Something Wonderful: Loudon Wainwright III "My Meds"

Louden Wainwright is not going gentle into that good night.

"Klonopin’s a controlled substance, so I bum ‘em from my wife,
If the side effects don’t kill me all my meds might save my life.

I quit drinkin’, smokin’, red meat, dairy, and caffeine.
I’m not quite high on life, just slightly dead know what I mean?

I even asked the doctor “Doc how long can this go on?”
He said “Son you’re out to pasture, your next stop is Forest Lawn.”

You’ll need something stronger than your Advil and Aleve,
If you want to eat and sleep and piss and crap and schtup and breathe

Bonus Track:Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright III- Down Where the Drunkards Roll if you....

You can be a gambler
Who never drew a hand
You can be a sailor
Who never left dry land

You can be Lord Jesus
All the world will understand
Down where the drunkards roll
Down where the drunkards roll
