I smoked cigars and cigarettes,
I puffed upon a mellow pipe,
Drank brandy by the tubful,
Ate pastries, beef and tripe,
Before I learned the hazards
Of the way that I was living
And cut my bacchanalian feasts
Down to Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I've rid my house once and for all
Of every deleterious weed,
Smashed bottles like a virago
On a temperance stampede.
So now I'm fit and healthy
Like marathoners and their ilk.
I partake of fruit and salad
Washed down with water and skim milk.
All smokers and imbibers
And gross gluttons I now shun.
And I spend my evenings wondering
What's there to do for fun?
