Quit Needling Me
I see smoke, my mouth's dry, my skin crawls
I go loco and climb up the walls
I'm so blotto...can't cope...
I've been shot full of dope...
And the coke has my mind by the balls.
Philip Marlowe (Dick Powell) hallucinates in Murder My Sweet (Edward Dmytryk, 1944). Title by the typo-with-a-hypo, David Cairns.
