Hello my name is cocaine

by Gina Ricardi

My name is cocaine – call me coke for short.

I entered this country without a passport.

Ever since then I have made people rich.

Some have been murdered and found in a ditch.

I’m more valued than diamonds, more treasured than gold.

Use me just once and you too will be sold.


I’ll make a schoolboy forget his books.

I’ll make a beauty queen forget her looks.

I’ll take a renowned speaker and make him a bore.

I’ll take your mother and make her a whore.

I’ll make a school teach forget how to teach.

I’ll make a preacher not want to preach.

I’ll take all of your rent money and you’ll be evicted.

I’ll murder your babies or they’ll be born addicted.

I’ll make you rob, and steal, and kill.

When you’re under my power, you have no will.


Remember my friend, my name is “Big C”.

If you try me one time you may never be free.


I’ve destroyed actors, politicians and many a hero.

I’ve decreased bank accounts from millions to zero.

I make shooting and stabbing a common affair.

Once I take charge you won’t have a prayer.

Now that you want me, what will you do?

You’ll have to decide, it’s all up to you,

the day you agree to sit in my saddle,

the decision is one that no one could straddle.

Listen to me, and please listen well,

when you ride with COCAINE you are heading for HELL.
