Humble Pie – 30 Days In The Hole lyrics

Songwriters: marriott, steve

Roll that tape
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Thirty...
Thirty days...
Anyone doin' that one?
Thirty...
I'm doin' that one

30 days in the hole (yeah, that's nice)
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole (Lord have mercy)

(Laughter)
Oh yeah, c'mon in man that's it
Yeah right

All right, all right, all right, all right, yeah

Chicago Green, talkin' 'bout red Lebanese
A dirty room and a silver coke spoon
Give me my release, come on
Black Nepalese, it's got you weak in your knees
Seeds and dust that you got bust on
You know it's hard to believe

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
That's what they give you
30 days in the hole

Newcastle Brown, I'm tellin' ya, it can sure smack you down
Take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
It's got your head spinnin' round
If you live on the road, well there's a new highway code
You take the urban noise with some durban poison
It's gonna lessen your load

30 days in the hole
That's what they give you now
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
All right, all right
30 days in the hole

Well how you doin' boy?
You here for 30 days
Get, get, get your long hair cut
And cut out your ways

Black Nepalese, it got you weak in your knees
Only seeds and dust that you got bust on
You know it's so hard to please
Newcastle Brown can sure smack you down
You take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
You know you're jailhouse-bound

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
Ohoooohooohooooo
30 days in the hole
30 days, 30 days, 30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole

    This is the drug user's eternal complaint: honestly, I ain't hurtin' nobody. People have been yelling "legalize it" for decades; Steve Marriott complicated the discussion just a weetad in this song, mixing the relatively harmless highs of pot and hash with the nastier tones of coke and heroin, with their much harder rep for seriously messing people up. His reference to "borstal" makes one wonder exactly what age he started but it was probably early; Marriott had a reputation as a tough in his school days which his small stature (he was about 5'4") made both tough to maintain, and, likely, imperative (didn't we all know somebody like that in school? I sure did). Nobody could squeeze more power out of a small songbox than Marriott; this song offers but a taste (try the live version of "Don't Need No Doctor" for a real tour de force, and "Black Coffee" for a really tasteful blues turn).
