Give me one more drink
Of that Devil's Island Gin
Give me one more drink
Of that Devil's Island Gin
I've been drunk once tonight
And I want to get drunk, again

Take me back, baby
Lord, I won't get drunk no mo'
You just take me back, baby
I won't get drunk no mo'
I'll guarantee I'll let all whiskey, go
(piano)

Listen here, little girl
Don't you wanna go downtown with me?
Listen here, little girl
Don't you wanna go downtown with me?
Yes, I'm in love with you
An I just can't let you be

Oh yes, oh yes
Oh yes, I know
Oh yes, little girl
Oh yes, oh yes, I know
Keep me worried and bothered
Troubled ev'rywhere I go
(piano)

Take yo time, mama
Lord, do yourself some good
Take some time, little girl
And do yourself some good
I want you to do
Most ev'rything that you should
(piano)

Oh Lord, the sky looks mighty blue
Oh baby, sky looks might blue
An I feel lonesome, 'cause
Mama lost without you
(piano)

'Oh, shake that thing! '
'Better watch that, hear'
'Well! '
'All night'

Oh, you learn, tomorrow
'Bout a month ago
You'll learn tomorrow, night
'Bout a month ago
Couple bottles of mo' gin
Mama, Lordy, an I had to go.
