LYRICS

Cigarettes & Whiskey

Once I was happy I had a good wife
I had enough money to last me for life
Then I met with a woman, we went on a spree
She taught me to drink and smoke whisky

Chorus:
Cigarettes and whisky and wild wild women
They’ll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane
Cigarettes and whisky and wild wild women
They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane

Cigarettes is a blot on the whole human race
A man is a monkey with one in his face
So gather around friends and listen dear brother
There’s a fire on one end and a fool on the other

You got any advice on the subject brother Derroll?
Yes indeed

Now listen dear neighbours, now listen dear friends
These are the words that they’ll write at your end
Now these are the words they will write at your grave
From women and whisky here lies a poor slave
