She falls through the doorway,
Rolls down the hall.
She bounces off the sofa,
And walks into the wall.
It's easy to see that she buckles and bends.
She's doin' quaaludes again.

Quaaludes again.
Quaaludes again.
If you've got aurora,
You know for shorra
She's your friend.

She's doin' quaaludes again.

She fumbles and stumbles
And falls down the stairs,
Makes love to the leg of the diningroom chair.
She's ready for animals, women or men.

She's doin' quaaludes again.

Quaaludes again.
Quaaludes again.

If you've got a lemon, a dog and three women,
Then she's your friend.

She's doing quaaludes again.
Quaaludes again.

[Dialogue between man and woman with riff in the background:]

He: Baby, you've been doing quaaludes again. Well, then who?
She: No. Not me. I don't have any quaaludes.
He: You don't have 'em 'cause you took em all already.
She: No.
He: You had six.
She: Nooo...
He: You had six yesterday, right? In your purse?
She: No...
He: How many you got now? Where'd they go?
She: No. I don't have ANY.
He: That's what I mean.
She: No...
He: Where'd they go? What'd you take?
She: I didn't take anything. I just had a small... a small headache.

She: No... Maybe an aspirin.
He: That's the biggest damned aspirin I've ever seen! You did... You keep... Don't keep pullin at me! Don't do that! Don't do that! c'mon... you're bumpin' into the furniture.
She: It hurts!

    General CommentThis song is part of the genius of Silverstien, God rest his soul, RIP. I taped this on Dr. Dimento when I was in 9th grade- I couldn't believe how funny it was, also, how this genious wrote Where the Sidewalk Ends, and A Light in the Attic! Been a long time since I was in a band, but I always wanted to cover this song. Blees you Shel, whereever you are!
