When I was a young man, I was bold and brave.
I was always searching for adventure that I'd crave.
Claimed I'd try most anything - it couldn't come too soon.
Then they introduced me to the needle and the spoon.

First I was in heaven - yeah, life was just a dream -
then it took a turn for worse - I heard my mama scream.
Everybody's praying that you'll soon change your tune -
but I kept on playing the needle and the spoon.

Years flew by, and where am I? Forgotten and forlorn.
I tried to make one last attempt - so tattered and so torn -
I sing my song for sorry folks in a musty old saloon -
I'm forever haunted by the needle and the spoon.
