For everyone who wants to give up xxx

Been a long time comin but now’s the time

To rid myself of that disgusting habit

Not exactly still in my prime

But when time’s right you gotta grab it

My body and mind will fight so hard

Willpower they say will always win

Will stopping make me like a tub of lard?

I only smoke cos I want to be thin

I really do not want to smell

I want to beat them little sticks

I want to be able to breathe more well

They want to kill me, that’s their kicks

Patches, gum, cold turkey, pills

They keep coming back into my head

Cough cough, puke up, I feel ill

Dreams when I try to sleep in bed

How can that stuff, them pretty leaves

Have such a hold upon my life?

I want to go down on my knees

Craving is cutting like a knife

‘ang on a minute what’s going on?

grieving for something that’s so shite?

That’s just so monkey b’stard wrong

Never even got high as a kite

All them fags have ever done

for me is lose my freedom

Once I started when I was young

I really began to need them

But now I’ve taken my last drag

I’m fed up with the ash

Make me smoke you, you old bag!

I just ain’t got the cash

So do your best old nicotine

You are no friend of mine

Can’t believe how silly I’ve been

F’off you’ve had your time!

To everyone who wants to stop

This thing that keeps us puffing

It’s not the be all, not a prop

It’s just a piece of nothing

Let’s all get together friends

And from this day on forward

Stop smoking, say that is the end

Think about the rewards

So cigarettes you are forwarned

There’s no place for you here

It’s an extraordinary forum

Where smokes have disappeared!

Poof!!! Be gone in a puff of smoke
