12 steps so steep
but they ain't that deep
read'um & weep
then go to sleep

1. adnitted,
to the thought
i'm powerless over alcohol
and them all
other people, other things'
my Life is unManagelable
that was hard, un-Imaginable

2. came to Beliieve
a somewhat re-lief
a Power other than me
could be
re-store me to sanity
how could that be?

3. made a decision
made a revision
to turn That Power
over to another
than me
what could it Be
i couldn't see
every second. minute or hour
of every day
how about i do it my way?
whatda' ya' say?

4. took an inventory
wrote down my story
of how it be
so i could see me
why worry?

5. admitted to someOne else
the That I Be
just who i've been
admitted my sin
from Beginnin' to End

6. 'twas steady & ready
hey i be freddie
for That
to remove from me
what i see
who i be
the That That i Be
can you see?

7. on my knees
i did pleads
my needs
help me with what's within's
forgive me of my sins

8. i writ it down
didn't like the sound
but i found
of me goin' round & round

9. i asked those foe or friend
to help me end
this insanity
this vanity
of me
just thinkin'
just sinkin'
into who i be
can you see?
that's really not me.

10. continued to take store
what a bore
of who i be
of who i see
and who i am
God Damn
then i have to see

11. ask each day
as i pray
to He that Be
to help Me
be who I Be
just ME

12. havin' done this
here's the twist
now i need to care
to be there
for you
what can i do?
'cause that's what each of us do's
it's called payin' your dues
so true

so that's my 12 step
i need the help
of 1 2 another
sister or brother
we only stay
sane & sober
with 1 another

we Can Not
so do a 12 step or 2
at least the 3 step u do
do it your way
this was all
i had to say

guess you'll do it
your way
slow way
you pay
