The Lyrics

Friends ask me how I knew
With smokes, I was through
I, of course say, "Oh"
anyone should know,
Ain't got that much dough...

They say, I must be strong
Smoking for so long,
How can I deny,
"Simple", I reply
Smokes Are Too Damn High!

They agree,
Yet, it appears to me
Deep down they somehow scoff my pledge
While I say,
I'm kickin' it today,
They think I'm off my ledge...

With hopes to call my bluff,
In my face, they puff
I'll show them I'm tough
Then quit, they too, might try
(Cause) Smokes Are Too Damn High!
Smokes Are Too Damn High!

Thanks Alvin...true..I guess I'm dating myself, here,(sounds kinda' kinky..), but I actually quit thirty years ago..I sort of felt this parody might make Still Smokers take a second look, and be money motivated to quit...I sure would be, if I was still puffin'..

This was a really good parody, but I could only give you fours, because anybody who complains about the price of cigarettes deserves to get docked a point. Think about it: If a pack is five bucks, that means each single cancer stick is a quarter. The average candy bar (here in Central Jersey, anyway) goes for about 65 cents. And the candy bar is a lot healthier (which is a pretty sad commentary in itself). So quit yer complainin'!
