The Lyrics

A song about the acceptable face of drug addiction....
Quaaludes, to slow me down
And some Prozac to get me going
A bottle of Scotch to wash it all down
I'll hit the town just like a Boeing

Quaaludes to get me through
One more s**t day that I'll be battlin'
Some codiene, or Percocet for the pain
It's not the train, it's me that's rattlin'...

And anytime I'm feeling ill, I pop a pill
Don't call me an addict, it's prescription
Seems all I get is attitude from them and you
Just leave me alone and stop your b!tchin'..

Quaaludes from my GP
He's a good guy, so understandin'
Provides me the medications I mix
I'll get that fix that I'm demandin'

So I go out; a drinking spree- I'm offered E
Or charlie from dodgy backstreet dealer
But don't you know that stuff's bad's drug abuse
I think that I'll have one more tequila..

Quaaludes are not so bad
Take a small pill and you'll feel better
I need them; stop telling me to withdraw
I'll take one more..the world's much better better better better better better ahhh!

Na na na na na na na, na na na na...Quaaludes!

ABC Q - Already voted for this one, still find it addictive, and the new Google adds are adds to the fun! :-)

Q05- Methaqualone (Quaaludes) has been schedule 1 in the US for a long time now, they still make these in the UK? Oxycontin is the new Quaalude here (Hillybilly heroin as the press likes to call it- nasty stuff). Anyway, great parody Kristof. 5s.

I liked it, but i don' like those kind of drugs. Not that I have much experience with that, but I got tricked into taking tylenol with codeine ater I had a wisdom tooth pulled... didn't like it. I thought the third and fifth verses were the best, but what's Charlie?

Well written, Kristof. I didn't realize how long you've been on the site. Glad you kept writing.

Wow guys what the f***, Charlie is cocaine, C in the military alphabet is Charlie hence the substitute, you wouldn't go up to a dealer at a bar and say, "Hey bro, got any cocaine?!" Loved the song bro.
