This is what I have - still can't make out the tail end of the first line...  seems like it's the name of a food, but I can't make it scan:

I got a girl in a cafe downtown, where the [] [] []
She can't cook a decent meal but I do love her dessert
Oh, it is so good, oh, it is so good
But if you taste it once, you want to taste it twice
The reason of that, it tastes so nice
Because it is so good, oh, it is so good
It's just as good, good as it can be

The reason I love my good girl so, the reason I treat her right
She got everything that suit my appetite
Oh, it is so good, oh, it is so good
Well, it smell like flowers and it taste like mince
It don't make you think you ain't got good sense
Because it is so good, oh, it is so good
Well, it's just as good, good as it can be

My girl come home one afternoon, sun was way up high
She give me something make me wring my hands and cry
Oh, it was so good, oh, it was so good
Well, it wasn't no whiskey or neither no gin
Whatsoever it was, I hope she bring it again
Because it is so good, oh, it is so good
Well, it's just as good, good as it can be

banjochris:
Frankie -- I have for the first 2 lines --
I got a girl in a cafe downtown, where they make things gay
She can't cook a decent meal but I do love her to say,

I like the dessert idea, pronounced dessoit, but this was the closest I could get it to make sense.
Chris

Cleoma:
Thanks!
