Free ration pack cigarettes were daily given to me.
When I was on winter scheme the Camels were free.
I bought them in the NAFFI for ten cents a pack.
On the road runs in the morning I started to hack.
So I quit smoking cigs and I kept on drinking beer
Until my belly protruded and I got a fat rear.
Hung over one morning I took the church pledge.
Drinking’s a thing that can push one o’er the edge.
I don’t smoke and don’t drink now I just overeat.
I have an uncomfortable time sitting in a plane seat.
So now I am on a diet and I will try to get thin
With the help of my daughters and my wife Lynne.
A tourist behind me over at Jake Spelt’s coffee shop
Lit up a Marlboro and I came to a direct stop.
The nicotine Turkish tobacco wafted up my nose.
And I almost asked him, could I have one of those?
So it seems I’m still addicted even though I don’t smoke.
The youngsters cough and they hack and it ain’t no joke.
Tiger Woods so they say, he’s addicted to sex?
Jesse James – he is too: wonder who will be next?
