The Lyrics

After I've had my last cigarette
When my lungs are as black as they're gonna get
Well, I'm still wide awake cause I'm hacking in bed--
I was a fool to smoke this long

And after my voice is too hoarse to speak
And all I have left is my high-pitched squeak
And I no longer have my beautiful teeth
I was a fool to smoke this long

I was a fool to pay
About 6 bucks a day
For hard packs of Camel lights
And I was a fool to putz around with those butts
Til I found myself in this plight

And after I've been with somebody new
But she can't stand my breath
Cause it's toxic as glue
Then I know what I've lost and I know it's so true
When I see what it cost and What I'm goin thru
I was a fool
I was a fool to smoke this long
