Ah, watch out
People tell me "you need to know better"
Give me sermons 'bout the things I do
You gotta love 'em, even wrote letters
You know I even answered a few, I said
I've been doing poison (poison)
I guess I poisoned my life
And I love poison (poison)
It's better than marrying a wife

On the road, the pace is getting frantic
'Specially when your poisoned out your mind
A flight of stairs is like swimming the Atlantic
When you're poisoned, deaf, dumb and blind, I said
I'll take my poison (poison)
I guess I poisoned my life
I wish I was poisoned (poison)
I wish I'd poisoned my wife

My Father, he used to be a Preacher
Never taught me nothing but scorn
If I ever catch him on the street, yeah
I'll make him wish he'd never been born because
He was Poison (poison)
And now he poisoned my life
Yeah, he was Poison (poison)
I wish my mother wasn't his wife, no
