    Well folks, I'm goin' down to St. James Infirmary
    See my little baby there
    She's stretched out on a long, white table
    Well she looks so good, so cold, so fair

    Let her go, let her go, God bless her
    Wherever she may be
    You may search this whole wide world over
    But she'll never find another sweetheart like me, yeah

    Take apart your bones and put 'em back together
    Tell your mother that you are somebody new
    Feel the breeze blow and tell 'em all, "Look out here it comes!"
    Now I can say whatever I feel like to you

    Then keep me six crap-shooting pallbearers
    Let a chorus girl sing me a song
    Put a red-hot jazz band, we raise
    Hallelujah as we go along, well

    Well folks, now that you have heard my story
    Say boy, hand me another shot of that rye
    And if anyone else should ask you
    Just tell 'em I've got some of those St. James Infirmary blues
