Anyone got the lyrics for Prescription Junkie ? I heard the Uiscedwr version and I love it. I can do the listen, write, rewind, listen, write process but am hoping someone has the words already and can post.

Nothing in the library- I checked.

"Take a sip of water and swallow it down, down, down."

Would also like any history of the song !

please ..... begging you .....

"Prescription Junkie" was written by Anna Esslemont of Uiscedwr about her experiences with Aplastic Anaemia and a bone marrow transplant. The words are printed in the CD booklet "Fish Cat Door" by Uiscedwr.

thanks, i knew some of the origins because I heard an interview not so long ago on Mike Harding show.

I don't have the CD as I bought the tune from Itunes.

I'll write out the lyrics - its also a good way to get to know the song and the timing. In nay case I don't think there are actually a lot of lines to write out compared to some songs.

I was curious, so I transcribed this by ear; I'd be interested in knowing how well it agrees with the printed lyrics.

As sung by Uiscedwr on "Fish Cat Door" (2009)

Sixteen down and five to go.
Gotta do it all again tomorrow. Oh, no!
Take my drugs and play the game.
Probably gonna lose again; it's always the same.

CHORUS: Oh, take a sip of water and swallow it down, down, down.
Do it 'cause you've got to swallow it down, down, down,
Da-da-da-da-da-dum down.

Anti-this and anti-that,
Some'll make you thin and some will make you fat.
Useless body, please behave.
Give me a break and I'll be good; I'll fight through the haze. CHORUS

I can't drink; I shouldn't smoke.
Definitely not supposed to have a toke. Mm-hm.
How can I rebel when I'm in chains?
Takin' it in and making do is melting my brains.

Doctor, doctor, I'm a mess.
Diet of medication I need to take less.
Can you help me? Do you care?
Don't give me the ... I'm already there. CHORUS

Teenage ...
But I can feel another monumental stroke comin' on.
I won't take my drugs today.
Probably not the answer, but at least it's my way(?). CHORUS
