I think I'm smoking too much too many cigarettes
And with a sore throat coming on why don't I
Get to bed watch a string
Of late movies there're some pretty good ones on
Tonight the apartment is colder than
Usual when it's usually verging on broiling if I were
A lobster I wouldn't be getting a sore throat and certainly
Wouldn't be smoking and cigarettes are so high
In New York an odd situation in Vermont
I'm going to stop smoking even
Though I love to smoke like a
Turk in Tulsa the cigarettes are cheaper and Dick
Is smoking them up pretty soon he'll be back
To enjoy the luxury of smoking as opposed to the habit
I ought to read Cendrars but
He makes me want to smoke and squint and hit
Someone in the heart as you've hit me
Every day this week and I'm glad I don't drink so there
