Bring me champagne when I'm thirsty
Bring me a reefer when I want to get high
Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me a reefer when I want to get high
Give me a woman when I get lonely
And sit her right down here by my side

Lord there shouldn't be no law
When a man want to smoke a little dope
Hey baby, Lord there should be no law
When a man want to smoke a little dope
Yeah you're the same as loving
(...) enough don't you know

Every time I get high
Yeah, I lay my head down on my baby's breast
Every time I get high
I'm going to lay down on my baby's breast
Well you know she hug and kiss me baby
She said "Buddy Guy you are the best"

I want to get high this morning
People just as (...) is my name
I want to get high this morning, baby
Just as (...) is my name
You can bet my bottom dollar
Keep on you no cocaine

Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me reefer when I want to get high
Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me reefer when I want to get high
Give me a woman when I get lonely
Lay down by my baby's side

Let's play the blues now...

One more time

Give me a woman when I get lonely
Lay down by my baby's side
