Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine
When are you coming round again?
Oh, I don't think I can wait that long
Oh, you see that I'm not that strong

The scream of the ambulance
Is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister Morphine
How long have I been lying here?

What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?
Oh, I can't crawl across the floor
Can't you see, Sister Morphine
I'm trying to score

Well it just goes to show
Things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine
Turn my nightmares into dreams
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last

Sweet Cousin Cocaine
Lay your cool cool hand on my head
Come on, Sister Morphine
You better make up my bed

'Cause you know and I know
In the morning I'll be dead
Yeah, and you can sit around, yeah
And you can watch all the
Clean white sheets stained red

Songwriters
JAGGER, MICK / RICHARDS, KEITH / FAITHFULL, MARIEANNE
