I Lost a Lung

(to the tune of “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”)

Copyright © 2011 Kevin Ahern


Cigarettes kill millions of people each year - more than alcohol, traffic accidents, illegal drugs, and wars combined.

I have no respect for companies that make these things and this song was my way of saying so.
The superb recording by David Simmons is downloadable HERE.


You’ve gone and left me breathless, so especially today

An absence from my body makes it hard to say

I’m so horribly upset and reminded evermore

I’ll not forget - how you took my breath away


I lost a lung from smoking Camels

Emphysema kills, it seems to me

You see those nicotines and tars 

Leave alveolar scars

My raspy throat will often choke, from the smoke


I’ve no respect for RJ Reynolds

And its cor---por-a-toc-rac-y

Now when I hear the name, RJ Reynolds

I only think malignancy
