The Lyrics

This parody actually came about when my son (aged 15) and I were listening to this song on the radio...kind of spontaneous... he thought Steve Winwood was saying "Bring me an iron lung" .... so I wrote it from there and I dedicate it to anyone who ever tried to quit smoking !
Drink without it, there must be a pack of smokes
Down deep inside my pockets or on a hook inside my coat
Without it, I would waste away
Looking for a drag, gotta craving that won't end
Cannot find a smoke anywhere
In this whole house, cupboards bare
I cough up blood, I gotta stop
Those damn smokes, thats enough !

Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Where's that iron lung, I keep thinking of?

Skin's turning green, but I'm hanging tall
Facing my maker with a Camel in my jaw
I'm craving, and it's real I see
Must be someone out there with an extra pack for me
It's getting bad everywhere
I can't smoke anywhere
I cough and choke, and I feel weak
Fall on the ground, I need to breathe

Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Where's that iron lung, I keep thinking of?

Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
No more smokes, just my iron lung

I can't wait for it
I am too late for it
Until the end, I'll puff my smokes
And drink some cheer all night long
Bring it...oh, bring it

I could light one up and set my mattress on fire
or I could toss the pack into some briars
Let me feel that air come over me
Let me breathe again, so I can be

Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Bring me an iron lung
Where's that iron lung I keep thinking of?
