Cocaine

My name is "COCAINE,"
Call me coke for short;
I entered this country
Without a passport.

Ever since then
I've made lots of scum rich;
Some have even been murdered
And found in a ditch.


I'm more valued than "Diamonds,"
More treasured than "Gold;"
Use me once
And you will be sold.


I'll make a schoolboy
Forget his books,
I'll make a "Beauty Queen"
Forget her looks.


I'll take a renowned speaker
And make him a bore;
I'll take your mother,
And make her a whore.


I'll make a school teacher
Forget how to teach;
I'll make a preacher
Not want to preach.


I'll take all your rent money
And you'll be evicted,
I'll murder your babies
Or they'll be born addicted.


I'll make you rob,
Steal and kill;
When you're under my power,
You will have no will.


Remember ...
My name is "BIG C,"
If you try me one time,
You may never be free.


I've destroyed actors,
Politicians and many a hero;
I've decreased bank accounts
From millions to zero.


I make shooting and stabbing
A common affair;
Once I take charge
You won't have a prayer.


Now that you know me,
What will you do?
You'll have to decide,
It's all up to you.


The day you agree
To sit in my saddle,
The decision is one,
No one can straddle.


Listen to me and please listen well,
When you ride with cocaine,
You are headed straight into HELL!
