Viagra in the Waters
Copyright 1998 Camille West, BMI and Scott Wodicka

Just outside of Johnson City
On a dark and twisting road
In a Kenworth 18-wheeler
With a heavy, shifting load
He was pushing through to Binghamton
Though the hour was getting late
Pfyzer's finest on a mission
To the pharmacies upstate
He was on a holy mission
There were men who couldn't wait

(for his twenty thousand pounds of Viagra®)

He'd clocked seven hundred miles
Since he climbed into the rig
Just another twenty five or so
Would finish up that gig
But the trailer hit an oil slick
And down the hill did fly
'til it landed at the bottom
in the town's water supply
It was instant rigor mortis
What a hard way to die
Chorus:
Save your sons
Shield your daughters
There's Viagra®
In the waters
All over Johnson City


People rising with the dawn
They drank their morning coffee,
Took their showers, watered lawns
And who could have predicted
All the changes up ahead?
Men were getting up for work,
And heading back to bed
So many called in sick,
You would have thought a virus spread
Down at the courthouse coffee shop
Some stared in disbelief
As a pack of thirsty lawyers
Started filling out their briefs
But at the local college
Young men appeared much smarter
No chromosomal mystery
They simply studied harder
Now water on the rocks
Is the latest party starter

Chorus
The Johnson City firemen
Cursed their wretched luck They could not get their fire hoses

Wound back on the truck
Sprinkling holy water at a funeral,
Father Ryan said
"I know I've saved their souls,
but I've never raised the dead.
Would a couple strong men help me now
To close the casket lid?"

Old man Weisberg
Took the shower of his life
Then he marched into the kitchen
And he called out to his wife
She knew something was up
As he stood naked at the table
Holding two cups of coffee
And half a dozen bagels
It had been at least a decade
Since the last time he was able

Chorus

Believers seeking miracles
The pilgrims came in hordes
The waters of Viagra®
Grew more popular than Lourdes
The clergy quoted scripture
But they found it hard to sell
That those who chose to be anointed
Were pointed straight to hell
Despite the dire warnings
The crowds began to swell
Some hardened politicians Came into town one day
With their permits and their pipelines
Pumped the waters all away
From the heart of Johnson City
Rose the mournful cry of men
But the women knew another truck
Was coming through again
Don't worry—there's a truck next week
We'll spread the oil again

Chorus

(Here's a bonus verse that never made it into the final song)

Dr. Baker in geriatrics
Had to make it into town
Through the traffic at the drawbridge
Where the gates would not come down
And something told him he had found
The fountain of youth
When a gaggle of old geezers
Grabbed his secretary Ruth
Yes the old men at the nursing home
Grew long in more than tooth

And the reason that the politicians tried to take it all
Was that one of them had tried it -
and it only made him tall.

Danged, we had something like that happen up here in Wes Ginny but on a smaller scale. Seems that my couzin Rufus's wife Retha May found a bottle of them things in Rufus's sock drawer and well, she figured she had enough problems with Rufe as it was so she threw 'em in the well.

Now that was two months ago and ya know they still ain't been able to get the well pump handle down...
