Lyrics
My best friend is a junkie
He shoots up all day
Sometimes he even shits himself
What else can I say?

Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up

If his girl don't score
He beats her black and blue
He wears his track marks like tattoos

I love to hear his junkie talk
Whenever he talks on the sidewalk

My best friend is a junkie
It's sad but true
My best friend is a junkie
What does your best friend do?

My best friend is a junkie
He shoots up all day
Sometimes he even shits himself
What else can I say?

Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up
Shoot up or shut up
