COCAINE

Cocaine is a song written and recorded by JJ Cale in 1976 and most widely known in a cover version recorded by Eric Clapton.

Eric Clapton describes "Cocaine" as "an anti-drug-song". The fans only listen to the refrain: "She don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don't lie, cocaine." But it says, "If you wanna get down, down on the ground, cocaine." The song also contains the lyric: "Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back".


The song tries to create awareness among young people so they understand that cocaine is only fun for a while but once you have the vice, it destroy your life.

I think it is a simple but important message. We can see on the everyday news that dozens of young people die from drug problems: from those that assault people to consume up those who are involved in drug trafficking.

It is a very serious problem and therefore we should not play with these drugs, we need to know that once we are in drugs we can't leave it.

Here I leave the song and lyric.



COCAINE


If you wanna hang out, you've gotta take her out: cocaine
if you wanna get down, get down on the ground: cocaine
She's alright,
she's alright,
she's alright,
cocaine
If you got that lose, you wanna kick them blues: cocaine
when your day is done, and you wanna ride on cocaine
She's alright,
she's alright,
she's alright,
cocaine
If your day is gone, and you wanna ride on: cocaine
don't forget this fact: you can't get it back: cocaine
She's alright,
she's alright,
she's alright,
cocaine
She's alright,
she's alright,
she's alright,
cocaine

  4. That is true... I thought that this song promotes cocaine consume. Once I had read your post I understood the true meaning of it.
    I think that most of people are as confuse as me... Fortunally I learn something new from you... I agree with you about how terrible drugs can be once you prove them is difficult to leave them... :-D

  5. That's a good song. I once saw Eric Clapton in concert and that was the best song he played.

    @Sergio- I think you usually don't smoke cocaine, you snort it. If you smoke it, it's crack.

    @Andrea- You can use or do drugs, but you can't usually prove them.

    See you all tomorrow!
