Lyrics of Cold Turkey

Temperature's rising
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky

Temperatur steigt
Fieber ist hoch
Kann nicht sehen keine Zukunft
Kann nicht sehen, kein Himmel


My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Meine Füße sind so schwer,
So ist mein Kopf
Ich wünschte, ich war ein Baby
Ich wünschte ich wäre tot


Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey hat mich auf der Flucht


My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

Mein Körper schmerzt
Gänsehaut-Knochen
Kann nicht sehen, kein Körper
Leave mich alone


My eyes are wide open
Can't get to sleep
One thing I'm sure of
I'm in at the deep freeze

Meine Augen sind weit offen
Kann nicht schlafen
Eine Sache, ich bin sicher, der
Ich bin in der Tiefkühltruhe


Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey hat mich auf der Flucht


Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey hat mich auf der Flucht


Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Sechsunddreißig Stunden
Rolling in Schmerzen
Beten zu jemandem
Befreie mich wieder


Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell

Oh, ich werde ein guter Junge sein
Bitte machen Sie mir gut
Ich verspreche Ihnen nichts
Hol mich aus dieser Hölle


Cold turkey has got me on the run

Cold turkey hat mich auf der Flucht

'Cold Turkey' is a song written by John Lennon, and recorded by The Plastic Ono Band. Its first public performance was recorded and released on the 'Live Peace In Toronto 1969' album by The Plastic Ono Band which included Lennon (vocal, guitar), Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Klaus Voormann (bass), Alan White (drums) and additional vocalizing by Yoko Ono. Yoko introduced it as the newest song written by John; John added that the band had never played the song together as a group before.

The song was released as a single in October 1969, and was John Lennon's second solo single ('Give Peace a Chance' being the first). According to Peter Brown in his book 'The Love You Make', the song was written in a 'creative outburst' following Lennon and Ono going 'cold turkey' from their brief heroin addictions. Brown also states that Lennon presented the song to Paul McCartney as a potential single by The Beatles, but was refused and released it as a Plastic Ono Band single with sole writing credits to him. were attributed to the Lennon/McCartney partnership. ('Give Peace a Chance' was later changed to give Lennon sole credit.) Besides Lennon, this recording features Eric Clapton on lead guitar, Klaus Voormann on bass and Ringo Starr on drums. It was recorded in Abbey Road Studio 2.

In 1969 Lennon returned his MBE to Buckingham Palace saying 'I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against Cold Turkey slipping down the charts. With love, John Lennon of Bag.' John Lennon would perform this song, along with 'Don't Worry Kyoko', live at the Lyceum Ballroom with George Harrison, Keith Moon, Eric Clapton, and others. This would be Lennon's last live performance with any of the other Beatles and this version would be available on his 'Some Time in New York City' album.

The song's first appearance on a Lennon album was the 1975 compilation 'Shaved Fish'.

In March 2005, 'Q' magazine placed 'Cold Turkey' at number 74 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.
