No thanks my friend
Do what ever you want
Do what ever you please
But I want to live in a drug
And alcohol free zone

No thanks my friend
Don’t you dare tempted me
Because I don’t want you
To put your bad influence on me
No thanks my friend

No thanks my friend
One’s not enough
But two is too much
Once you started is hard 
To be able to stop

No thanks my friend
Thinks of its consequences
It is fun to take
And it is very painful to deal
With it

No thanks my friend
It is time to say no
To drugs and alcohol and yes to life
Destroy it before it destroys you
No thanks my friend

No thanks my friend
Live your life without drugs 
Or else you’ll lose control
Live your life without alcohol
We’ll have a better talk

No thanks my friend
“No” is still the best option
Until you think you can bare with
Its consequences
You can always say...
...drugs and alcohol no thanks my friend
