The Lyrics

My other song today was so unfunny I felt I needed to balance it with this.
What helps me when I'm feeling so blue?
When I want to change my view
I say that Xanax do!

And how!
Pop in that pill I'm free
And my whole life ain't real
That's just what Xanax do

A million horns are honking
And there I am
Right in my car
In ever-blasting bliss
And it's here with me

Xanax, Ooo Xanax, Ooo
(I have no fear)
On Xanax, (two!)
Xanax, Ooo Xanax, Ooo
(Now it's so clear)
On Xanax, (two!)

Xanax do make me on highs so fine!
No clue, Xanax do

The lift
That came from a couple shrinks
I got off of all the drinks
Put me on Xanax-true!

A dozen kids are screaming
And I don't care
I watch the tube
In over-acting soaps
And it's here with me

Xanax, Ooo Xanax, Ooo
(I have no fear)
On Xanax, (two!)
Xanax, Ooo Xanax, Ooo
(Now it's so clear)
On Xanax, (two!)

Won't go berserk
Nothing else works like Xanax do!
Won't go berserk
Nothing else works like Xanax do!
I needed to write an "X" song for later (Wink wink)

Rick D - Good job. 5's. Yes, you did get your "X" song, and a good one, too. Good thinking, there. Say, I have some Xanax here, Doctor gave it to me when I was straddling the edge of that building (just kidding about that part). I only took 1/2 of one to see if I would be able to drive if I had to take one (they weren't to take every day, just in case of a panic attack). I was GOING to take one before my last scheduled visit to the dentist. As I was about to take it out of the bottle I saw the warning "do not take with any product that has Grapefruit or Grapefruit juice in it". Since I had JUST drank a large cup & refill of "Squirt" soda an hour or two before while having a fast food meal (small amount of grapefruit juice) I called the Kaiser Pharmacy and asked what could happen if I did. Pharmacist told me, "Well, you could get very sick, there was a case where a man died". I said "Thank you", cancelled my Dentist Appointment and stayed home. I got over the panic problem, just an accumulation of stuff that built up until I could hardly function in the weeks just before my job ended. So they sit, waiting just in case....

I'd tell you how good I thought this was, but I'm too sedated....555

I'm feeling better just from reading this! I barely even notice those people at the door to my office yelling at me to get back to work.

(ABC) Good one Rick...I would say something else but the good comments were taken. (Just like the Xanax) 5's

Grapefruit is known and/or rumoured to lower the effects of many chemical meds, including birth control pills, so if your woman is on the pill and decides to go on one of those vitamin-c diets then you might be just a glass or two and nine months away from having to handle out cigars... :-)

(ABC-X) For parodies taking four hours of more to read stop taking the Xanax before coming to this site.

Say, Rick... did you write this knowing the original song from memory? It's just reminded me how dire a song Xanadu was... not that I've listened to it for years, of course ;-)

(ABC-X) Xanax do kinda work like that...the one time I drove at all after that any (1/2) I just was going to the local grocery store and I was waiting for the traffic on the main street I was about to turn on and I was thinking "if I turn without looking carefully I could get hurt very badly, maybe even killed"...I didn't turn carelessly, but I remember sitting there and not be disturbed or alarmed at the no more driving on Xanan for me...not even to the story and not even when I've only taken a partial dose...but I'm not taking them now at all point perhaps....
