There was a man named Rickie
He used to be so fine
He let his problems got to him
That’s how he lost his mind

First he started drinking
Then using drugs
He lost all he treasured
Including the people he loved

He lived in my best friend’s alley
And he was a slave to his addictions
He smoked anything he was given
That’s why he isn’t living

Poor poor Rickie
May you rest in peace
