Lyrics


Snortin' whiskey and drinkin' cocaine

We're snortin' whiskey and drinkin' cocaine

Got this feelin' I'm gonna drive that girl insane


Your like a bad river baby, your all over town

Your like a bad river baby, your all over town, all over town

I may be confused but you know I sure ain't down


I'm a fast movin' baby I can show you around

I got so much cocaine ain't never comin' down

Snortin' whiskey and drinkin' cocaine

Got this feelin' I'm gonna drive that girl insane, insanity


nortin' whiskey, drinkin' cocaine

We're snortin' whiskey and I'm, I'm drinkin' cocaine

Got this feelin' I'm gonna drive that girl insane

Got this feelin' I'm gonna drive that girl insane
