"I need a shot of love

I don't need a shot of heroin to kill my disease,
I don't need a shot of turpentine to bring me to my knees,
I don't need a shot of codeine to help me to repent,
I don't need a shot of whiskey, help me to be president

I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love

Doctor, can you hear me? I need some Medicaid
I seen the kingdoms of the world and it's makin' me feel afraid.
What I got it ain't painful, it's just bound to kill me dead
Like the men that followed Jesus when they put a price upon His head

I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love. (woo-hoo)

I don't need no alibi, when I'm spending time with you
I've heard all of them rumors and i know you heard 'em too.
So don't show me no picture show, don't give me no book to read,
It don't satisfy the hurt inside or the habit that it feeds.

I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love (oo-oooh)

I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love
I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love

Why would I want to take your life?
You've only murdered my father, raped his wife,
Tattooed my babies with a poison pen,
Mocked my God, humiliated my friends.

I don't wanna be with nobody tonight,
Veronica ain't nowhere,
Mavis just ain't right.
There's a man who hates me and he's swift, smooth and near,
Am I supposed to sit back and wait until he's here?

I need a shot of love, (oo-ooh) I need a shot of love (oo-oooh)

I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love
I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love
I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love
I need a shot of love."
