The Lyrics

Nat cole died of lung cancer at age forty-five
Imagine what he could have done if still alive
Yul Brynner appeared on TV it was no joke
He looked down upon us and said, "I'm Dead Don't smoke!"

If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
Cool down my friend don't you light it up

You know I'm not lying
What's the use of dying?
If you don't smoke, don't start
Cool down my friend don't you light it up

The smoke coming from your little stick's choking me
Please put it out just so I can breathe free
Surgeon general Koop looked you in the eye and said
"Nicotine is addicting, The Marlboro Man was a lie!"

If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
Cool down my friend don't you light it up

(trio plays)

So If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
If you don't smoke, don't start
Cool down my friend don't you light it up
Don't smoke!
