They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no
Yes I've been black and when I come back, you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
Just try to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go

I’d rather be at home with Ray
I ain’t got seventy days
Cos there’s nothing,there's nothing you can teach me
That I can’t learn from Mr Hathaway

Didn’t get a lot in class
But I know it don’t come in a shot glass

They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
Just try to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go

The man said "why you think you here?"
I said "I got no idea"
I’m gonna, I'm gonna lose my baby
So I always keep a bottle near
He said "I just think you’re depressed"
This me "Yeah baby, and the rest"

They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

I don’t ever want to drink again
I just, ooh just need a friend
I’m not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I’m on the mend

And it’s not just my pride
It’s just till these tears have dried

They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
Just try to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go!

    I like tis song a lot. It very catchy, and it is really true.
    She had a drug problem, and they tried to make her go to rehab, but she wouldn't go. That's the meaning. True story guys, please don't vote down.

    Her record label said that she had to go to rehab. She dropped the label, signed onto another, released this track and album, landing her on the billboard charts and winning her many awards. At the end of the video she ends up in Rehab. It also says that she doesn't want to go just for the public image, and you can tell she doesn't care by the crazy pictures that have been taken of her.
