For over 40years I thought it was a joke,
When people used to say you know you shouldn`t smoke,
I used to think they were picking and trying to show off,
But they were full of energy , it was me that had the cough,
Just one more ciggy I used to say, wont be all that bad,
Now 40years later that extra little ciggy has made my life so sad.
The lesson that I learn is to stay quit and stay strong,
look after your body and you wont go wrong,
I have got a second chance but a heavy price I`ve paid,
So please take heed, and dont break the promises you`ve made.
