The Lyrics

Dedicated to all of you who know your Buprenorphine from your Diamorphine Hydrochloride!!
He's achin' here.he's achin' there
His sickly frame.needs some repair
No sprout-munching hippy reflexologist he'll use
Coz he's a medicated swallower of aspirin

An iller guy.you've never met
He spikes his tea.with Percocet
Loves acetylsalicylic acid with his booze
Man, he's a medicated swallower of aspirin

Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!) Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!)
He thinks that Echinacea is a country
And when he pops those multi-coloured capsules in his mouth
He's so much more than just a swallower of aspirin

Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!) Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!)
With morphine enemas to charge his batteries
Less James Dean, more codiene: paraceta-malcontent
Oh what a medicated swallower of aspirin

He's moanin' here.he's groanin' there
He should be in.intensive care
He tried homeopathy; all he got was the bill
So he's a medicated swallower of aspirin

Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!) Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!)
He's got his picture on the wall at Lilly
His pharmacist just bought a chateau in the South of France
Coz of this medicated swallower of aspirin

Oh yes he is! (oh yes he is!) Oh yes he is! (Oh yes he is!)
He flits from drug to drug just like a butterfly
His analgesic regime makes him rattle like a cage
An overmedicated swallower of aspirin
He's a medicated swallower of aspirin
He's a medicated swallower of aspirin!!

"Less James Dean, more codiene: paraceta-malcontent" is plain brilliant (even if codeine is spelt wrong, paracetamalcontent more than makes up for it ;-) )

hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee - set a cracking pace with the title alone Kristof, and didn't falter - I'd been happy with my attempt at this OS until now - 555 - and ditto about Phil's chosen snippet

One of these days, I'm gonna write that Bush parody, "Dedicated Follower of Fascism." Oh yes he is. Oh yes he is. Until then, this parody will have to do.
