Betsy


01/20/2023 Click here for Spotify or Apple Music. This is my 29th official release. “Betsy” is a slow melodic rap track that tells the story of Betsy from Hulu’s “Dopesick.” The story follows Betsy as she gets addicted to oxycontin, the plot from the show, and the results. I feel it is similar in format to Eminem’s “Stan.”


The beat is from Tantubeats.com The cover art was made by ArtworkGang from Fiverr. The track was professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sam Peters at LA Luna Recording Studio in Kalamazoo Michigan. You can stream or download the track wherever music is sold. Thank you for your support. Be sure to follow because new music is released every first, third and if there is a fifth Friday of every month.


Lyrics:


I just wanna tell a little story

About the opioid epidemic


Betsy was a good girl, doing what she sposed ta

Worked hard as minor breathing in the coal dust

Jesus was the answer and how to cope with it

Never suspected her life would serve her such a cold dish


Betsy was a good girl, doing what she sposed ta

Worked hard as minor breathing in the coal dust

Jesus was the answer and how to cope with it

Never suspected her life would serve her such a cold dish


Betsy was a minor, hard worker and grinder

She put in the hours to live happy and lively

Kept her head down, gave her all when she worked

Until one day they had a cave-in, she got caught and got hurt


She went to the hospital where they said what it did

She broke many ribs, and it hurt to breathe in

The doctor gave her Oxycontin to help with the pain

And said follow the warning by the FDA


Betsy took it as prescribed, but in the background of the night

The medical establishment was taken on a ride

The Sackler family lied to doctors and tried

To deceive the FDA while their victims died


Betsy was a good girl, doing what she sposed ta

Worked hard as minor breathing in the coal dust

Jesus was the answer and how to cope with it

Never suspected her life would serve her such a cold dish


Betsy was a good girl

Worked hard as minor

Jesus was the answer

Never suspected her life would serve her such a cold dish


She just wanted to make the pain go away

And now she felt sick without an 80

Betsy was fully hooked too hard narcotics

And didn’t know know how in the heck to stop it


She could never make the pain go away

She started snorting pills for a faster uptake

But by the end of the day, she wanted more to take

Until one day she tried heroin and decided to jab a vein


Betsy struggled for months, just to make it to lunch

Without needing heroin or other opiate drugs

She tried to get help from the local churches

But lurches just sold her fentenal and perkasets


Doctors tried to help her and get her on suboxone

But her family said it was evil and to just say no

To another drug, until one day it became too much

Betsy overdosed on the streets, never knowing what love was


Betsy was a good girl…
