This song is by Rheostatics and appears on the album Double Live (1997).

Martin Tielli

He used to take a lot of drugs,
But now he's okay. He's doing fine.
He doesn't need to take the drugs anymore.

He used to drink a lot of alcohol.
He used to smoke a lot of cigarettes.
He used to hang around in bars sorta like this one
With stupid fluorescent, government issue triangles on the wall.

And you know?
He had a girlfriend, her name was Satan.
... But I guess it was for her protection,
Because she was perfectly nice.
She was about the only thing
That made him seem smart.
He had a girlfriend, they called her Satan.

And you know?
The city is a place
Where I can sit and they write funky songs,
And I know, my brain it is a place,
And I don't want to write the funking songs anymore.

He used to smoke a lot of drugs.
He used to snort it in the stalls,
But now he's into fitness.
He used to smoke a lot of cigarettes.
He used to drink a lot of alcohol.
He used to hang around in bars
With triangles on the wall.
