    Ladies and Gentlemen
    Fella Americans
    Lady Americans
    This is James Brown
    I wanna talk to you about one of our most deadly killers in the country today
    I had a dream the other night
    And I was sittin’ in my living room
    Just dozed off to sleep
    So I started to dreamin’
    I dreamed I walked in a place and
    I saw a real strange, weird object
    Standin’ up talkin’ to the people
    And I found out it was Heroin
    That deadly drug that go in your vein
    He said…

    I came to this country without a passport
    Ever since then I’ve been hunted and sought
    My little white grains are nothing but waste
    Soft and deadly, and bitter to taste
    But I’m a world of power and all know it’s true
    Use me once and you’ll know it, too
    I can make a mere schoolboy forget his books
    I can make a world-famous beauty neglect her looks
    I can make a good man forsake his wife
    Send a greedy man to prison for the rest of his life
    I can make a man forsake his country and flag
    Make a girl sell her body for a five-dollar bag
    Some think my adventure’s a joy and a thriller
    But I’ll put a gun in your hand and make you a killer
    In cellophane bags I’ve found my way
    To heads of state, to children at play
    I’m financed in China, Ran in Japan
    I’m respected in Turkey and I’m legal in Siam
    I take my addicts and make ’em steal, borrow, beg
    Then they search for a vein in the arm or the leg
    So be you Italian, Jewish, Black, or Mex
    I can make the most virile of men forget their sex
    So now… So now, my man, you must… You know, do your best
    To keep up your habit until your arrest
    Now the police have taken you from under my wing
    Do you think they dare defy me? I, who am king?
    Now, you must lie in that county jail
    Where I can’t get to you by visit or mail
    So squirm with discomfort, wiggle and cough
    Six days of madness and you might throw me off
    Curse me in name, defy me in speech
    But you’d pick me up right now if I were in your reach
    All through your sentence you’ve become resolved to your fate
    Fear not, young man or woman… I’ll be waiting at the gate
    And don’t be afraid, don’t run… I’ll not chase
    Sure, my name is Heroin and you’ll be back for a taste
    Behold! You’re hooked
    Your foot is in the stirrup
    And make haste, mount the steed, and ride him well
    For the white horse of heroin will ride you to Hell

    To Hell
    Will ride you to Hell until you are dead
    Dead, brother… Dead!
    This is a revolution of the mind
    Get your mind together
    And get away from drugs!
    That’s a demand.

    Please Stop
