This is a pretty cool song, I think. I like a lot of Alice Cooper’s songs. I know one of them,”School’s Out”, was used as my sister’s high school graduating class song.

I do know that he is a golfer, and see him out on the course in televised tournaments sometimes.

“Poison”, by Alice Cooper – from the Wiki article:

It became one of Cooper’s biggest hit singles in the United States, peaking at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. It performed even better in the UK by peaking at number 2 in the UK Singles Chart. “Poison” remains one of Alice Cooper’s best known songs. It is ranked by Billboard as the “91st top song of 1989“, while Ultimate Classic Rock ranked it as the “7th best Alice Cooper song”, commenting “Poison sounds like a typical ’80s pop-metal number at times, but Cooper’s intensity brings it to a whole other level.”[1] The song’s main riff was written by guitarist John McCurry, who two years earlier had used it for the John Waite track “Encircled“.

“Poison”, by Alice Cooper, was released from his album, “Trash”, in 1989. It was written by Alice Cooper, Desmond Child, and John McCurry, and is on the Epic label.

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I’m caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat
I hear you calling and it’s needles and pins (and pins)
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don’t want to touch you but you’re under my skin (deep in)
I wanna kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna to kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison (poison)
I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
Yeah, well I don’t want to break these chains
Poison (poison)
Runnin’ deep inside my veins
Burnin’ deep inside my brain (poison)
Poisoning (poison)
I don’t want to break these chains (poison)
Poison
(Poison) I don’t want to break these chains (poison)
