The Lyrics


Don’t wanna use drugs—here’s how not to get sick.
There is something right where you are;
a scientist says it does the trick.
First he said use a drug as an off-label med
that was likely to make you die—
some guy ended up dead.

But that was way back early;
now he has changed his tune.
Now the scientist tells us: He has found the boon—
we all will be well soon.

Don’t wanna use drugs…might make me ill.
This new thing don’t cost much,
and it ain’t a pill.
And it ain’t a drug…can use it any day;
you can also use it at night
you’ll get to keep most of your pay.

This makes you impervious;
gets your system in tune.
Listen to the scientist: He has found the boon—
we all will be well soon.
I have found a boon…save me!

So, in lieu of drugs, get a long plastic tube,
shove it down your trachea, lubed.
Push the can’s button; hear Lysol spout
till it’s all gone—then you’re in luck:
You’ll be fine—there’s no doubt!

Lysol is gonna cure you—
scientist says it’s true.
Assemble the family, intubate ’em too,
spray in a whole slew.
That’s what you must do.
