The Lyrics

Here we come,
Shootin' up some horse.
We get the funniest track marks
With our needle sores,

Hey, Hey, we're the junkies!
Heroin is what we prefer.
More than crack and acid,
Never liked smokin’ refer,

Frank Sinatra’s the man,
With the golden arm,
Jim Morrison ODed,
Horse did him harm,
Hey, hey, we're the Junkies,
Kurt Cobain, just had enough,
Fame he just couldn’t cope with,
Or was it just Courtney Love.

We’re just trying to get Rehabbed,
Like Amy Winehouse said,
We’re the smack generation,
Trainspotting leaving us dead…


People ask,
What we got in school,
On our report cards,
We say, “A bit of drool”.

Hey, hey, we're the Junkies,
William S. Burroughs is cool
Just like Charlie Parker
Jack Kerouac was a fool.

(break)

Hey, hey, we're the Junkies
Janis Joplin ODed
In her LA hotel room,
Horse is bad, hope you’ll concede,

We're just goin’ cold turkey,
Come and watch us havin' the shakes,
We're the smack generation,
Attending too many wakes,

Hey, hey, we're the Junkies,
Hey, hey, we're the Junkies
[repeat and fade]

The doper mentality is the same everywhere, whether the user is smoking "coffin nails" or looking to score "Len Bias Cocaine" or a hit of "Fatal Beauty". Guess I'll be on my way to knock down a couple 64 oz Coca-Cola's and a full-size Hershey bar or two.

A truly funny parody! Back in the 60's, middle American pre-teens didn't know anything about drugs, so we used to sing "Hey hey, we're the Drunkees"! One interesting thought...if you remember, the Monkees made a feature length movie titled "Head". ;D

Patrick, Coke and Hershey bars--is that like a speedball? Ribber, yes, the Monkees were cooler than their image.

Oops, I just found out that Chumbawumba has a song with the same title; not like my version at all though: http://s0.ilike.com/play#Chumbawamba:Hey+Hey+We%27re+the+Junkies+%28LP+Version%29:17789334:m802823
