lyrics

I told the doctor that I wasn't feeling well
but the look in his eyes told a story only eyes can tell
they said, "I don't want to hear it no more,
don't want no more sad tales. My problems are
bigger than yours and I've got many more bills to
pay, would you go away go back to your home,
leave me alone so I can get back to my drinking
not thinking of everybody else for awhile."

He said, "can't I just write a prescription
prescribe your addiction. Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" lets see that jaw.
Spoonful of Sugar gonna make the medicine go down."

I told a good friend, that she really looked like hell.
She said baby maybe I should sleep for a spell
because I've been working third shift taking the shit
so much that I'm stepping in it and I don't want to live
this way no more.

Can't I just write a prescription
prescribe your addiction. Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" lets see that jaw.
Spoonful of Sugar gonna make the medicine go down.

Because everybody's looking for their quick fix
they don't what else it is that they miss.
Everybody's problem is somebody's profit.

Can't I just write a prescription
prescribe your addiction. Come on, open wide
Open your mouth and say "ahh" lets see that jaw.
Spoonful of Sugar gonna make the medicine go down.
