The Lyrics

i was strapped unto a gurney
they were lookin' for signs of life
they were tubes and wires and doctor things
in an ambulance, we zing
i thought that i'd get just a slight little buzz
here i am, wildly plowed
i took a shot...and then down went i
unaware, i hit the ground

you see, i'm into depressants
but this horse is insane
i was good and knocked out in my brain
on depressants, i can't remember my name
but it ain't much fun if near-death is obtained
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?

after two days, being moribund
i cringed from pain in my head
after three days, i was still quite stunned
but was looking to get out of bed
when my story was told...though, the doctors all scold
they were glad to see me not dead

you see, i'm into depressants
but this horse is insane
i was good and knocked out in my brain
on depressants, i can't remember my name
but it ain't much fun if near-death is obtained
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?

after nine days, they let my ass go free
if i promised to let horse be
there are 'ludes and booze and lots of things
if i have to have a fling
the poppy holds a pleasure like no other around
but there's danger for those who love
its such a pity, that it makes me unsound
guess i'll stick to the other stuff

you see, i'm into depressants
but this horse is insane
i was good and knocked out in my brain
on depressants, i can't remember my name
but it ain't much fun if near-death is obtained
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?
wha wha...wha...wha wha wha wha...wha wha wha...wha wha ?

I seem to learn a lot on this site. A person can have an antidepressant habit? Didn't think it was possible. Good and informative..; ) 5's

flowed beautifully, alvin, and I loved the "I'm into depressants" sub - 555
2Eagle - August 18, 2006 - Report this comment
It sounds as weird as the original song - 555. By the way, I looked up your parody of "If You Go Away" - check that out.

Very funny, you might say it 'smacked' me upside the head! Scanned well too...and I agree with 2Eagle, your OS pick was perfect for the meth-a-physical nature of your material.

I love any song that's pro anti-depressant, they're what make the world go 'round. I love the title too, very misleading, the song definately wasn't what I was expecting.

Before I compliment you profusely, Alvin, I need to set Pat straight (YOU should be doing this! :-)) Pat..."horse" is a street term for heroin, it's a depressant (slows down your body's functions), not an ANTIdepressant. There ya go, you've learnt something else new today.
Back to Alvin; gee, there were some clever subs here, and a good message humourously put. Big 555

You got this one cold, you turkey. (I was REALLY hoping no one has used that one yet.) Five doses of methadone.

It's fortunate that I detest TOS and give all parodies of it 5s, because the topic hit too close to home for me.
