The Great Leveller

Sweet old ladies, mafia dons
World politicians, ex-crims and cons
Young innocent teenagers, loutish punks
Rock stars, film stars, handsome hunks

Checkout chicks, garbage collectors
Teachers, sailors, company directors
Artists, writers, shopkeepers too
Infact, the entire mixed up motley crew

When they are under the cigarette's power
They can barely go an hour
Before they all become trembling wrecks
They're all into it, up to their necks

The power of the little white stick
Is quite unbelievable, it's a conjuring trick
It's hard to grasp, absolutely amazing
Don't take them away, or they'll come out blazing

The little white sticks rule mafia dons
The little white sticks rule ex-crims and cons
The little white sticks rule shopkeepers too
The little white sticks rule the whole motley crew

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)
