Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Americans, lady Americans, this is
James Brown, I want to 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-dozed off to sleep,
so I started to dreamin',
I dreamed I walked in a place and saw a real strange weird obiect
standin' up talkin' to the people. And I found out it was Heroin,
that deadly drug that goes in your vein. It said:

I came to this country without a passport
Ever since then I've been hunted and sought
My little white grains are nothin' 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
1 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 adventures are a joy and a thriller
But I'll put a pun in your hand and make you a killer

And in cellophane bags, I found my way
To heads of state, to children at play

I'm finest in China, and 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 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 go do your best
To keep up your habit until your arrest
Now the police have taken you, come under my wing
Do you think they'll identity me, I who am King?
Now you must lie in that country jail
Where I can't get to you by a visit or mail

So squirm with this compliment, wiggle and cough
Six days of madness, hah, and you might throw me off
Cause me in name, defy me in speech
