The Lyrics

CIBA-Geigy earns over $350 million a year from Ritalin sales. Of 2,993 adverse reaction (AR) reports concerning "Ritalin" or "methylphenidate" listed by the FDA's Division of Pharmacovigilance and Epidemiology (DPE), from 1990 to 1997, there were: 160 deaths and 569 hospitalizations - 36 of them life-threatening.
Oh, yeah! All right!
We're drugin' an pushing
I got some Ritalin for you
We're drugin', drugin' an pushing
And I hope you like Addarall, too.
Ooh, yeah! All right!

Take da pills, take em now, you cant do with out em right now
Da pill's gonna see ya through
Cos everyday you pay the price it is really so nice
Druggin you till you're blue

Ciba-Geigy makes da rules, 2.5 million children on it now
They got the juice to see em through
Cos the parents pay the price an a little yellow pill will suffice
Druggin' the kid to get through

We druggin
To think druggin' was a thing of the past-
We're pushing
And we hope this dosing is gonna last

No lobbyists can stop us now; we wont kill this cash cow
Ciba-Geigy can't be bought nor sold
We all defend the right; the children can't unite
Your scripts are worth much more than gold

We're druggin' (drugin, drugin, drugin)
And we're drugin in the name of the AMA
We're druggin'' (druggin', druggin', druggin')
We're druggin' with backing from the AMA

Yeh! Holy Cash Cow
Holly Cash Cow
Just sittin' on a Holy Cash Cow
Ciba-Geigy rules all Creation

Yeah, we're - we're drugin' (methylphenidate)
One hundred and sixty deaths and we're pushin' (methylphenidate)
Let us put your kid on it too
We drugin' (pushin', dosin', drugin')
569 hospitalizations but our pushin' days are not yet though

Druggin's about our pride and it the truth that we hide
To keep our investors satisfied
The truth that exists is the truth that Ciba-Geigy resists
To keep the cash flowing in

We're druggin' (druggin', druggin', druggin'), (methylphenidate)
I wanna push a script on you
We're druggin'', we're druggin'', we're druggin'', we're druggin''
We're druggin', we're druggin'', we're druggin', we're druggin'
Hope you love the AMA like we do.

I stumbled on this while trying to find information on Addarall. Good Lord. Yeh, the pills just jump up into people's oral cavities by osmosis and wreak havoc. Come on, it ain't the pills' faults, its the misuse and abuse of them by irresponsibility, just like the ambience of this little fun jingle.
