The Lyrics

t's true! It's true!
I used to smoke and chew
II huffed and puffed that ugly stuff for years
I always held a white stick with a glow there
I inhaled and abused my lungs a lot
Today, though I once said, I'd never go there,
I Camel-not!

It wasn't easy to just quit, cold turkey
The first week my poor nerves were really shot
But in a while my fingers grew less jerky,
I Camel-not

Camel-not! Camel-not!
With smoke resistance I've come far
Yes, I Camel-not, Camel-not
No nicotine, no tar..

I used to fill up ashtrays every hour
Pillars of smoke would follow me around
But now, more sense I've got
And now, my veins won't clot
From my friends and my wallet, joys abound!
I Camel-not..

Camel-not! Camel-not!
Now when I crave a smoke, I pause
And say Camel-not, Camel-not
Good health becomes my cause..

Nearby convenient store may soon go bankrupt
Without my constant cigarette cash flow
Cuz' down there, I don't trot
Postponed my graveyard plot
Each day more "Will" and "Won't" power I show
I Camel-not!

Sir L'AIR de Farce, duke oEdge, my GranDAD did the CamELot scene . . . ( J-ONE ) made it to 64 yrs . . . At this time oYear, I miss him . . . with lighted whiteStick and all, Sir ! . . . i was born in a 'smoke-filled ' room ! There was always a 'blue haze' in the 1200sq ft home that we had on the Coast in Pacifica. Both ~JJ~ & ~DearHeart~ were puffers . . . I guess everyone was then in the Kamelot years !

Sir, I really liked the title of your composition! (K)amelot is a word I often use to describe the GoldenAge of USA. : strong unions ~ high taxes for the wealthy ~ stay-at-home Moms ~ US-made cars ~ Jobs-For-All ~ Loyal, not ' gloBall ' Citizenry ~ English street signs ~ Defined & Protected borders ~ Feelings of Unity & Hope . . . .Yes, all this did exist ! !

I'm still smoking, and struggling to quit. In fact, I'm smoking an Old Gold as I write this. Very good, and 5-worthy.

I hope I can quit, too, considering my family's predisposition to severe cardiac and respiratory problems. And Merry Christmas to you and yours, hope you're staying out of sick bay.
