junkie's lament
rikki's been kicking the gong
lickety split didn't take too long
a junkies sick a monkeys strong
that's what's wrong
well i guess he's been messing around down town
so sad to see the man losing ground
he's winding down behind closed doors
on all fours
mama don't you call him my name
he can't hear you anymore
and even if he seems the same to you
that's a stranger to your door
go on ask him what's he come here for
oh my god a monkey can move a man
send him to hell and home again
with an empty hand in the afternoon
shooting for the moon
he's halfway sick and it's halfway stoned
he'd sure like to quit but he's too far far gone
and they'll wind him down with the methadone
he's all on his own
baby don't you throw your love away
i hate to seem unkind
it's only that i understand the man
that the monkey can leave behind
and i used to think he was a friend of mine
