The Lyrics

Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, Light One Up for Me
I'm so addicted to your weed, I'm willing to die
Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, market it is cool
Then they will get ao addicted, It won't get them high

Due to nicotine fits, I buy another pack
Every morning I hack, my lungs are coated black
And its breathing capability that I sorely lack.
My clothing and my body have a peculiar smell,
And I'm feeling like hell
But the fact that I wheeze a lot doesn't ring a bell.

Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, Light One Up for Me
I'm so addicted to your weed, I'm willing to die
Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, market it as cool
Then they will get ao addicted, It won't get them high

Tobacco marketing involves luring the young
Create a social rung, reach for it with their lung,
And when they get older, their bodies feel like they are
To be hung.
Those old cigarette commericals, are such a dark treasure
Include Newport Pleasure, Add to your daily leisure,
Just go to Marlboro Country.

Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, Light One Up for Me
I'm so addicted to your weed, I'm willing to die
Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, market it as cool
Then they will get so addicted, It won't get them high

Philip Morris has changed, their name, moniker to Altria,
It sure makes good trivia, a public panacea
In that Philip Morris's image you can't see-a.
Cigarette chemicals are not just dangerous
Cyanide is obvious, Lead is not just oblivious,
I would pay it all my mind, Carbon Monoxide is
so clear, but obnoxious.

Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, Light One Up for Me
I'm so addicted to your weed, I'm willing to die
Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, market It As Cool
Then they will get ao addicted, It won't get them high

Well, let's watch Bette Davis through the smoke rings in the film,
Let us hear some Nat King Cole, along with Mary Wells,
See Betty Grable's legs, and Edward R. Murrow
Humphrey Bogart is in Casablanca.
Yes, Desi Arnaz who was the inventor of the rerun,
brought millions of people fun, smoked along with Lucy,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the ground,
Let's not forget about who died of lung cancer.

Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, Light One Up for Me
I'm so addicted to your weed, I'm willing to die
Hey, Mr. Tobacco Man, market It As cool
Then they will get ao addicted, It won't get them high
