The Lyrics

Dedicated to the memory of news anchor, Peter Jennings
You, know so well, it's true
Smoking's bad for you
Still, many packs you puff
Never get enough
Calling Cancer's bluff...

Then, routine chest X-ray
Hear the doctor say,
"Tumor's in your lungs,
Chemo, surgeon's knives"
Smoke Takes Many Lives..

So upset, you grab a cigarette
And swear it will be your last..
Surgery, long months of therapy
Till you're cancer free at last..

Now, breathing gratefully,
Fresh air, all smoke free
So thankful to be
One in ten that survives
Smoke Takes Many Lives..

Yes, Smoke Takes Many Lives..

If somebody ever found a way to make marijuana as profitable as tobacco, and convinced the Republicans of it, marijuana would then be legal... and perhaps all our pot parodies wouldn't be nearly as funny.
