It used to be not long ago bad habits ruled my life

They cost me everything I'd known… my home… my job… my wife

That hit me hard… smack in my face… a shocking ice-cold shower

I saw my life one sad disgrace… I had to find my power

 

I can't remember when it was when first I took to drink

It numbed my pain but dumbed my mind to where I couldn't think

I've toked that locoweed which no one innocently grows

I've climbed the sky… nine miles high… white garbage up my nose

 

I'm here to say I'm comin' clean and I'm hangin' on that wagon

I'm feelin' good… my chin is up… my butt's no longer draggin'

I've quit 'most everything I've done that made my life turn blue

So now… you nasty cigarette… my only vice is you!

You've scorched my shirts and fouled my breath and singed my 'stache with fire

You've stained my teeth and transformed me into a shunned pariah

I'm snortin' mad to stay smoke-free… it's tough and I'm not lyin'

'Cause if you have your way with me I'll surely wind up dyin'

 

I'm here to say I'm comin' clean and I'm hangin' on that wagon

I'm feelin' good… my chin is up… my butt's no longer draggin'

I've quit 'most everything I've done that made my life turn blue

So now… you nasty cigarette… my only vice is you!

 

You've stunk my house and funked my car and gunked my lungs to wheezin'

You've held me up to ridicule and unrelenting teasin'

I pray each day to stay smoke-free… I swear I'll keep on tryin'

'Cause if you have your way with me I'll surely wind up dyin'

 

I'm here to say I'm comin' clean and I'm hangin' on that wagon

I'm feelin' good… my chin is up… my butt's no longer draggin'

I've quit 'most everything I've done that made my life turn blue

So now… you nasty cigarette… my only vice is you!

So now… you nasty cigarette… my only vice is you!

 

(Man, I've gotta quit these things

They're gonna put me in an early grave!)
