No Potion For The Pain
Words and music by,
Taz DiGregori and Greg Wohlgemuth

I take no tea for my fever - Take no potion for my pain
I drink no “ shine ” for my shakin’ – get no kick – no – from cocaine
All I need is sweet freedom - get me back on my feet again

Well she took me for my money - just to keep her backdoor man
Then they both took out runnin’ - in my Cadillac sedan
Oh baby their gonna put me in jail for what I’m gonna’ do
You see , me and my 44 gun - would like a word with both of you


“ Blue Monday ” caught me dead asleep - Dead asleep at dawn
Tuesday called me Wednesday - By Thursday I was gone
Friday in the fast lane – out on 65
I took back what they owed me left no one there alive

Take no tea for my fever – take no potion for my pain
I drink no “ shine ” for my shakin’ – get no kick – no – from cocaine
All I need is sweet freedom – get me back on …
Doin’ ten to twenty for murder in the first degree
But oh baby it was worth it all to me
Take no tea for my fever – ain’t no potion for my pain
