Milk And Alcohol

Album: Private Practice (1978)
Charted: 9
  • White boy in town
    Big black, blue sound
    Night club, I paid in
    I got a stamp on my skin

    Main attraction dead on his feet
    Black man rhythm with a white boy beat
    They got him on milk and alcohol
    They got him on milk and alcohol

    Stay put I wanna go
    Hard work, bad show
    More liquor, it don't help
    He's gonna die, it breaks my heart

    I decided eventually
    This ain't doing a thing for me
    They got him on milk and alcohol
    They got him on milk and alcohol

    They got him on milk and alcohol
    They got him on milk and alcohol
    They got him on milk and alcohol
    They got him on milk and alcohol

    Got up, I walked out
    To the car, start it up
    Feel bad, sad night
    I never saw a red light

    Sirens were a screamin' all around
    I pulled on over and I shut her down
    A black cop gave me a shove with his gun
    Said up against the wall and don't make a run
    They got me on milk and alcohol
    They got me on milk and alcohol Writer/s: JOHN MAYO, NICK LOWE
