Flamin’ Groovies. Slow Death. Live

The Flamin’ Groovies were one of the best rock and roll bands ever. “Slow Death” is about drugs.

I called the doctor
Up in the morning
I had a fever
It was a warning

She said there’s nothing I can prescribe
To keep your raunchy bag of bones alive
I got some money
Give me one more shot
She said go kill yourself
I said Thanks a lot.

It’s a slow, it’s a slow, it’s a slow, it’s a slow death
