I WISH I HAD A CIGARETTE

I WISH I HAD A CIGARETTE


i wish i had a cigarette
i sure could use a smoke
but i'm stuck alone, the car is dead
and i'm already broke

i wish i had a carton
or even just a pack
or even just a single one
so i could hit the sack

cause tomorrow i'm gonna quit
just get rid of it
i don't need something that does this

i wish i had a cigarette
i'd tear the filter off
light a match, enjoy myself
prelude to a cough

i wish i had a cigarette
of fresh tobacco leaves
but instead i guess i'll go to bed
to have a chance to breathe

cause tomorrow i'm gonna quit
just get rid of it
i don't need something that does this
