- Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette) by Tex Williams (1947)
- They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa! by Napoleon XIV (1966)
Remember when you used to tease me?
How you'd mimic smoking a cigarette,
Start bopping your shoulders, and sing
That little catchy tune by Tex Williams :
"Smoke smoke smoke that cigarette
Puff puff puff
And if you smoke yourself to death
Tell St Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hate to make him wait
But you just gotta have another cigarette"
Very exaggeratedly, you'd puff,
And purse your lips, blowing imaginary
Smoke, while giving me the biggest smile
With the brightest twinkle in your eye.
Then, there were those other times
When joking about the craziness
Was our only refuge, and you'd theatrically
Render this odd one by Napoleon XIV :
"And, they're coming to take me away ha-ha
They're coming to take me away ho ho hee hee ha ha
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men
In their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away ha ha"
To this day, I hear the bars of
Those songs in specific contexts,
And I see your silly self goofing off.
Remember how we used to laugh?
