lyrics

before you go to the pub
make sure
that you bring your gloves because
with everyone standing outside smoking
the likelihood they'll leave the door wide open is high
and you'll be left wondering why
you're sitting on your own when it's 'rolly time'
man it's freezing in here
and this atmosphere's lame
but at least my hair will still smell good the next day
whereas outside
they'll be having that debate
which Rizlas to use?
is it greens is it blues?
well, blues have got the glue if you're building one and passing it
but as to whether Cutters Choice has got glass in it
i don't know
but i wouldn't have thought so
it ain't the brand that i would have bought though
i know it ain't exactly weather for shorts
but once it is i'll be out here even more so

nothing brings people together like smoking can
and outside in the smoking gang
they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban
can i borrow your lighter
how's it going man?

you know a bond as strong as a nicotine habit
can help keep a friendship tight for as long as i can rabbit
on
and i can rabbit on and on
until the crack of dawn
or at least until my baccy's gone
i started smoking got a nasty cough
my parents wanted to know why
i had to pass it off
something going 'round college at the time
which it was
we called it dirt bar
smoked it and it cost
only five pounds a teenth
divided by three
and five times a day
we'd wind up our dealer
a trip to the Spar would be on the cards
to pick up some pizza and chocolate bars
because we were (we were)
either (either)
smoking rollies or smoking reefer
and if it's gotta be neither
then half of us probably wouldn't even be here

nothing brings people together like smoking can
and outside in the smoking gang
they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban
can i borrow your lighter?
how's it going man?
nothing brings people together like smoking can
and outside in the smoking gang
they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban
can i borrow your lighter?
how's it going man?

i should know better but i'll have a smoke anyway
even on the very day i say i'll give up smoking
i'm hoping that i'll give it up one day
maybe on monday
but not right now, yeah
i'll pinch the green bit from your Rizla packet
roll one up thin like a prisoner and tap it down
all the way down
