  • Mama got depressed
    When Daddy was a-dying
    So the doctor gave her something
    To help her with her crying
    Then she couldn't sleep
    So he gave her something else
    Now there's yellow, red and pink
    On her bathroom shelf

    Says if one don't work
    Then another one will
    If you got a little hurt
    You take a little pill

    Fella down the road
    Walks with a limp
    He's a decorated soldier
    And a pain pill pimp
    Got a loaded gun
    And an old pit bull
    A black Cadillac
    With a whole trunk full

    Says if one don't work
    Then another one will
    If you got a little hurt
    You take a little pill

    Lay on your tongue
    Ain't a nerve that can't be numb
    Ain't a buzz that you can't buy
    Ain't a low you can't make high
    Til it wears off
    Like it always will
    And when it does
    You take a little pill

    Woah
    Woah

    You don't need a needle
    You don't need a vein
    No burn like whiskey
    No cross like cocaine
    If you ever lose a lover
    Or you wanna lose some weight
    What you can't cure
    You can medicate

    If one don't work
    Then another one will
    If you got a little hurt
    You take a little pill

    Lay on your tongue
    Ain't a nerve that can't be numb
    Ain't a buzz that you can't buy
    Ain't a low you can't make high
    Til it wears off
    Like it always will
    And when it does
    You take a little pill

    Woah
