"Last Cigarette" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and David Bryan....
Hey hey it's been so long since I have written with pen
Ya know it's sharper than a sabre, I don't feel like Errol Flynn
Got no computer I can't type the letter in
You're not responding right I guess I better start again
Well lets pretend this fellas hungry got a dozen mouths to feed
He asked for money for a bus pass and my, heart bleeds
I throw him a dollar that's exactly what he needs
To get another jug of Thunderbird and naturally ask me for a

Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
A wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua
A wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua
I know it's killing me
Yea I know it's killing me
Yea I know it's killing me
Yea I know I know I know I know I know I know I need a
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed

(Shut up!)
It's getting late you got to get the kitten fed
You got to kiss the little woman put the children in the bed
Check the sports and weather and the living and the dead
You don't have to read the headlines you can hear what Johnny Carson said
Oh mister sandman won't you listen to me please I'm saying
I'll stay in bed but I'll pretend I'm on my knees and praying
One for my hunger and another for my greed
And just forget about my envy Lord and give me what I need, I need a

Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
A wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua
A wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua, a wha wha wha hua
I know it's killing me
I know it's killing me
I know it's killing me
Yea I know I know I know I know I know I know I need a
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed
Last cigarette, last cigarette, last cigarette, one before I go to bed

    Lyric CorrectionA few mistakes in the transcription, here are the correct lines (I believe):

    "Hey, hey it's been so long since I have written with a pen..."

    "It's getting late, you've got to get the kitten fed..."

    "Oh Mister Sandman, won't you listen to me please..."

    General CommentWe've all got our little rituals and habits that mean more to us than the important stuff. Even if it's not enjoyable, even if it's bad for you, you still need it. Doesn't matter whether you're a rock singer, a homeless wino, or a suburban dad.

    It's pretty funny that someone misidentified this as a cover of the Bon Jovi song of the same name, because it means the exact opposite--Bon Jovi is comparing a girl to a last cigarette because that's how amazing she is, completely without irony.
