The Lyrics

I stopped that old smokin' (smokin' smokin')
I quit cigarettes
That smoke had me chokin' (chokin' chokin')
And croakin' my pets

I stopped that old smokin' (smokin' smokin')
Cold turkey-fast crash..
Hobos in Hoboken (Hoboken, Hoboken)
Miss my butts and ash

I used to puff three packs, (three packs, three packs)
Yes, three packs a day
Can you just imagine, (Imagine, imagine)
What I had to pay?

I must a' been whacko, (whacko, whacko)
Plumb crazy, I mean
I worked for tobacco, (tobacco, tobacco)
Old man Nicotine..

Now, my life's more sunny, (sunny, sunny)
No cigarette whims...
I'm spending my money, (money, money)
On diets and gyms.

Just spending my money, (money, money)
On diets and gyms.

I enjoyed your parody, and FYI, I quit smoking in November 2007 with the help of nicotine gum and a pill called Chantix, and my reasons for quitting included saving money and prolonging my life. 5s.
