The Lyrics

After reading Susanna Viljanen's parody "Suicide is Painful", I felt moved, & I also thought "Hey, if someone out there has a parody about not committing suicide, perhaps I should do more anti-drug, anti-tobacco, & anti-drunk driving parodies!". After all, I felt that song parodies were a good medium for my message, & I figured that I could make a difference by doing this. So, here's the first fruit of that tree. Thanks for the inspiration, Susanna!
Don't do drugs,
Or else you'll be messed up
You've got so much of your life to live.
I don't want you to be takin'
Don't want you bakin'.
Hope you see what gives.

I can't see
Why some people don't realize
They'll hurt their brains
And be compromised.
They better see that it's holding them down
And turn around.

(Yes they should!)

I hope you don't take up what they're doin'
Or else your life will soon be ruined.
Please don't end up like those fools.

It's a dangerous thing to start doing drugs,
You could end up jailed or squashed like a bug.
Hey, I'm beggin',
Don't start takin'
"Cause you will lose, if you catch that habit.

I hope you can
See that I don't want to criticize,
Son, I hope you will recognize
That if you let that evil stuff lead you on,
Then you can't be strong.

I hope you don't take up what they're doin'
Or else your life will soon be ruined.
Please don't end up like those fools.
(Like those fools!)

(Hey, I'm beggin' ya,
Don't start takin' drugs!)

Don't do drugs,
Or else you'll be messed up
You've got so much of your life to live.
I don't want you to be takin'
Don't want you bakin'.
Hope you see what gives.

I can't see
Why some people don't realize
They'll hurt their brains
And be compromised.
They better see that it's holding them down
And turn around.


(Yes they should!)

I hope you don't take up what they're doin'
Or else your life will soon be ruined.
Please don't end up like those fools.

Don't do drugs!
(Oooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!) (x4)
