lyrics

Sherlock's pipe is Elementary
Fidel Castro's cigar is Muy Bueno
For Einstein the matter's not Relative
He knows tobacco is good for your Brain-o

Thomas Edison would've loved the Electric Cigarette
Alexander Graham-Bell heard tobacco's call
George Orwell hid his habit from Big Brother
Adam & Eve chewed on leaves before the fall

then along came a most unholy alliance
of corrupt politicians and fraudulent science
the first smoking ban of modern times
was started by Hitler in 1939
(nobody likes a Hitler)

So, strike up a match for freedom, take a long drag for liberty
We'll gather outside in solidarity and pride
for smokers make the best company
Let's All Light Up, Let's All Light Up
We love tobacco won't ever give it up
Let's All Light Up

Dr. Seuss was no Grinch with is pipe
Charles Darwin studied species of shag
Tolkien had a Hobbit of smoking everyday
Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung shared a fag

Mark Twain smoked 40 cigars a day
and like Picasso, Renoir and Van Gogh
He said if smoking's not allowed in Heaven, boys
then to Heaven we shall not go

Then along came a most sinister coalition
of the Boys in Big Pharma and their Puppet Politicians
Natural tobacco's not organic anymore
for the Fascists added chemicals in 1984
(nobody likes a Fascist)

So, strike up a match for freedom, take a long drag for liberty
We'll gather outside in solidarity and pride
for smokers make the best company
Let's All Light Up, Let's All Light Up
We love tobacco won't ever give it up
Let's All Light Up

John F Kennedy was partial to Cubans
Marilyn Monroe always kept a secret stash
John Lennon Imagined he'd be sharing a smoke
with Bob Dylan, Miles Davis and Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash traded Lucky's at Folsom
Frank Sinatra smoked cigarettes His Way
and without a stogie Alfred Hitchcock went Psycho
John Wayne rolled his own on the Range

He rolled his own on the Range
when a plague hit the planet one day
Those who’ve smoked all their lives
were the ones who survived
and the skies were not cloudy all day

then along came the dictates from the Elite Classes
of Greedy Governments and Corporate Jackasses
The biggest crackdown on smoking the world's ever seen
thanks to the Neo-Nazi's of 2014
(nobody likes a Nazi)

So, strike up a match for freedom, take a long drag for liberty
We'll gather outside in solidarity and pride
for smokers make the best company
Let's All Light Up, Let's All Light Up
We love tobacco won't ever give it up
Let's All Light Up
