Listen,
Listen to this song
I was tall, I was strong
When I had to go
Went to the Tropics
Beneath the Capricorn
My captain said :
"You have a cancer of the lungs"

I said amen to the smoke of tobacco
I said amen to the divine holocaust...

You ask me "why do you smoke ?"
You talk and talk and talk
You never have a look at the clouds
You see, in Heaven, angels smoke too
They do get bored like me, like you

And if it's no stress, I guess
It must be happiness
That madeem send those lovely S.O.S...
I was born to die of cancer
No matter if I smoke

I was stressed, I was oppressed
I felt pain, I felt dread
I was born to die of cancer
No matter if I smoke

Marlboro, Marlboro lights, Dunhill gold.
Lucy Strike, Camel blend, Craven A,
Gauloises blondes, Benson Hedges...

Doctor says : "it's suicide"
It's true we don't have so much time
To start a cure of disintoxication
It's hard to be modern
To be careful with your health
I'm not a sportsman after all
"Cult of the Body destroys the Soul"

We have to roll on, we have to roll on
Hash to hash, dust to dust
I was still smoking on the verge of dying...
Hash to hash, dust to dust...
