Transcript and lyrics
Moderator, Dr. David Kupfer, M.D., University of Pittsburgh, Consensus Conference Panel Chair: I would like, uh, any member of the panel to describe a typical ADHD in terms of symptomatology. Mark, would you like to since you see them in your practice?
Psychiatrist Marc Vonnegut: There are uh, I mean, I think the panel has been frank in you know the difficulties here are immense in terms of um of uh
these I mean, it is hard, it’s very hard to know how to answer this question.
Here’s a little storybout this girl named Faye.
She has a project due to turn it in a couple days.
She studying to be a shrink and she wants a good grade.
They send her to the schools to watch the kiddies at play.
She jots it all down everything they do and say.
One’s chewing a pen and she writes it right away.
One, they talking to and she looks the other way.
Joey he in the chair can’t sit still gotta sway.
Oh no, she sees it’s a problem, writes em all down on a list so they
can solve E. B. Chill em.
Label em all trouble and then we can resolve em.
The list goes to the teachers with a line of parents to callem.
Gon tell the parents that their kids are ill.
Gon fix up Jonny so he can finally learn to chill.
When he swingin them legs make him pop a couple pills.
Label them all problem even though it ain’t real.
CHORUS: Ah Duh Huh?
So to end dis, we bustin you, y’all busted
Here you go coming home from working all day.
The teacher calls you up with somthin else she gotta say.
Talking bout your kid in a messed up way.
He’s gotta see a shrink and you just might have to pay.
If he ain’t livin in the hood then it’ probably all good, Mama says,
Oh yeah? Oh, you really think he should?
Now this here, just ain’t right the psychs gotem so tight they don’t
put up a fight.
Now if this was the hood I don’t think you could.
Just come up and say dat? Yo, I wish you would.
Mama don’t play that, yo she cut you cuzz. Better tell her what ADHD is
and what is does.
Pediatrician Marc Vonnegut: There are ummm
they can not um even when, um
they are as if driven by a motive… there are some good clinical descriptions.
Free your mind from mis-education, misenterpretation yo they tryna
You and me both with dose after dose.
A comatose and roast ya, enslave the culture.
Insulin shock 10,000 had to die to stop.
Lobotomy cuttin up brains 11,000 dropped.
And you wanna know who gansta? Who da dope man?
Packem up, packem up, man fast as you can.
Got the shelves on lock. commercials non-stop.
Label everybody’s problems so they all gon cop.
Some will scream when they hear that we exposing the wolves screw em,
letem stand in our way, well run through em.
Using legality to hide the reality.
Oh there goes sanity em don’t be mad at me.
You on my side I see heard it on my TV.
Together we gon bring out the truth bout ADHD.
So, let’s be real, man! What’s it all about, man?! From your own mouth,
Pediatrician Marc Vonnegut:I think, you know, we uh, I, I, I do, I think, uh, part of the problem is the profession keeps changing the diagnosis.
We gon foil your plans our tax dollars ain't yours, Hip hoppers and black
America the first to say, Up yours!
Moderator, Dr. David Kupfer, M.D., University of Pittsburgh, Consensus Conference Panel Chair: At this time we do not have a diagnostic test for ADHD. Therefore the validity of the disorder continues to be a problem.
