Roxy Music - Love Is the Drug

(Ferry/Mackay)
Aint no big thing
To wait for the bell to ring
Aint no big thing
The toll of the bell
Aggravated - spare for days
I troll downtown the red light place
Jump up bubble up - what's in store
Love is the drug and I need to score
Showing out, showing out, hit and run
Boy meets girl as beat goes on
Stitched up tight, can't break free
Love is the drug, got a hook on me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me
Late that night I park my car
Stake my place in the singles bar
Face to face, toe to toe
Heart to heart as we hit the floor
Lumber up, limbo down
The locked embrace, the stumble round
I say go, she say yes
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug, got a hook in me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me

"Love Is the Drug" is a 1975 single from Roxy Music. A number two hit in the United Kingdom, it also gave the group its first substantial exposure in the United States, reaching number 30 in early 1976 on the U.S. pop singles chart and doing even better on progressive rock radio. The song started as an Andy Mackay instrumental, but then gained lyrics from Bryan Ferry; Ferry said the song came to him while he was walking and kicking the leaves in Hyde Park. "Love Is the Drug" is one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. It remains Roxy Music's highest-charting single in the U.S., while in the UK it was only topped by their 1981 version of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy".
