The Needle and the Damage Done


I caught you knockin'

at my cellar door

I love you, baby,

can I have some more

Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and

I lost my band

I watched the needle

take another man

Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song

because I love the man

I know that some

of you don't understand


to keep from running out.

I've seen the needle

and the damage done

A little part of it in everyone

But every junkie's

like a settin' sun.
