The Lyrics

Puff and have a drag on that killer nicotine
Cancer eats away your lungs, helps to stop you breathe;
Buy them in their packets of 25 or more
And if your over 18 years it's not against the law

People start out smoking cause they reckon that its tough
Well medically that's quite insane, you shouldn't touch the stuff
It wrecks your lungs and stains your hands, gives a cough for life
And when you can no longer breathe, you know that you're in strife

Puff and have a drag on that killer nicotine
Cancer eats away your lungs, helps to stop you breathe,
Cough and wheeze and splutter then come back for more,
You'll end up at Peter Mac's or a hole 6 foot by 3

Finally we say friends, avoid that lethal drug,
For if you keep on smoking it's your own grave I'll be dug,
Just more nails in your coffin, a decision on your own
So quit right now and say no buts and you might make old bones

Puff and have a drag on that killer nicotine
Cancer eats away your lungs, helps to stop you breathe;
Buy them in their packets of 25 or more
And if your over 18 years it's not against the law

I would give 5 points if it would not be this hard....this is cruel, wolfish!!!

Pretty good for what it is, but it comes off a bit strident. You could probably make the same point with a bit of humor. I liked the way you turned 'Dragon' to 'drag on'.
