cigarette of a single man  
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      The cigarette of a single man  
      Burns in the ashtray by his bed  
      He pulls the ring of another can  
      And holds it up beside his head  
      The book he reads is on the floor  
      Hes read it several times before  

      What you got to go home to?  

      The cigarette of a single man  
      Sits in the ashtray on the bar  
      He sits and sifts through several plans  
      But knows alone he wont go far  
      He needs the love another has  
      To help him, if another can  

      The cigarette of a single man  
      Lays in the gutter by his side  
      Now hes one of those little lambs  
      Who strayed too far from the flock to find  
      Hes better off without the grief  
      That people wear between their teeth  

      And in his mouth as hes asleep  
      The cigarette of a single man
