Track Name: Don't take my whiskey away from me
Baby don't take my whiskey away from me
You can help yourself to my last dollar
But if you touch my jug you gonna hear me holler
Don't take my whiskey away from me.
Track Name: If You'se a Viper
Dreamed of a reefer five feet long
Mighty Mezz but not too strong
You'll be high but not for long
If you'se a viper
I'm the king of everything
Gotta get high before I swing
Hear those bells ring ding dong ding
If you'se a viper
Your throat is dry you know your high
And everything is dandy
Head on down to the candy store
Bust your chops on the peppermint candy
Don't care if I pay the rent
Don't give a darn where that money went
Sky is high. So am I.
If you'se a viper
Track Name: Lollipop Mamma
Got a big fat mamma she calls me her lollipop
Got a big fat mamma she calls me her lollipop
When she starts to love me she never knows when to stop

She's a hard lovin' mamma she loves me both night and day
She's a hard lovin' mamma she loves me both night and day
I'm so afraid my lollipop's gonna melt away

She shakes like jelly but jelly don't shake itself
She shakes like jelly but jelly don't shake itself
She shakes for me. Shakes for nobody else.

She's a real strong mamma lays steel on those railroad tracks
She's a real strong mamma lays steel on those railroad tracks
She's got a hug like a bear. She's gonna break my back

Got a big fat mamma she calls me her lollipop
In the night she hollers out "Bring me that lollipop!"
Track Name: You missed a real good man
Not much to look at
Don't pretend to be
Remember what I tell you babe
Someday you gonna see
You missed a real good man
When you picked all over me

I'm low and squatty
Built for speed
But I got everything that a real good pappa needs
You missed a real good man when you picked all over me.

I'm built like a tadpole
Shaped just like a frog
But when I starts to lovin' you babe
You gonna holler Hotdog!
You missed a real good man
When you picked all over me

I'm not real wise
Or young in years
But I can climb your hill baby
Without shifting my gears
You missed a real good man when you picked all over me
Track Name: Have Mercy
Richman, Poorman, Beggarman Thief
Clawing at the quicksand of your feeble beliefs
Scale the walls of your self made jail
While you're starving in the belly of a big black whale

Gather round the fire
Gobble up your swill
Send up a cheer when the lambs are killed
Bravo gentlemen. You've all done very well!
Now the pigs at the top will lead us all into hell.

Lord have mercy.
Cause we don't.
Fighting over pennies at the bottom of a moat
The kings of the castle sit back and gloat
Spill enough blood and they'll throw you a dime

We all tread heavy on the bones of the dead
Living high on blood money
The tears that they shed
Don't let your pittance go to your head
No one here is innocent
To the devil we're wed.
Track Name: Stealing Candy
I'm king of the hill
Sleek and fat
Walk around in a deadman's hat
I won my watch and chain
Counting cards in a poker game
I'm a dog I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steal is so much sweeter

There's bullet with my name on
It's the game that I play
To beat that bullet to my grave
How many times can I beat that hangman's noose
Sleep with one eye open
There's never a truce
Cause I'm a dog, I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steal is so much sweeter

You think you can beat me girl
C'mon show me your moxie
Give it a whirl
When the odds are against me I come out winning
Spend my time a drinkin' and a sinnin'
I'm a dog I'm a liar
I'm a lowdown cheater
Cause the candy you steel is so much sweeter.
Track Name: Hong Kong Blues
It's the story of a very unfortunate Memphis man
Who was arrested down in old Hong Kong
He had twenty years privilege taken away from him
When he kicked old Bhuda's gong
Now he's bobbin' the pianna just to raise the price
Of a ticket to the land of the free
He says his home's in Frisco where they ship the rice
But it's really down in Tennessee
That's why he's sayin'
I need somebody to love me
Need somebody to carry me home
To San Francisco and bury my body there
Won't nobody believe I've a yen to see that bay again
But every time I try to leave sweet opium won't let me fly away
Track Name: Shine
Just because my hair is curly
Just because my teeth are pearly
Just because I always wear a smile
Like to dress up in the latest style
Just because I'm glad i'm living
Just because when I smile the world is mine
I'm a lucky fella
Sun is my umbrella
That's why they call me shine
Track Name: Let me play with your poodle
Now listen here babe
Gonna sing you song
Don't get mad cause it ain't no harm
I wanna play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog

Your little poodle dog he got black shaggy hair
Look in the face like a teddybearI wanna play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog

I like the way that he twists his tale
Tried to buy him but he ain't for sale
I wanna play with your poodle

Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog

Two old maids they was lyin' in bed
One rolled over this is what she said
I wanna play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog

That lady there all dressed up in black
Wanna ply with your poodle but from the back
I wanna play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog

That lady there so tall and so cool
Wanna play with your poodle till I makes him drool
I wanna play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
Let me play with your poodle
I mean your little poodle dog
