  • One, two, three, four

    So let me set the scene
    It's two in the afternoon and 34 degrees
    The Queensland harsh summer heat
    Had me sweating buckets up and down my street
    It was there I spied the bloke
    Perched atop of his milk crate throne
    He eyed me off as I approached
    Then he said

    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone

    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone

    So it's Tuesday morning
    And my Centrelink hasn't come through
    So I pick up the phone because I've got some abusing to do
    But all I get is elevator music
    Waiting on the line
    On hold all the time
    All I get is elevator music
    Waiting on the line
    'Til I get a reply

    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone

    Ah, ah what time is it?
    Is it Smoko?

    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
    I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone Writer/s: Eamon Zambia Sandwith, Joshua Price, Matthew Boggis
