Amy Winehouse Rehab

Amy Winehouse tells the story of how close she came to being admitted to a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic in the ‘Rehab’ music video. The song was written at a time when her former management pressured her into enrolling in the clinic. She changed management company instead. Winehouse opens the video lying on her bed and walking to the bathroom. Members of her band stand around dressed in night clothes. Winehouse sits in a psychiatrist’s chair in the second verse, and in what appears to be a stark rehabilitation clinic in the third.

Lyrics for Rehab

They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no
Yes I’ve been black and when I come back, you’ll know, know, know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
They tried to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go

I’d rather be at home with Ray
I ain’t got seventy days
Cos there’s nothing,there’s nothing you can teach me
That I can’t learn from Mr Hathaway

Didn’t get a lot in class
But I know it don’t come in a shot glass

They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no
Yes I’ve been black and when I come back, you’ll know know know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
They tried to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go

The man said “why do you think you here?”
I said “I got no idea”

I’m gonna, I’m gonna lose my baby
So I always keep a bottle near
He said “I just think you’re depressed”
Kiss me, here baby and go rest

They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no
Yes I’ve been black but when I come back,you’ll know, know, know

I don’t ever want to drink again
I just, ooh just need a friend
I’m not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I’m on the mend

It’s not just my pride
It’s just till these tears have dried

They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no
Yes I’ve been black and when I come back, you’ll know know know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
They tried to make me go to rehab I won’t go, go, go
