Cold Turkey
(Recorded live at London´s Lyceum Ballroom 15 December 1969)
John Lennon

"We´d like to do a number
This song is about pain."

Temperature's risin´
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky.

My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead.

Cold turkey has got me on the run.

My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone.

My eyes are wide open
Can´t get to sleep
One thing I´m sure of
I'm in at the deep freeze.

Cold turkey has got me on the run.

Cold turkey has got me one the run.

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Prayin´ to someone
Free me again.

Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell.

Well cold turkey has got me on the run.

Oh...
