See thread - Lyr req: Cocaine Bill & Morphine Sue:- Nov 06-Jan 07.

Certainly song, well recalled from my long-ago youth & student & soccer-playing days, about drugs, tho not exactly in praise: last verse as I remember it went — 'This story only goes to show There ain't no sense in sniffing snow'.

Oddly, this song, Cocaine Bill... doesn't seem to be in Digitrad under any title I can formulate. But it was also cited, quoting as under, by GuestGARGOYLE in long & full post of 17 Nov 01 on thread 'Rugby Football Songs":

"And his heart would be hard indeed who was not moved by the tragety of Morphine Bill and Cocaine Sue who after killing themselves with drugs (Honey have a sniff on me) were buried side by side."-
quoting Michael Green's Book of 'More Rugby Songs' 1967.
