  The Minnesota Hotel Tape: Home of Bonnie Beecher, Minneapolis MN - 22.dec.1961  

Well, i walked up 10th street, turned down main
Lookin' for a gal that they call Lucille
Cocaine all around my brain.

Hey mama, won't you come here quick
This old cocaine is makin' me sick
Cocaine all around my brain.

Walked up 10th street, turned down main
I go where i get cocaine
Cocaine all around my brain.

Hey baby, won't you come here quick
This old cocaine is gettin' me sick
Cocaine all around my brain.

Yonder come my baby all dressed in white
Hey baby, goin' to stay all nite
Cocaine all around my brain.

Hey baby, this is real
You must know the way i feel
Cocaine all around my brain.

Yonder come my baby all dressed in blue
Hey baby, don't want no one but you
Cocaine is inside my brain.

Hey mama, come here soon
This old hashish has got me on the mood
Cocaine all around my brain.

Yonder come my baby all dressed in purple
Hey baby, i wanna see your nipples
Cocaine all around my brain.

Hey baby, won't you come here quick
You know i'm gettin'  sick
Cocaine all around my brain.  up
