The Lyrics

When I think back on all the packs,
I smoked of King Kools,
It's a wonder I can breathe at all.
If the lack of respiration's got you in a clutch,
Go and read the writings on Pall Malls.

Smokin' jones, those no smoking zones are killers,
Can't smoke with caffeine a bummer,
Makes a stink and the room's a smokey haze, oh yeah.
Smoking don't add no glamour, it'll cut your life in half,
Hey, someone please take this smokin' jones away.

I recall when smokes had their own commercial jingles,
Tarryton's if asked to switch would fight.
I know these smokes will someday cause asphyxiation,
But 'til then, hey there buddy got a light?

Smokin' jones, those no smoking zones are killers,
Can't smoke with caffeine a bummer,
Makes a stink and the room's a smokey haze, oh yeah.
Smoking don't add no glamour, it'll cut your life in half,
Hey, someone please take this smokin' jones away.

Someone please take this smokin' jones away,
Someone please take this smokin' jones away,
Someone please take this smokin' jones away.

someone please take this smokin' jones,
someone please take this smokin' jones,
Someone please take this smokin' jones away.
someone please take this smokin' jones,
Darn it, I left my Viceroy's home,
Someone please take this smokin' jones away.

someone please take this smokin' jones, whew whew.
someone please take this smokin' jones away.

Loved that you put the Taryton slogan in there! When I was about 6, I actually had a shirt that said "I'd rather fight than switch."
