Funky Cigarette

Paolo Nutini

Well I smoked this thing one night out as a bet,
and they told me it was kinda like a funky cigarette,
and I can still remember my first draw
and all those funny things I saw when I smoked my
first Funky Cigarette

well I opened up my best friends buscuit tin
and there's no Rich Teas or Custard Creams just
cigarrets and skins,
and then he handed me a pack of green and the biggest
bag I've ever seen and I rolled my first funky

And since that day I seldom have declined,
and I maintain this love affair with these green herbs
of mine
you can keep your pills and trips and lines
expensive beers and fancy wines 'cos I just want a
Funky Cigarette

And nowadays it's harder to disguise
then wondering old sedated look that's glazed across
my eyes
well if you're like me I'm sure you'll find
that you don't really seem to mind
'cos you just had a funky cigarette!
