"White Lines (Don't Do It)" as written by Markus Schulz, Melvin Glover and Sylvia Robinson....
Freeze! Rock!
Freeze! Rock!
Freeze! Rock!
Freeze! Rock!
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Aaaah... AAaah... AAAah... AAAAhh

White! Ooh-white!
White! Ooh-white!
White! Ooh-white!
White! Ooh-white!

(White Lines)
Vision dreams of passion
(Going through my mind)
And all the while I think of you
A very strange reaction
(Yours to unwind)
The more I see, the more I do

Something of a phenomenon
Telling your body to come along
Cause white lines blow away..

Blow! Rock! Blow!

Ticket to ride a white-line highway
Tell all your friends they can go my way
Pay your toll, sell your soul
Pound for pound it costs more than gold
The longer you stay, the more you pay
My white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or to your vein
With nothing to gain except killing your brain

Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on)
Rock (put 'em up, put 'em Up, put 'em UP!)
Aaaaah... Higher baby, AAaaah... get higher baby,
AAAAAhh... get higher baby, AAAAHHH!
And don't ever come down... Free base!


(Pure as the driven snow)
Connected to my mind
(And now I'm having fun, baby!)
(It's getting kind of low)
'Cause it makes you feel so nice.
(I need some one on one, baby!)

Tell me it'll blow your mind away, (baby)
Going to your little hideaway
'Cause white lines (what do white lines do?)
Blow away..

Blow! Rock! Blow!

A million magic crystals painted pure and white
A multi-million dollars almost overnight
Twice as sweet as sugar
Twice as bitter as salt
And if you get hooked baby
It's nobody else's fault -
So don't do it!


(Don't you get too high)
Don't you get too high, baby
(It turns you on)
You really turn me on and on
(Can't you ever come down)
My temperature is rising
('Til the thrill is gone)
No! I don't want you to go

A school kid gets arrested
Gonna do some time
He got out three years from now
Just to commit more crime
A businessman is caught
With twenty four kilos
He's out on bail, and out of jail
And that's the way it goes!

Cane! Sugar! (suger)
Cane! (cane) Sugar! (suger)

Athletes reject it
Governor's correct it
Gangsters, punks, and smugglers
Are thoroughly respected
The money gets divided
The women get excited
Now I'm broke and it's no joke
It's hard as hell to fight it - don't buy it

    General Commenti love this song obviously everyone who has heard it or read the lyrics knows that this song is about cocaine (even though i work at the skating rink and they played this song with out even remembering the meaning until it was too late) but i love this song the part Twice as sweet a sugar twice as pure as salt and if you get hooked baby
    It's nobody elses fault so don't do it
    means that they are attempting to be anti-drug but just the beat of this song makes me want to do a few lines and just blast this as loud as i can....

    General CommentYeah, the Shaun of the Dead reference is definitely to the original Grandmaster Flash version. Still a fun song, though.

    General CommentI love this song. Great cover. This song is in Shaun of the Dead, only it's sung by the actors so I think they're singing to the original.

    General CommentI think it's crazy that this song came out around the time that John Taylor was coming out of rehab.

    General CommentYeah,great song with relatively obvious subject matter.Like all so called anti messages tends to glamourize but as I haven't got DD's financial resources have unfortunately remained uncorrupted -never mind...
