Bad Medicine Lyrics

by Bon Jovi

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease
Bad medicine

I ain't got a fever got a permanent disease
And it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
And I got lots of money but it isn't what I need
Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison outta me
And I got all the symptoms, count 'em 1, 2, 3

First you need
(That's what you get for falling in love)
Then you bleed
(You get a little and it's never enough)
On your knees
(That's what you get for falling in love)
And now this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease
Bad, bad medicine

I don't need no needle to be giving me a thrill
And I don't need no anesthesia or a nurse to bring a pill
I got a dirty down addiction that doesn't leave a track
I got a jolt for your affection like a monkey on my back
There ain't no paramedic gonna save this heart attack

When you need
(That's what you get for falling in love)
Then you bleed
(You get a little and it's never enough)
On your knees
(That's what you get for falling in love)
Now this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
So lets play doctor baby, cure my disease
Bad, bad medicine, is what I want
Bad, bad medicine, it's what I need

I need a respirator 'cause I'm running out of breath
You're an all night generator wrapped in stockings and a dress
When you find your medicine you take what you can get
'Cause if there's something better baby, well, they haven't found it yet

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
Your love's the potion that can cure my disease
Bad, bad medicine, is what I want
Bad, bad medicine

I gotta go, I gotta, I gotta go, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta
I gotta do it again, wait a minute, wait a minute
Hold on, I'm not done
One more time, with feeling, come on
Alright, help me out now

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
Your love's got the potion that can cure my disease
Your love, bad medicine
Your kiss is what I need
Your love, bad medicine
