The Lyrics

This was written in a humourous attempt to relieve the pain of a love affair gone horribly wrong, lover in question having a voracious cocaine habit. I never liked the stuff, myself.
verse 1:
Crossin' the highway late last night,
I didn't look left, no, I didn't look right,
Down the center was a line a' cocaine,
I snorted it up, and now it's in my brain...

There's cocaine in the middle of my brain,
Cocaine, it's runnin' through my veins,
Cocaine it's in the middle of my brain,
And I'm soarin' ta high heaven!
-end chorus-

verse 2:
Now if you ask me, that's no mannite!
That's pure cocaine, oh what a delight!
I don't wanna look, no I don't wanna see,
Just let me
Use my olfactory!

-repeat chorus-

verse 3:
Now ya got yer marijuana and yer LSD,
Got yer Quaaludes and amphetamines,
Yeah, ya got yer MDA and yer PCP,
but dear god, won't you give all your cocaine to me?!?!?

-repeat chorus, ad libbing with coke addict jargon-
words copyright 1981, Richard Mires

Very clever choice of song to parody. Skunks have white lines, and coke-heads can certainly develop stinky personalities, especially when they're skunked!

Thanks, Johnny D No logical, intellectual consideration, nor willful choice: credit goes to the synapse of the blood-brain barrier; feelings collide with thoughts, and sometimes it strikes a balance. RM

Yeah, snow joke... because lots of it goes up my Rosemary's nose and everyone knows but me (or something like that). Isn't snorting coke what happens when you read a funny parody and start laughing while you've got a mouthful? Anyway, good parody, Richard: hope you're all over it by now...
