The Lyrics

Again, as part of my mission to do some more parodies about not smoking, not doing drugs, & not driving drunk, here's another one of those parodies. If you or anyone you know smokes, I hope this'll convince you to stop. Trust me, even though I don't smoke, it's a dangerous habit to get into (& a hard one to quit, unless you give it a good try). Anyways, enjoy the parody.
It can give you lung cancer,
You can get other cancers, too.
Nicotine makes it addictive,
It ain't cool to do.
You could also get a stroke,
You're more likely to be blind.
You could become impotent too,
It'll mess with your mind.
Don't smoke tobacco, or else you'll soon die.
Don't smoke tobacco!

Your breath & teeth will smell bad,
It drives the people away.
You'll be wasting all your dough,
To keep cravings at bay.
It could be better spent,
You could save the economy.
I beg you, don't smoke that stuff!
I'm tellin' ya, do it for me!
Don't smoke tobacco, or else you'll soon die.
Don't smoke tobacco!

Too many people die from smoking,
About 440k a year.
What's worse is that some of the people who smoke
Are some that we hold dear.
Cigarettes have many chemicals,
Stuff that you shouldn't get.
No matter what some people tell you,
I hope, I hope you'll never forget.
Don't smoke tobacco, or else you'll soon die.
Don't smoke tobacco!

Why smoke tobacco while certain mushrooms are perfectly legal?
Dylan Baranski - December 05, 2006 - Report this comment
That just eludes me. How the heck do people smoke mushrooms? I don't get it. Then again, I most likely don't want to know, seeing as how it's probably about as dangerous as smoking/chewing/otherwise messing around with tobacco. Then again, I live in the USA, & the laws here are different than Finland's, so it's also most likely that those "certain musrooms" are illegal to smoke here.

er.. you don't smoke psilocybin (the right 'shrooms). The law is kind of odd here: you can't make the plain magic mushroom illegal as it grows on its own with no cultivation, but to do anything with it (such as drying it out, adding it to home brewed beer, etc.) is illegal. Having said that, I did a parody to this song about smoking something else ("Smoking a quarter"), which is equally illegal. A spot-on parody, if not rip-roaringly funny.

Heck, come to think of it, don't smoke anything at all! The only thing you should be smoking is your opponent in a game, video or otherwise.

I don't smoke or chew, but I do drink MD 20/20 "wine" and lots of it. I have tried 'shrooms, and I like them, but farmers think that they are hallucinating when they see this tall, beautiful redhead who is wearing hip waders picking mushrooms off of manure piles, so I don't use them anymore. (The tall, beautiful redhead is me, by the way)
