Transcribed by Manfred Helfert.


Ev'ry time my baby an' me we go uptown
Police come an' they knock me down --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Hey, baby, won't you come here quick;
This old cocaine is 'bout to make me sick --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Yonder come my baby, she's dressed in red,
She's got a shotgun, says she's gonna kill me dead --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Hey, baby, will you come here quick;
This old cocaine 'bout to make me sick --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

You take Sally, an' I take Sue,
Ain't no difference between the two --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Hey, baby, ya better come here quick;
This ol' cocaine 'bout to make me sick --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Cocaine's for horses, an' it's not for men,
Doctors say they kill you, but it doesn't say when --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Hey, baby, ya better come here quick;
This old cocaine 'bout to make me sick --
Cocaine, all around my brain.

Hey, baby, you better come here quick;
This old cocaine 'bout to make me sick --
Cocaine, all around my brain.
