazepam) quiets brainscans (quiets brainscans).
His world is built 'round apotheques and pharmas.
His pleasure centers must be quelled so he will stay at rest,
But he's not ready yet to fall back and pop Halcion.
(Potential swallower of methylate--invalid rum.)

Diazepam (Diazepam) quiets brainscans (quiets brainscans).
He flips up his pillbox and finds he's runnin' dry.
In tatters is his sloth and he's as twitchy as can be.
He's an unmedicated hollerer sans Valium,
An unmedicated hollerer sans Valium.
All is predicated on his thrall of Valium.
