Tο τραγούδι είχε παρουσιαστεί απ΄τον JL στα sessions του Abbey Road [οι τελευταίες ηχογραφήσεις των Beatles]. Ο Paul το απέρριψε, ως εκ τούτου κυκλοφόρησε ως single από τον ίδιο τον Lennon λίγο αργότερα… Το θέμα του τραγουδιού [ο εθισμός στην ηρωίνη] στοιχειοθετεί μια σχέση John Lennon και Al Jourgensen πέραν της b-day.

The song was presented by JL during the Abbey Road sessions [the last Beatles recordings]. Paul rejected it, so it was released as a single by Lennon himself shortly afterwards… The theme of the song [heroin addiction] demonstrates a relation between John Lennon and Al Jourgensen beyond their b-day.

❝ Temperature’s rising
Fever is high
Can’t see no future
Can’t see no sky
My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead
Cold turkey has got me on the run
My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can’t see no body
Leave me alone
My eyes are wide open
Can’t get to sleep
One thing I’m sure of
I’m in at the deep freeze
Cold turkey has got me on the run
Cold turkey has got me on the run
Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again
Oh I’ll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell
Cold turkey has got me on the run

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
