lyrics

Wednesday morning I woke up late
Not so hungry but I ate
Eggs and white toast on a plate
With a black coffee I contemplate
Doing my laundry but I hate
Wasting my day so I debate,
Watching TV talking about
Current unemployment rate
I looked for a cigarette in my pocket
Cause I forget I quit smoking so many years ago
But who cares how long I can live this life?
It's no one else's business if I don't have a wife
I take it easy with no trouble and strife
It's like I'm walking on the ...
"Bon chiki ba ban, bon chiki ba ban!"

Smoking on Bali Shag I rolled up leaning against the wall
Oh I'm feeling lazy and gray
Ooo "c'est la vie" like smoke goes up and then ashes fall
In search of a bright & happy day

Wanna go to a bar but I can't
I got drunk like an elephant
Today I feel like a tiny ant
Here in Bedford-Stuyvesant
Let me roll another cigarette
Thinking of the girl that I met
Kissed on her cheek after the set
Playing in a band, that's what I get
I would have never made it this far, had I never had my guitar
While an average boy choose to buy himself a car
Oh where's my day going through the cloud?
Somewhere I hear the hip-hop music playing loud
Just take it easy, no need to overcrowd my head
Otherwise, I would go "bon chiki ba ban, bon chiki ba ban!"

Smoking on Bali Shag, what's her name? I can't recall
Oh can't believe she's still seventeen!
Ooo "c'est la vie" like smoke goes up and then ashes fall
And I live somewhere in between
(SOLO)

Smoking on Bali Shag I rolled up leaning against the wall
Oh I'm singing Doris Day!
"Que sera sera" like smoke goes up and then ashes fall
In search of a bright & happy day

Smoking on Bali Shag I rolled up leaning against the wall
Oh I'm feeling lazy and gray
Ooo "c'est la vie" like smoke goes up and then ashes fall
In search of a bright & happy day
