      About "Amphetamine Annie"

      Lyrics for Canned Heat - "Amphetamine Annie"

      This is a song with a message
      I want you to heed my warning

      I wanna tell you all a story
      About this chick I know
      They call her "Amphetamine Annie"
      She's always shoveling snow

      I sat her down and told her
      I told her crystal clear
      "I don't mind you getting high
      But there's one thing you should fear"

      "Your mind might think its flying, baby
      On those little pills
      But you ought to know it's dying, 'cause
      Speed kills"

      But Annie kept on speeding
      Her health was getting poor
      She saw things in the window
      She heard things at the door

      Her mind was like a grinding mill
      Her lips were cracked and sore
      Her skin was turning yellow
      I just couldn't take it no more

      She thought her mind was flying
      On those little pills
      She didn't it was going down fast, 'cause
      Speed kills

      Well I sat her down and told her
      I told her one more time
      "The whole wide human race has taken
      Far too much methedrine"

      She said I don't care what a Limey says
      I've got to get it on
      I'm not here to just see no man
      Who come from across the pond

      She wouldn't heed my warning
      Lord, she wouldn't hear what I said
      Now she's in the graveyard, and she's
      Awfully dead
