He drinks Johnnie Walker
He likes his Johnnie Walker black
He drinks Johnnie Walker
And I keep comin' back
I'm sellin' my soul for his hell of a hold on me, oh
He drinks Johnnie Walker

He's got a taste for the needle
Says it keeps him feelin' good
He's got a taste for the needle
I love him more than a good girl should
He says he likes his tar black and his brown sugar packed, honey, oh
He's got a taste for the needle

And he may be cruel, he may be mean to me
But I'm his fool, and oh, he's sweet on me
He's rough and tough, but I can't get enough

I'm shakin' all over
He keeps the blood running through my veins
I'm shakin' all over
Yeah, my darlin' he lights the flame
Inside my pearl of a heart, you can't tear us apart, baby, no
He's got me shakin' all over

He's home by midnight
Not like my daddy or my men before
Yeah he comes home by midnight
Then he's sneakin' out the door
He's a sin of a man, but he does what he can, honey, oh
He's home by midnight

But he's a skirt chasin' devil
Got a dirty, roamin eye
He's a skirt chasin' devil
And oh, he's mine all mine
My baby lies and he cheats, then he's back on his knees, but I know
He's a skirt chasin' devil

So when he drinks Johnnie Walker
He picks his poison, and I know
That he drinks Johnnie Walker
And the black label ain't gonna show
That I slipped him a secret, cause I'm gettin' even, now, oh,
In his Johnnie Walker
