Lyrics

Little Blue Pill

Written By: John Rack/Chris Johnson

Intro – HEY, LET ME TELL YA ABOUT A LITTLE BLUE PILL
(Guitar fill 12 bars)
COME ON, LET ME TELL YA ABOUT A LITTLE BLUE
PILL
(Guitar fill 12 bars)
I GET SUCH A THRILL WHEN I TAKE THAT LITTLE
BLUE PILL

VI – WELL, I’M GETTING TO AN AGE WHEN I’M NO
LONGER A KID
RUNNIN’ ROUND WITH THE GIRLS, AND THE CRAZY
THINGS I DID
SO I WENT TO MY DOCTOR TO CURE MY ILLS
HE SAID: GO ON AND TAKE THAT LITTLE BLUE PILL

CI – WELL NOW THAT I’VE FOUND IT, THERE’S NO
DOUBT ABOUT IT
JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT, THINK I’M GONNA
SHOUT IT
I GET SUCH A THRILL WHEN I TAKE THAT LITTLE
BLUE PILL

VII - WELL, I WENT HOME TO MY WIFE AND I WAS, SO
EXCITED
I SHOWED HER WHAT THAT LITTLE BLUE PILL HAD
JUST IGNITED
AND AS I DROPPED MY BRIEFS, SHE SHRIEKED IN
DISBELIEF
SHE SAID, “YOU OLD FOOL, I’LL BE HURTING FOR
WEEKS!”

CII – WELL NOW THAT I’VE FOUND IT, THERE’S NO
DOUBT ABOUT IT
JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT, THINK I’M GONNA
SHOUT IT
I GET SUCH A THRILL WHEN I TAKE THAT LITTLE
BLUE PILL

(Guitar solo – 2 Twelve-Bars)

VIII – WELL, NOW MY BABY’S LOVING TO ME ALMOST
EVERY NIGHT
THAT WOMAN NOW, SHE DON’T EVER WANNA
FIGHT
SHE SMILES AND SHE’S HAPPY, SHE’S NEVER
UPTIGHT
THAT LITTLE BLUE PILL HELPS KEEP MY BABY
RIGHT

CIII – WELL, IF YOU STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M
TALKIN’ AT YA
HERE’S A LITTLE HINT, IT RHYMES WITH NIAGARA
YOU’LL GET SUCH A THRILL WHEN YOU TAKE
THAT LITTLE BLUE PILL
YOU’LL GET SUCH A THRILL WHEN YOU TAKE
THAT LITTLE BLUE PILL
