A rock song that sounds like a bit of a swipe at Big Pharma (whoever he, she or it may be).

lyrics

He Don't Wanna Kill You by Darryl John (c) 2013

Verse 1:
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
Don't reach for that pill;
(E7) Cos there ain't no money in killing you,
He just wants to keep you ill:
So (A7) listen very carefully,
And this ain't no joke.
He'll (E) only want you dead,
When the money's gone and you're broke:
(B) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
So take my advice,
(B-Bb-A) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
He'll treat you nice,
(A-Ab-E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.

Verse 2:
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
Don't go to that Quack;
(E7) Cos there ain't no money in curing you,
He'll just keep you coming back:
So (A7) head to the Pharma good buddy,
With your Script in your hand.
You (E) know that you'll find one,
In every corner of the land:
(B) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
So hear what I say,
(B-Bb-A) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
He'll make you pay,
(A-Ab-E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.

Chorus:
(G) Keep spending money with him
(A) Night and day
(G) Keep takin’ all your pills
(A) And you’ll be OK
(B) Just listen closely
(A) And heed what I say
(G) You’re much better off
Throwing (A) them all away (E)

Instrumental: “A verse”

Verse 3:
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
Even if you’re sick;
(E7) But he’ll happily entertain you,
And he’ll do it so quick:
There's (A7) a very good reason for this,
And it’s nothing to do with luck.
Cos (E) he knows that if you’re seriously ill,
He can make a real big buck:
(B) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
It’s him you’ve got to thank,
(B-Bb-A) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
You’re dollars in the bank,
(A-Ab-E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.

Chorus:
(G) Keep spending money with him
(A) Night and day
(G) Keep takin’ all your pills
(A) And you’ll be OK
(B) Just listen closely
(A) And heed what I say
(G) You’re much better off
Throwing (A) them all away (E)

Verse 4:
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
Don't reach for that pill;
(E7) Cos there ain't no money in killing you,
He just wants to keep you ill:
So (A7) listen very carefully,
And this ain't no joke.
He'll (E) only want you dead,
When the money's gone and you're broke:
(B) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
So take my advice,
(B-Bb-A) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you,
He'll treat you nice,
(A-Ab-E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.
(E) Big Pharma he don't wanna kill you.
