John Lennon: Cold Turkey Meaning

Song Released: 1969


Cold Turkey Lyrics

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...

    A song about John himself when he was putting his hot bird, sort of speaking in the refrigidator back than, to go ''Cold Turkey'' against the drugs that have been shot,smoked and eaten into a high body temperature that was making him feel like he was a dead baby, up to the point that was forcing him to choose life instead, but then it started making him feel cold with frozen shivers, wanting to stop his drug addiction by the phrase ''Cold Turkey'' to be taken into his body the cold way out of the refrigidator.

    He wrote this when he tried to quit heroin 'cold turkey', meaning without lowering doses progressively.

    John wrote this song during one of his attempts to kick drugs, it's about going cold turkey with drugs, and the troubles of kicking habits.
