Curtis Mayfield - No Thing On Me (Cocaine Song) Lyrics




I've met many people over the years
And in my opinion I have found that
People are the same everywhere
They have the same fears
Shed similar tears
Die in so many years
The oppressed seem to have suffered the most
In every continent - coast to coast
Now our lives are in the hands of The Pusherman
We break it all down
In hopes that you might understand
Don't make no profit for The Man

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

There's somethin' kinda funny
How The Man take your money
He's shrewd as he can be
In such a way you'll never see
It's a terrible thing inside
When your natural high has died
The weaker turn to dope
And put all aside their hope

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

Twinkling twinkling grains
They do all sorts of things
While your inner mind is pleased
Your conscience is only teased...

More and more you feed
Until you grow another need
Playing fantasy
You have no reality

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

Sit down and take a listen
This may be something that you're missin'
I know your mind,
You want it funky
But you don't have to be no junkie

Just be glad you've got your own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The Man can't put no thing on me

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see
My life's a natural high
The man can't put no thing on me

Sure is funky
Sure is funky
I ain't no junkie
I ain't no junkie

Sure is funky
Sure is funky
I ain't no junkie
I ain't no junkie

I'm so glad I've got my own
So glad that I can see...

    To all the brother's and sister's in the drug game. I know it's hard but God is able. Never give up. God helped me to be free from drugs, gangs, and prison while living on the South Side of Chicago, 65th and Blackstone. Keep hope alive! Thanks, Curtis Mayfield, your music gave us light and truth.

  95. Santos Kev

    First time hearing this joint here. He is talking about how cocaine was taking over his town but he has natural high unlike others. And when people stop him; they think that he is high off of cocaine but he is actually high off life. He has nothing on him! That's alright, Curt! Beautiful. Genius. The great Curtis Mayfield. He got his own high. A natural high/ Legendary! Great album 7 legendary producer!
