Did you hear a story about Cocaine Lil?
She had a cocaine house on cocaine hill
She had a cocaine dog and a cocaine cat
She even had a cocaine rat
And it's all round my brain
Been walking round 10th Street and Main
I've been looking for a girlie to give me cocaine
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
Been strolling round 10th Street and Main
Been looking for someone to give me cocaine
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
Well, Cocaine Lil and Morphine Sue
They've been strolling down the avenue two by two
Says Lil to Sue, ''It's gonna do no harm
If we both have a little old shot in the arm''
And it's all round my veins, oh cocaine
Doctor tell me again and again
He say, ''Cocaine's forces ain't for men''
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
You know the doctor tell me, tell me again and again
He say, ''Cocaine'll kill you son, it won't say when''
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
Yonder's baby, she's dressed in white
I said, ''Hey now mama, gonna stay all night''
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
Now there runs my baby, she's all dressed in black
You said you know I didn't mean it, won't you please come back
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
Hey baby, please come quick
This old cocaine's making me sick
Cocaine's sure running round my brain
