I was so sick last night I  
Didn’t hardly know my mind.
So sick last night I
Didn’t know my mind.
I drunk some bad licker that  
Almost made me blind.
 
Had a dream last night I  
Thought I was in hell.  
I drempt last night I  
Thought I was in hell.
Woke up and looked around me—
Babe, your mouth was open like a well.
 
I said, Baby! Baby!
Please don’t snore so loud.  
Baby! Please!
Please don’t snore so loud.
You jest a little bit o’ woman but you  
Sound like a great big crowd.
