The Lyrics

Isn't it ironic that I wrote a parody of a typical Valentine's Day themed song and turned it into a song about the crazy things that drug addicts do to fund their drug habits?
Too many drunken slobs have fallen in the gutter
Too many junkies have drifted off to sleep
They take too much and then they pay the price

The things they do for drugs
The things they do for drugs

Intoxication is a problem with no answer
We've got some Narcan
and 911's on the phone
I can't believe so many lives are gone

The things they do for drugs
The things they do for drugs

Like out there on the streets there are hoes
And they know where to go
Where the johns that they meet are surely buying
So they smile with a twinkle in their eyes
And the cash they will be makin
Pays for smack they'll soon be takin'

Ooh, those freakin druggies
Change your druggie ways
Ooh, it's got you crawlin up the wall

Cause you know that there are theives down at Lowes
And if ya, look in their clothes
You will see all the items they are hidin'
And the pawn shop up the street will surely buy em'
And the cash they will be makin'
Pays for crack they'll soon be takin'

Ooh, those freakin druggies
Change your druggie ways
Ooh, it's got you crawlin up the wall

A stint in rehab will help the situation
Agree to 90 days and make a whole start
When all is done you'll really be surprised at

The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs
The things you did for drugs...
I got the idea for this parody about a year or so ago when I heard the original song. I am planning on recording this one and I will be playing it on my show.

Irony is the whole point of good parody. Take a song and flip it on its head. Generally the more dischordant and incongruous the sub, the better. Yours fits the bill, definitely

I recorded this one last night. Stay tuned for the recording to drop within a few days.

Great rewrite. when I was growing up, it was this 'just say no' BS and the opine that druggies should all die for being so 'stupid'. But who's being really stupid when they don't take the time to LOOK at the problem and its causes. And yet alcoholism destroys as well and that's legal! Go figure.
