The Lyrics

For those of you who don't know - brown is a street name for heroin. The words follow the original studio recording - not the inaccurate lyric pages on the net.
Guess they must get crack today
Them wild eyed boys that had been away
They're deranged, look pale and grey
But man, they still think their heads ain't crazy.

They were askin', like they were unwound
About brown, where it can be found
Told them they were in a meltdown
Druggin' all their ol' brains crazy.

The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
I said, the boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown.

You know that chick that used to gouch a lot
Every night she'd be on the floor, shakin' in her squat
Man, when I tell you she would drool, she had head rot
I mean she was mingin'.

And that slime out of that druggie's place
Well his cheek rotted and just sloughed off his face
Man, his juice fell about the place
If that bit don't warn you off, forget it.

The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
I said, the boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown
The boys on crack and brown, the boys on crack and brown.

Dread and fear abound, coz they're back in town
Yeah, don't leave cash around.

Friday night, he's depressed an' ill
Sold his daddy's car, so still
It's crack they blow and booze they swill
And if the pipe stays alight you'd better let 'em.

That dead head in the corner, blasted by his favourite bong
His brains are gettin' trauma, it won't be long
Won't be long till slumber comes
Now that the boy's on gear again.

The boy's on crack and brown, the boy's on crack and brown
The boy's on crack and brown, the boy's on crack and brown
The boy's on crack and brown, the boy's on crack and brown
Dread and fear abound
The boy's on crack and brown, the boy's on crack and brown
The boy's on crack, the boy's on crack.

The boy's on crack and brown again
Been messin' down his chinos.

The boy's on crack and brown again.
