The Lyrics

Malcolm says talwin is better than vicodin. I don't know, but I do know vicodin is nice stuff. Nice stuff. I wish I didn't have to know that, but that's what I get. Brush your teeth, people! As Mickey Mantle would say, "This is a role model? Don't be like me!" And for God's sake, take it in moderation. It's easy to get hooked on stuff like this, as we have seen from others.
If you search for pharmacies, they aren't hard to find.
You can have the drugs you need to live.
But if you get prescriptions wrong, you might just become quite blind.
Make sure the one you want to get, they give!

Vicodin! It's such a lovely drug.
Everyone will know it's true.
Vicodin will make the pain get mugged.
It's mostly what I need from you.

I can always find a doc to say he'll sympathize
and put an IV tube right up my sleeve.
But I don't want some pretty nurse to tell me pretty lies.
She can be ugly if this stuff she'll leave:

Vicodin! It's such a lovely drug.
Everyone will know it's true.
Vicodin will make the pain get mugged.
It's mostly what I need from you.

I can find some morphine! Find some percodan!
I can have some methadone, even OxyContin!
Anyone can comfort me with analgesics, then
I know (I know), I know, whoa-whoa-whoa...

When it's deep inside of me, don't get too concerned.
I won't ask a refill when it's gone.
But when I've got severity, tell me, where else can I turn?
'Cause that's the drug that I depend upon!

Vicodin! It's such a lovely drug!
Everyone will know it's true.
Vicodin will make the pain get mugged!
It's mostly what I need from you.

Billy Joel does like those "whoa-whoa-whoa"s. Long live doo-wop.

Michael, this is a very good parody--doesn't seem like an easy original song to do, either-I know the song, never tried to write a parody of it--not going to try to compete with yours.

Since Phil Nelson didn't authorize comments for his song "Have I Told You Lately You're a Good Drug?" I'll use the comments board for my own song of a similar theme: Good job, Phil! Maybe we can get ten other posters and do a concept album on the subject.
