“I’m Not So Fake”
By Jennings Jr. High

CHORUS
We don’t smoke, or get high, ya know why? Because it cause cancer. (x4)

VERSE 1
I’m a Cancer, but I don’t even want it though,
That’s why I paid attention in school and said no to dope.
My partner ask me if I had a five, yeah, if you’re talking about a handshake.
Man, see you if you graduate.
Puff, Puff, Passing. We’re passing classes,
In the hallway throwing up Jacksons.
Where did you get that money from, they all are asking,
I just read the Surgeon General like the rest of ya’ll.

VERSE 2
I was walking down the street on a hot summer day,
I stopped by the park just to work my J.
I was doing real good until I saw somebody smoking,
I told him not to smoke and he thought I was joking.
Then time went by about 1 or 2 years,
And I saw the boy again, and his eyes were filled with tears.
I asked him what was wrong, and he had no answer,
Then one month later he died from lung cancer.

VERSE 3
Number one killer in America,
RJ Reynolds, Phillip Morris…we’re never scared of you.
One, Two, Three to the Four.
He smoke, she smoke, I smoke? No.
Tobacco…it’s going to get you.
You better run or keep your gas mask with you.
Everyday smokers steady fade away,
Don’t want to die? Then this is what you say.
