Here I l ie in my hospital b ed
Tell me, Sister Mo rphine, when are you coming round a gain ?
Oh, and I don't think I can wait that l ong
Oh you see I 'm not that stro ng
The scream of the a mbulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister M orphine, h ow long have I been lying here ?
What am I doing in this pl ace ?
Why does the doctor have no f ace ?
Oh, I can crawl across the f loor
Can't you see, Sister Mor phine,
I'm trying to s core.
Well it just goes to s how things are not what they s eem
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into d reams.
Oh can't you see I'm fading f ast ?
And the big shot will be my la st.
Sweet cousin c ocaine, lay your cool cool hands on my head
Oh c'mon Sister Mo rphine, better make up my b ed
Cos you know and I know in the m orning I'll be dead
You can sit around and wa tch all the cl ean white sheets stained red.
