David Charles Olney (born March 23, 1948 in Providence, Rhode Island) is an American folk singer/songwriter. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill but did not graduate, instead joining Bland Simpson's band Simpson (band) in the early 1970s. He moved to Nashville in 1973 and formed the band The X-Rays, which gained a reputation during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Since then, he has performed as a solo singer/songwriter. His songs have been covered by Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, and Laurie Lewis, among others. One of his most popular songs is called "Wait Here For the Cops," in which his partner, Sergio Webb, convincingly imitates a police siren on the guitar. more »

You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
To keep you strong

First time is the hardest
Cut you like a knife
If it doesn't kill you
You get on with your life
Wind and rain and stormy weather
Love and pain just run together

You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
To keep you strong

Second time sweet and kind
Look out or you'll fall
Think you'll leave a love behind
It ain't that way at all
She's on your mind night and day
But she's a million miles away

You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
You need a little bit of poison
To keep you strong

The way you love me leaves me weak
To weak to even cry
If you go you'll kill me
Girl, don't even try 
First a little then a little more
Make me forget where I been before

I need a little bit of poison
I need a little bit of poison
I need a little bit of poison
To keep you strong
