Cold Turkey Lyrics - John Lennon



Review The Song (4)


Temperature's rising
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky

My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Cold turkey has got me on the run

My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

My eyes are wide open
Can't get to sleep
One thing I'm sure of
I'm in at the deep freeze

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Oh, oh, oh, oh

i relate totally to this | Reviewer: lucy | 12/4/13

I vividly remember reading these lyrics in the 1980's off the imagine album when I was a little girl wondering what on earth they meant. Sadly today after my stupid gp putting me onto prescription opiates for mild back pain I now totally feel exactly like the words of this song. Withdrawal from opiates is hell. John was so talented at conveying this feeling 100% accurately.

Flawless! | Reviewer: richie | 10/9/13

Brilliant song and lyrics, anybody who has been through heroin withdrawals or similar opiate withdrawals knows exactly how John Lennon was feeling when he experienced this and wrote this, and he conveys that feeling beautifully!

"Cold Turkey" - A "Beatle" breaks free | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/07

This tune could be said to be the first actual "Beatle solo project", as it was recorded in early-1969, long BEFORE the famous "McCartney" album which announced the end of the group's prolific career in 1970.

This is Lennon documenting his (limited) experience with heroin. Almost "punk" in it's presentation and lyrical content, and pre-dating that movement by half a decade.

well discription | Reviewer: Adam hetfield | 2/18/07
