If You're a Viper - Stuff Smith and his Onyx Club Boys

Dreamed about a reefer five feet long.
Mighty Mezz, but not too strong.
You'll be high but not for long
If you're a viper.

I'm the king of everything.
I've got to be high before I can swing.
Light a tea and let it be
If you're a viper.

When your throat gets dry you know you're high
Everything is dandy
Truck on down to the candy store
Bust your konk on peppermint candy

Then you know that you're body's spent.
You don't care if you don't pay rent.
Sky is high and so am I
If you're a viper.

Hogeye's 60's addendum:

When you're feelin' groovy and kinda horny
And look right beside you
And see a beautiful person thinking the same damn thing
and she says,"Why don't we get down and raunchy!"

Then you know you're stoned on your ass
You've been smoking some of that bad bad grass
High as a kite and that's all right
If you're a viper.

Recorded in 1936. Later covered by Fats Waller as "The Reefer Song" (1943) with slightly altered lyrics,
i.e. hiss-s-s viper toking sounds and ad lib crosstalk.
