Well I'm ridin' down Fifth Street, I'm comin' down Main
I tried to bum a nickel for to buy cocaine
Cocaine's gonna kill my honey dead

Chorus:
Now won't you tell it to me
Tell it to me
Drink the corn liquor let the cocaine be
Cocaine's gonna kill my honey dead

I sniff cocaine before I die
I'd be sniffin' cocaine if it took my life
Cocaine's gonna kill my honey dead

(Chorus)

Now I sniff cocaine, I sniff it in the wind
The doc he says it'll kill me but he can't say when
Cocaine's gonna kill my honey dead

(Chorus)

All them rounders that think they're tough
But they feed their women on the beer and the snuff
Cocaine's gonna kill my honey dead

(Chorus)
