Some days are just not the right days to quit smoking.

lyrics

Smokin’


You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off

Woke up with the light
Despair like unwashed hair
Coffee wash me
So I can look in the mirror
Mercury retrograde
Nothin’s going my way
Just so happens
Today’s my birthday

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off

I broke up with my man
He was draggin’ me bad
But we still lived together
That month lasted forever
Now that it’s over
He’s actin’ all nice
Bought me a birthday present
/
well if he had done that sooner
I could have been his wife

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off

Sometimes I smoke cuz I’m happy
Sometimes I smoke cuz I’m sad
Sometimes I smoke cuz it’s handy
Sometimes I smoke cuz I’m MAD!

Sometimes I need your lovin’
Sometimes I need to run to the hills
Sometimes I just want somebody
To give me some PILLS!
You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off

Some days are bad
Some days are worse
Sometimes I think my life is under some kind of curse
Nothing is right
Everything is wrong
What did I do
To have to write this song

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to take a load off

You know it’s time
You know it’s time time time
Time to blow some smoke off
