"Overdose" as written by and Angus Young Malcolm Young....
I never smoked with no cigarettes
I never drank much booze
But I'm only a man, don't you understand
And a man can sometimes lose
You gave me something I never had
Pulled me down with you
Pulled me up, think I'm in love
Hope you can pull me through

I overdosed on you
I overdosed on you
Crazy but it's true
Ain't nothing I can do
I overdosed on you

Oh woman you give to me
More than I can take
But listen honey, I don't mind
You're a habit I don't want to break
Don't want none of that hard stuff
Don't need it anymore
I'm in love, and I'm sinking fast
And I don't need no cure

I overdosed on you
I overdosed on you
Crazy but it's true
Ain't nothing I can do
I overdosed on you

Gee I was happy as a man could be
To far gone to escape
Power of love, don't pull me off
Just write on my grave

I overdosed on you
I overdosed on you
Crazy but it's true
Ain't nothing I can do
I overdosed on you
On you, on you, on you
All over you
All over you
Overdosed
Overdosed
Overdosed on you
Overdosed on you

    General Commenti agree with you my man, but please dont' use F@#$% as a term to put people down.

    Rob Halford happens to be proud of his sexual choice and good for him......and he did front Judas Priest.

    I digress.
    People simply put ACDC in the limited head bangers group, but if you actually listen to the albums (Bon Scott years) you will be amazed to hear a band on par with just about any act out there.


    Have a good one .........Check out ,"Bullet"

    General CommentI'm not surprised to be the first; Hell half of the Rock and Roll world doesn't even know who Bon Scott is.......if you are still wondering he was the greatest lead singer in the history of music.

    Alright that is an over statement; but no one brought more energy and sung with such an unhinged flare...and he really shined on this one.

    This happens to be my favorate AC DC song and once you hear it a few times i'm certain you will rank it among your favorate AC DC tunes.

    Just unreal energy.

    Bon Scott is the most deserving yet unheralded person in Rock and Roll history.

    General Comment^^^i couldn't agree more

    and i hate those emo fags that say "all AC/DC sounds the same" because they are ignorant, and have never heard 1/16 of AC/DC's songs...hell they've probably heard highway to hell, TNT, and back in black

    fuckin faggots
