Mama got depressed
When daddy was a-dying
So the doctor gave her something
To help her with her crying
Then she couldn't sleep
So he gave her something else
Now there's yellow, red and pink
On her bathroom shelf

Says if one won't work
Then another one will
If you got a little hurt
You take a little pill

The fella down the road
He walks with a limp
He's a decorated soldier
And a pain pill pimp
Got a loaded gun
And an old pit-bull
A black Cadillac
With a whole trunk full

Says if one won't work
Then another one will
If you got a little hurt
You take a little pill

Lay it on your tongue
Ain't a nerve that can't be numbed
Ain't a buzz that you can't buy
Ain't a low you can't make high
'Til it wears off
Like it always will
And when it does
You take a little pill

Woah...

You don't need a needle
You don't need a vein
Don't burn like whiskey
Or cost like cocaine
If you ever lose a lover
Or wanna lose some weight
What you can't cure
You can medicate

If one won't work
Then another one will
If you got a little hurt
You take a little pill

Lay it on your tongue
Ain't a nerve that can't be numbed
Ain't a buzz that you can't buy
Ain't a low you can't make high
'Til it wears off
Like it always will
And when it does
You take a little pill

Woah...
