Oh, don't cough on me man
Cause I ain't got lungs to breathe with
You know those ciggeratte ditties
It's outta sight...it's all right

Hey man, Winston, you blow my mind,
Take a drag
Hey man, I can't smoke this stuff no way
Hey man, stogie I'll burn here
There's only one more lung, and I'm having fun

Whoa, don't diss on me man
Cause you can't afford the cancer
I'm hooked on ciggarette ditties
Oh, don't cough on me man
Cause I ain't got lungs to breathe with
You know those ciggeratte ditties
It's outta sight...it's all right
Oh, shitty!

Oh ciggeratte, ciggarette!

I always wondered about that Kinks line: "'Cause he likes his fags the best, 'cause he's better than the rest."
