Reasons to quit
The smoke and beer don't do me like before
And I'm hardly ever sober
And my old friends don't come 'round much anymore

Reasons to quit
The low is always lower than the high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why

So we keep smokin' and we keep drinkin'
Havin' fun and never thinkin'
Laughin' at the price tags the we pay
And we keep roarin' down the fast lane
Like two young men feelin' no pain
And the reasons for quitin's are gettin' bigger each day

Reasons to quit
I can't afford the habit all the time
I need be sober, I need to write some new songs that will rhyme

Reasons to quit
There have no rhyme or reason when you're high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why

And we keep smokin' and we keep drinkin'
Havin' fun and never thinkin'
Laughin' at the price tags the we pay
And we keep roarin' down the fast lane
Like two young men feelin' no pain
And the reasons for quitin's are gettin' bigger each day
And the reasons for quitin's are gettin' bigger each day
