    Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette
    Puff! Puff! Puff!
    And if you puff yourself to death,
    Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate,
    That you hate to make him wait,
    But you got to have another cigarette.

    Smoke Smoke Smoke that Cigarette Singer: Phil Harris, Writers: Tex Williams, Merle Travis

    Here we are out of cigarettes
    Holding hands and yawning
    Look how late it gets
    Two sleepy people by dawn’s early light
    And too much in love to say goodnight

    Two Sleepy People Singer: Dean Martin; Writers: Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser

    Two cigarettes in an ashtray
    My love and I, in a small cafe
    Then a stranger came along
    And everything went wrong
    Now there’s three cigarettes in the ashtray

    Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray Singer: Patsy Cline; Writers: Eddie Miller, W Stevenson, W S Stevenson
