"Cigarettes & Alcohol" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Is it my imagination
Or have I finally found something worth living for?
I was looking for some action
But all I found was cigarettes and alcohol

You could wait for a lifetime
To spend your days in the sunshine
You might as well do the white line
'Cause when it comes on top . . .

You gotta make it happen!
Is it worth the aggravation
To find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for?
It's a crazy situation

But all I need are cigarettes and alcohol!
You could wait for a lifetime
To spend your days in the sunshine
You might as well do the white line

'Cause when it comes on top...
You gotta make it happen!

    General CommentI can't believe that this song has beenher for 18 months and viewed that many times and yet no-one has commented. This just is the song of my youth. Brit pop. Blur -v- Oasis. Attitude and you just don't give a damn. You feel invincible and all you need is a fag and a pint and you're fine. C'mon you allmust have felt like that!

    General CommentLiam&Noel say.. Cigarettes & Alcohol- "IT IS FUCKING ROCK!!! When people hear it they start smashing things up or pinching things. Someone wrote and told me they were bored one day, then they heard that song and decided to go out shoplifting. Brilliant. I wanted to write a song that was like Cum On Feel The Noize by Slade. A proper, boozy anthem."

    General CommentTells it like it is, but don't get carried away, its saying how people cope with shit. Country House has lyrics that says something different and does that well.
