The Lyrics

I just found out the woman I love is a smoker. Not only that, but she was photographed smoking a cigarette while she was pregnant. I still love her, but she's got to go. Maybe it's a Dorian Gray type of thing: She smokes, and it's her husband who looks like he's inhaled two packs a day for 50 years.
asked me how I knew
she and I were through.
Oy vey
I of course replied
stopped Winona's ride
due to lungs' inside.
(Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, whoa)

hack and wheeze and belch
as did Raquel Welch.
Oy vey
When that stick's on fire
you must realize:
Smoke and now Mike cries.

So I'm barkin' at Ellen and say
I can live without our love.
Miss Hayek
You smoke and I say, "Blechhhh!"
That would be sour love.
(Would be sour love!)

Catherine Zeta-Jones
chills me to the bones!
Oy vey
So I sadly say
That's how passion's flame dies.
Smoke and now Mike cries.
(Smoke and now Mike cries.)
(Smoke and now Mike cries.)

Smoke and now Mike

That's Ellen Barkin, not Ellen Degeneres. (We're just good friends.) Other women who broke my heart by smoking include: Maria Conchita Alonso, Shari Belafonte, Helena Bonham Carter (that one hurt), Christie Brinkley, Tia Carrere (that one hurt), Kim Cattrall, Gina Gershon, Debbie/Deborah Gibson, Nicole Kidman (that one hurt), Sharon Lawrence, Jennifer Lopez (that one really hurt), Stefanie Powers, Rene Russo, Brooke Shields, Ione Skye, Mira Sorvino and Vanessa Williams.

Well you can rest assured that I've never smoked and I never will. Unless you count my smokin' bod...; )

I can relate...I broke up with someone in college when I realized she was a smoker (funny how her breath always smelled like tic-tacs!). 555 from someone who's been happily, healthfully married to a parody-tolerant NON-smoker for over 17 years!! ;-)
