well the sickness hasn't left
hasn't left me
don't know why
and if my health
does not come back
i'm gonna die

here comes my ride
it's not that fast
and i know why
cause my friends
don't drive the benz
they drive them yellow datsuns

hey lady please don't
make me the fool
i'm wearing sleeves
on my heart for you

oh i ain't gonna live
and i think that doc knows why
i got morphine in my sleeves
i got some stars in my eyes
i got morphine in my sleeves
got some stars in my eyes

hey lady please don't
make me the fool
cause jerry's kids
been bettin' on this
information they got from you

and i ain't gonna live
but i'll race you to the sun
i can't lose i'm gonna win
i'm in my yellow datsun
i can't lose i'm gonna win
i'm in my yellow datsun

    General CommentAt first I didn't really like this song because it sounded kind of like counrty which I'm not too fond of, but I love how he makes dying seem so carefree almost like he's saying "Oh well life sucked anyway" I love his voice as well. Heart break is also a theme in this song

    General CommentNeva made me like country, and made me like folk.

    This song, to me, is just saying to slow down.
