"Marlboro Lights" as written by and David Kenneth Tomlinson....
I'm off to spend some time
Off to spend some time
Spend some vouchers
Got to find a well oiled machine
And take my seat amongst the vultures
Play for all those hidden treasures

Somebody turn off those Marlboro Lights

Do I have to take these pills?
They make me feel so drowsy
Do I have to take these pills?
They make me feel so, so very lousy

You read a magazine
And I'll play the fruit machine
Throwing all those pearls I won
Back into the same stream

Somebody turn off those Marlboro Lights

Why are you telling me?
I don't want to know
Got a pocket full of token gestures
And not a well meant penny to spend
Watch for

I don't know when to hold you
And when I should ignore you
I'm helplessly devoted to you

Silly planet lost a bet
Said money cannot sing
The naked planet wants a drink
So I'll buy this round with diamond rings
Beware of your fingers

Somebody turn off those Marlboro Lights
I can see fine without those Marlboro Lights
I can't see a thing for all those Marlboro Lights
I don't need to calm my nerves with Marlboro Lights
And the Billboard Skies
And Tobacco Beaches
Are all beyond my reaches...
