Small Pills

Take this small pill, it will make you feel good
I call it Paxil , in two weeks you'll feel like you should
Whats that you say? You're flaccid and tired
Zonked out for twelve hours and still feel expired
Now try this Zoloft, it's sure to help you
Just take a pill in the morning
and then next week take two
You read the warning
and now you're fearful? Don't be, my boy
Zoloft will make you cheerful
Ten days later and you're feeling manic?
All frantically panicking up in your attic
I tell you what, lets try something old
This Prozac pill will make you feel bold
I'll add some Neurontin and Ativan to boot
These three together are one certain route
You'll be feeling better in no time at all
Happy and Dandy, like you're eleven feet tall
It's not addictive, I promise you true
Not many street drugs can say that to you
Not quite the way? Is that what you say?
Ok, ok, we'll try something different today
Try this new pill, I call it Risperdone
You don't like this either
cause you feel like a drone?
Listen, my boy, you're sick and you're ill
you've got to be eating some kind of pill
Lithium, Lamictal, Adderall, Zyprexa
Pramipexole, Scopolamine and then there's Celexa
You've run out of options I give up on you
stop complaining and crying and saying boo hoo
Admit that you're sick and need medication
just think of it as part of your daily ration
So you give up and tell me "no more"
You'll be back, I know it, I'm sure
You won't survive, you surely won't thrive
in fact, I'll be surprised if next year you're alive
Small pills I've got, they will make you feel good
happy and cheerful, like everyone should
