"Alcohol" as written by and Jerry Dammers....
An icy wind blows through the door
You feel like you've been here before
You tremble and you start to sweat
The symptoms of withdrawal

Alcohol
Why do you do it?
Why do you keep beating me?
You give some people a real good time
But you cause some untold misery

Heroin
Why do you do it?
I don't like what I've seen
You promise someone a real good time
And then you take them from their family
You tremble and you start to sweat
You don't want to withdraw
And when your flesh begins to crawl
You'd rather not be here at all

Alcohol
How do you do it?
Please don't do it to me
You give some people a real good time
But you cause some untold misery

Alcohol
Why do you do it?
You ain't gonna do it to me
You give some people a real good time
And you cause some untold misery
