The Lyrics

Smoking's one bad habit,
Dangers, second hand
Though we kick the habit,
We inhale more than planned
Out in public places,
Gray clouds everywhere
Safer in "Non-Smoking"
But, they can't fence the air
It's no wonder that we feel abused
We'd still be smoking if we wanted used...

Inhaling someone's exhales
We cough and choke
It's gonna' kill us,
Second Hand Smoke

Strolling down a sidewalk in the city
Our poor lungs just get more clogged and gritty,

Second Hand Smoke
It's bound to make us all croak
It seems there's not a lot that we can do
Issues on the ballots are for buildings and stores
If passed, they'll be polluting more, the great outdoors

It ain't no joke, we're breathin'
Second Hand Smoke
It ought to bother you !
This Second Hand Smoke, too !

Watch that puff !
We're gonna' croak, too soon from
Second Hand Smoke
(It ought to bother you !)

Yes, we're gonna' croak, too soon from
Second Hand Smoke
Tell !

Where there's "Smoke" there's fives.

A restaurant with a smoking section is about as sensible as a swimming pool with a peeing section. Very inspired.
