You can't stop me from drinkin'
It ain't no use to try
You can't stop me from drinkin'
It ain't no use to try
Because the way you treated me
Hoo-hoo-well-well, I'm gonna drink until I die

You can't stop me from runnin' around
Also from having my ball
You can't stop me from runnin' around
Also from having my ball
Because I am tired, ooo-well-well
Of the other man kicking in my stall

(harmonica & instrumental)

You can't stop me from talkin'
To the brown walk-ups down the street
You can't stop from from talkin'
To the brown that walk up an down the street
Because you are chasing these peppers
Hoo-well, like a policeman on his beat

You can't stop me from drinkin'
Whenev' I feel so blue
You can't stop me from drinkin'
Whenev' I feel so blue
If you ever have been mistreated
Woo-well-well, you would be drinkin', too.
