The Lyrics

This song has a very weird rhyme scheme. I tried to match it.
Ciggies banned from bars
Stupid laws I think are silly
Must smoke in my car
My family can't stand
Now they've gone too far
I'm such a puffin' man
I have my favorite brand

Ciggies sometimes suck
Screwed up lungs and screwed up taste buds
And that big cancer thing
But I'll lick that by running
And a little good luck
Don't have a quitting plan
I must smoke where I can

So where is the lighter?
Addiction is making its call
At home I don't fight her
Cause she doesn't like the stink
And so I come here to drink

Ciggies grab your mind
Smokeless folks don't think like you do
Like tossing your trash
And flicking ash
And spending too much cash
But now they've gone too far
I used to like this bar

Standing out in the downpour
Ciggie sucked up right to the butt
Like a leper from old times
Though the things have killed off friends
I know I'll puff till the end

Ciggies win the war................

Like you, Rick, I'll give a carton of fives to any parody that mocks smoking.

This parody is smokin! Good job working the rhyme scheme as well.

I quit smoking in July after 9 long years, and I couldn't be happier about it. But I would like to state for the record that I was never a litterbug smoker. I always deposited my butts in the proper receptacles. I always hated it when people just threw their butts out the window or whatever - it made the rest of us look bad! Great job, Rick!
