Cocaine Lil Did you ever hear about Cocaine Lil? She lived in a house on Cocaine Hill. She had a cocaine dog and a cocaine cat, And they fought all night with a cocaine rat. She had cocaine hair on her cocaine head. She had a cocaine dress, that was poppy red; But the cocaine-blues, they made her sad Oh those cocaine-blues made her feel so bad. She went to a snow party, one cold night The way she sniffed, it was a fright. There was Hophead Mag, with Dopey Slim Kankakee Liz and Yen-She Jim. Along in the morning, 'bout half-past three They were all lit up like a Christmas tree. Lil went home and started for bed, She took another sniff, and it knocked her dead. They laid her out in her cocaine clothes She wore a snow-bird hat with a crimsen rose And they wrote on her tombstone this refrain: "She died as she lived, sniffing cocaine" From Hootenanny Tonight EL
