IF THERE'S A POTION I'LL DRINK IT - LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I sit
And listen to the Cuckoo birds
They get together and whistle my tune
And I reflect on my mood
Every now and then I hear a voice
He likes to think he helps me write the Blues
Usually when there’s nothing better to do

[Pre-Chorus]
He said son, believe it or not I’ve come across this before
Those little lines about pretty girls don’t seem to cut it no more
But what you must understand is there’s more in your head
Corners are yours to explore
Young man would you like a line?
I said why, what drugs are gonna change my mind?

[Chorus]
What drugs are gonna change my mind?
What drugs are gonna change my mind?
What drugs are gonna change my mind?

[Verse 2]
He stood
Looked a little confused
Kept quiet for a minute or 2
I continued my mood
And I took
A minute to unfold my arms
Deflate my chest and roll my eyes
My minds ceiling never looked so high

[Pre-Chorus]
Son, I dont think you know what it is you need
You’ve never hurt before your mind needs somewhere to feed
Write rhymes about girls and all of the world
Will know you for what you are not
Young man hit this pipe
I said why, why drugs are gonna change my mind?

[Chorus]
Why drugs are gonna change my mind?
Why drugs are gonna change my mind?
Why drugs are gonna change my mind?
What drugs are gonna change my mind?
What drugs are gonna change my mind?
What drugs are gonna change my mind?

[Middle 8]
You see my problem with drugs is
It’s an issue of trust
If you took a stroll round the back of my mind you’d be lucky to leave with your face untouched
So if I took that pill
God couldn’t keep my demons still
And you’d be the very first person to perish old man
So fuck it, why don’t you give me one

[Outro]
And those cuckoo birds will sing to you
In time
Drugs are gonna change my mind
Drugs are gonna change my mind
Drugs are gonna change my mind
Drugs are gonna change my mind
(Those drugs are gonna change my)
