[ Tab from: ]
Did you ever hear about Cocaine Lil?
She lived in Cocaine Town on a cocaine hill
She had a cocaine dog and a cocaine cat
They fought all night with the cocaine rat
She had cocaine hair on her cocaine head
She had a cocaine dress that was poppy red
She wore a snowbird hat And sleigh ride clothes 
On her coat she wore Crimson Cocaine rose
Big gold chariots and the Milky way
Snakes and elephants silver and grey
Oh the cocaine blues they make me sad
Oh the cocaine blues make me feel so bad

She went to a party one cold night
And the way she sniffed was sure a fright
There was Morphine Sue an the Poppy Faced Kid
Climbing up snow ladders and down they slid
And in the morning 'bout half past three
They were all lit up like a Christmas tree
When she got home and started for bed
Took another sniff and it knocked her dead

They laid her out in her cocaine clothes
She wore a snowbird hat with a crimson rose
on her headstone you'll find this refrain... 
"she died as she lived sniffing cocaine"
