Take Me Down to the Infirmary

This song is by Cracker and appears on the album Kerosene Hat (1993).

Take me down
To the infirmary
Lay me down
On cotton sheets
Put a damp cloth
On my forehead
Lay me down
And let me sleep

I know the whiskey, it won't soothe my soul
And the morphine won't heal my heart
But if you take me down to the infirmary
I won't have to sleep or drink alone

So, take me down
To the infirmary
Walk a sound that's as blue as her eyes
Oh, sister Magdalene won't you fetch the doctor's flask
He is going to need a steady
A steady hand

I know the whiskey, it won't soothe my soul
And the morphine won't heal my heart
But if you take me down to the infirmary
I won't have to sleep or drink alone

So, take me down
To the infirmary
Lay me down on cotton sheets
Put a damp cloth on my forehead
Lay me down let me sleep
Lay me down let me sleep
