Stuck On You

From the album Peter Alsop Buy Now

This song is about "huffing".  It's got some funny lines in it, but "huffing" isn't funny.  We want to at least get the subject out on the table with kids so we can discuss the detrimental effects of getting dizzy by cutting down your brain oxygen.  

 

STUCK ON YOU

Cho: Stuck on you, stuck on you

Stuck on you from sniffin’ glue,

Nothin’ that my heart can do, cause I’m

Stuck on you from sniffin’ glue!

 

We met at the disco-hop

I’d started to freak-out

But when the joint got busted,

You helped me to sneak-out

I lost my stash, began to crash

My knees were gettin’ weak

Then you took out your tube of glue

And y’got some on my cheek, and now I’m

 

Chorus

 

Mom and Dad will be so mad

They won’t know what to do

Cause in their car I went too far

An’ I got attached to you!

Somehow our eyelids inter-laced

I can’t deny that we’ve embraced

Or Dad will say that we’re two-faced

And I’ll get pasted!! What’ll I do? I’m,

Chorus

 

You got hooked on model planes

But that was just the start

Then plastic cars and boats and trains

Replaced me in your heart

I gave you my last Duco tube

The kind that overflows

But you wouldn’t save a ‘sniff’ for me

Y’just jammed it in your nose!

And still I’m

Chorus
