The Lyrics

bald and wan...her lungs all rotten
the girl with emphysema starts coughin'
and as she's hackin', her lungs expandin'....go argggh

when she coughs, it causes trauma
she's smokin' "kools", though detrimental
that's why she's hackin', her lungs expandin'...go ouch

ooh...and i watch her so sadly
how...can she smoke...this i wonder
yes...cigarettes did her badly
but each day, she still craves nicotine
she'll smoke...till she's dead...wait and see

bald and wan...her lungs all rotten
the girl with emphysema starts coughin'
and she'll be hackin'...a while
but still smokes you see
she can't let 'em be
she'll soon be deceased

It never fails; on any given day, you always have a title that makes me laugh by itself. Great stuff.

This song would be great for an anti-tobacco PSA on television; if the contrast between a bouncy tune and gruesome imagery didn't get people's attention, nothing would. 5's all round.
