For Michael… By Michael…

“Morphine”

He got flash, baby

Kicked in the back, baby

A heart attack, baby

I need your body!

A hot kiss, honey

He dug the ditch, baby

You make me sick, baby

So unreliable!

I’m such a swine, baby

All down the line, baby

I hate your kind, baby

So unreliable!

A hot buzz, baby

He want the buzz, baby

Another drug, baby

You don’t deserve it!

Trust in me

Trust in me

Put all your trust in me

You’re doin’ morphine!

(Is this what the doctor says?)

He got the place, baby

Kicked in the face, baby

He hate your race, baby

You’re such a liar!

You’re every lick, baby

Your dog’s a bitch, baby

You make me sick, baby

You talk survival

She never come for me

She never want, baby

I got you up, baby

You’re just a rival!

Always a play, daddy

Right up your league, baby

You’re throwin’ shade, daddy

So undesirable!

Trust in me

Trust in me

Put all your trust in me

You’re doin’ morphine

Go on, baby!

Relax

This won’t hurt you

Before I put it in

Close your eyes and count to ten

Don’t cry, I won’t convert you

There’s no need to dismay

Close your eyes and drift away

Demerol, demerol

Oh God he’s taking demerol

Demerol, demerol

Oh God he’s taking demerol

He’s tried hard to convince her

To give him more of what he had

Today he wants it twice as bad

Don’t cry, I won’t resent you

Yesterday you had his trust

Today he’s taking twice as much

Demerol, demerol

Oh God he’s taking demerol

Demerol, demerol

Oh God he’s got his demerol

Hee….ooohhh

Oh!

(Is this what the doctor says?)

He got shit, baby

Your dog’s a bitch, baby

You make me sick, baby

You are a liar!

He shoot the game, daddy

Deep in the pain, baby

You talk the same, baby

You’re so unreliable!

Trust in me

Trust in me

Put all your trust in me

She’s doin’ morphine!

You just sit around and talkin’ about it

You’re takin’ morphine

Whoo!

Go on, baby

(Repeat – ad lib to end)
