QuotesEdit

Andy: “ ‘You're My Drug’ is meant to be a mixture of ‘Monterey’ by The Animals and ‘So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star’. Monterey is a favourite joke — I dunno what Califonians thought of Eric Burdon. He was a Newcastle dwarf, a gnarled Geordie mystic! It was an XTC song, but it was too much like the Byrds; the chord change is so West Coast. So we thought let The Dukes do it like The Byrds!”

Gary Pig Gold: “ ‘So You Wanna Be a Rock and Roll Star’ (bass line and percussion and 12-string fills).”

LyricsEdit

You take me to heaven from deeper than hell ever dug

And you fly me higher than a trip on a magical rug

Confessions unravel

You bang with your gavel

And here I stand guilty

In a court where you are the judge


You're the drug

You've got to come on round and pick me up

You've my drug

And I don't ever know if I can give you up


Well you bring me colour where once I had just black and white

Now I have rainbows appearing round here in the night

Our true loving is growing

And passion is flowing

Well I don't need any cigarettes or beer from a jug


You're my drug

You've got to come on round and pick me up

You're my drug

Well you can slow me down or quick me up

You're my drug

Well you can spill me down and lick me up

You're my drug

And I don't ever know if I can give you up
