Lyrics

SMOKING

Well twenty years is plenty
years of constant inhalation
puffing like an old steam train
chugging into the station
I remember a time way back
at my first kindergarten
I was young and innocent but
it was barely starting

Smoking, choking,
croaking every morning
itching, twitching
when the pack was yawning
man's best friend was never his favourite pet
man's best friend is his constant cigarette

Yes 20 years is plenty
years of constant inhalation
that time has come to reckon up
my full deterioration
I can never forget the taste of
that first cigarette
it took my breath away and
I ain't got it back yet

Smoking, choking,
croaking every morning
itching, twitching
when the pack was yawning
I'm a running into a deeper oxygen debt
this must be my final cigarette

And I will be free!
I will be free!
I will be free!

From smoking, choking
croaking every morning
itching, twitching
when the pack was yawning
I don't need a burning safety net
this has been my final cigarette!

And yes I'm free!
Yes I'm free!
Yes I'm free!

And yet I can't help but grieve
like an old friend has died
and I can't help this
emptiness inside
