​People's Drug

This song is by John Wesley Harding.

Got a stupid job but it's fair money
I got a brand new car but I can't drive
I've got a sweetheart, I call her honey
And I've also got a wife

People say that they're depressed
But they go out, they're so well dressed now
What is it that makes them feel that way?

Can't get it in no drug store
No man's an island, that's for sure
And it looks like the world
Just ran out of things to say

So now give me some of the people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug
Whatever makes you feel that good
I'll take it like I know I should

So, give me some of the people, people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug, drug

Pick me up and take me to a movie
Give me an ending that I can understand
Sell me a rocking soundtrack, make it groovy
Give me backstage passes for the band

People always whine, whine, whine
Shut up and pay the fine, fine, fine
What's the difference anyway
Between being safe and being rad

When the big joke is we've all been had
You don't get to read the news in U.S.A. Today
You know that

Give me some of the people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug
Whatever makes you feel that good
I'll take it like I know I should

So give me some of the people, people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug, drug

People guitar

God, it's a wacky race we're running
I must atone for all my sins
God, grant me some of what you're giving
I heard you don't need needles, don't need pins

I'll pay prescription, where's the bill
I thought it was a bitter pill
What's it matter what I feel

Take the dog and take the wife
Show me how to lead a better life
The price you people pay, well, it's gotta be a steal

Give me some of the people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug
Whatever makes you feel that good
I'll take it like I know I should

So, give me some of the people, people's drug
Give me some of the people's, people's drug
Give me some of the people's drug, drug, drug, drug, alright
