Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me
And everybody take a whiff on me
And a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

When I marry gonna buy me a line
Got to whip my baby if she change her mind
And it's oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

When I marry gonna buy me a rope
I'm gonna whip my baby 'til she Buzzard Lope
And it's oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me
And everybody take a whiff on me
And a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
Take a brown skin woman for my particular use
I said oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Chew my tobacca, spit my juice
But I love my baby 'til it 'tain't no use
I said oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me
And everybody take a whiff on me
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

[Instrumental verse 12 bars]

Walked up Ellum and I come down Main
Tryin' to bum a nickle just to buy cocaine
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Tell ya' son, gonna make it my tickle
That's two bars of coke, can't buy it by the nickel
And a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me
And everybody take a whiff on me
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

You take Sally and I'll take Sue
It's a mighty little difference in between the two
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

You take Sally and I'll take Jane
They both good lookin' but they ain't the same
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Whiff-a-ree and a whiff-a-rye
Gonna keep on whiffin' until I die
And a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Cocaine for horses and not for men
Doctor say it'll kill ya but he don't say when
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Two barrels of pickled pork, two barrels of meal
And oh how glad your ladys is
And a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me
And everybody take a whiff on me
It's a-oh, oh, baby take a whiff on me

[Instrumental, 12 bars + 1 and out]
