Your parents will tell you don’t smoke so you must obey but at the same time sit there and watch them smoke their lives away.


All that nicotine ain’t gone do nothing but clog their airway but hey what can you say you’re just a kid that must obey.


So you sit down and figure they’ll come around.


But they never do. So I’m telling you now don’t go around smoking trying to be cool.


Cigarettes are just harmful a distraction, and I think it’s time for us to take action! Why let these drugs have the satisfaction of killing our youth?


To tell you the truth tobacco is something our generation needs to let go.


So join me and let’s stay tobacco free!
