Swallow That Pill

Well I went to see my doctor he said, “son you don’t look so good”
I said “Ever since my Baby left, I’ve been in a bit of a mood

And he said, “Hey hallelujah! Today is your lucky day!
I’ve got something here in the palm of my hand that’ll take your blues away
I’ve got pills to make you happy, pills to calm your head
Take them as directed, come and see me again.”

I said, “No, no doctor. You don’t know me very well
Just give me a week on rest and reefer. I’ll be ringing just like a bell.”

I said oh non, no I ain’t gonna swallow that pill
No, no, no I ain’t gonna swallow, ain’t gonna swallow that pill.

We’ll my doctor looked me over he said, “Boy you’re getting fat.
If you don’t stop drinking and fooling around, you’re gonna have a heart attack

I’ve got pills for high blood pressure, pills for cholesterol
Pills to ease all those side effects, one pill to rule them all.”

I said, “No, no doctor you don’t seem to understand, I’ll eat right
Slow down at night and I’ll be a brand-new man.”

I said oh no, no I ain’t gonna swallow that pill
No, no, no I ain’t gonna swallow, ain’t gonna swallow that pill. No, no!

Well, I’ve got pills to make you horny, pills for your appetite
Pills for constipation bound to keep you up all night
I’ve pill for contraception, pills for losing weight
pills for pain that are bound to send you, right to the pearly gates
I said right to the pearly gates.

No no, no, ain’t gonna swallow that pill
No, no, no I ain’t gonna swallow, ain’t gonna swallow that pill, ain’t gonna swallow that pill.
