A tribute to late and not always so great Amy Winehouse

A set of Amy Winehouse tribute songs/poems

May she rest in peace

Rehab-Rewrite of Amy's song by the same name

Should've listened harder when they tried to make me go to rehab
Now all they can do is look back and say
I told you so, so, so
Yes, now in that dark, cold black
Eternal I will walk
Never to life
To ever come back
Oh no no no
Ran outta time
Refused to believe
I was't fine
Only wished I'd listened closer
When they tried to make me go to rehab
But I was too stupid and lazy
I would't go go go
Oh no no no

Now in this freaky coffin I lay
For a much longer time then just 70 days
Yeah, too bad
There was no one
No one I'd let reach me
Thought I was so smart
But I just threw my life away

Know I did't have much class
Guess that's what I get
Spendin' too much time
At the bottom of a whiskey glass

Should've listened harder when they tried to make me go to rehab
Now all they can do is look back and say
I told you so, so, so
Yes, now in that dark, cold black
Eternal I will walk
Never to life
To ever come back
Oh no no no

So sad
Never dreamed I'd end up here
Too bad
I did't opt for a better idea
Gone now for all eternity
Cause I kept that bottle too damn near me

So sad
Did't reach out enough when I got depressed
Yeah, guess from those pills and bottle
I should have given it a rest
Now I can only lay in the dark wishin'

Should've listened harder when they tried to make me go to rehab
Now all they can do is look back and say
I told you so, so, so
Yes, now in that dark, cold black
Eternal I will walk
Never to life
To ever come back
Oh no no no

No, I won't ever drink again
But what good is that gonna do me
All alone now without a friend
Dead and gone before my time
Could've spent 10 weeks
Got my butt back on the mend

Instead I had to have a drink and my foolish pride
It's just so sad
Never learned my lesson till I died

Should've listened harder when they tried to make me go to rehab
Now all they can do is look back and say
I told you so, so, so
Yes, now in that dark, cold black
Eternal I will walk
Never to life
To ever come back
Oh no no no

Amy Winehouse-R.I.P. 2011

Should've went to rehab
Instead our musical angel
Lost her life
To that unholy devil
Used alcoholic logic
Fought some unholy war
Addicted
In her very song
Saying
Singing
Do you think she was believing?
You know I'm no good
Such a damn shame
Amy, Amy, Amy
Your life did't have to be
A losing game
We beat the point to death
But you just would't listen
Till the good lord called you home
For that very last curtain call

You Know I Was No Good-Rewrite of Amy's song You Know I'm No Good

Fell down hard
On life's set of stairs
Really messed up my head
Put on a t-shirt and drank my last today
Yeah, got my card punched out
Wound up in a 6 foot deep grave
Hey, hey

'Cause I made that bottle my fella, my guy
Acted like I knew no better
When I really did
Too late
Too soon
Found myself
Knock knock knockin' on Heaven's door
Lookin' back in disbelief
At my dead body on the floor

I killed myself
Like you all said I someday would
Yeah, I was always told I was trouble
Guess you were all right
I was no good

The bottle my one joy
My favorite toy
Regrettin' all that heavy drinkin'
Much too late
In death's final throes
Lord only knows
From here
Where my soul goes

So much I could've done better
Instead I was bitter
Dead and buried
My future is no more
Cause I had to make that whiskey
My favorite whore

No sweet reunion
No fun trips with family and friends
To Jamacia or Spain
Never will be the same again
No genie bottle to wish and rub
My life ended in bitter defeat
Addiction knocked me dead off my feet

Ooh guess now I'll find out
If Hell really burns
My stomach drops and my guts churn
Truely I did't think
My life could get much worse
Wonder where that devil will stick his pitchfork first

Should've listened harder when they tried to make me go to rehab
Now all they can do is look back and say
I told you so, so, so
Yes, now in that dark, cold black
Eternal I will walk
Never to life
To ever come back
Oh no no no
I was no good
