LYRICS 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"
