The Lyrics

People like Morton Downey Jr and Yul Brynner tried at the end of their lives to tell people that smoking killed them, but very few heard their cries. Another ciggie symbol did the same, but I'll bet you never heard his cries either.
I said I wanna be a star
I wanna be a macho man
I wanna advertise those Marlboros

I said I wanna sell those smokes
Have the bimbos on my arms
I will represent a product
In a print ad with a horse

Oh, it looked good to me-----They said

Cowboy, smoke them away
Try to take all the folks you can
Into the nicotine
Get them hooked ev'ry day
Get them to heaven above by
Selling to teens, selling to teens

I wanna breathe some real air
I wanna quit but cannot
I see death on the horizon
But I see that cemetery plot

I would not be a corp'rate shill
For years and years
And now I shout the truth
But falls on deaf ears

Once it was good for me
Now it's much too late for me

Cowboy, smoke them away
Try to take all the folks you can
Into the nicotine
Get them hooked ev'ry day
Get them to heaven above by
Selling to teens, something obscene

I said I wanna be a star
I wanna be a macho man
I wanna advertise those Marlboros
Oh it looked so good to me

Cowboy, smoke them away
Try to take all the folks you can
Into the nicotine
Get them hooked ev'ry day
Get them to heaven above by
Selling to teens, something obscene
Something obscene...............

It is unfortunate that few people realize the Marlboro Man died of lung cancer. Great job!
