For several years I had been content

    Taking my Antioxident

    Most of the experts had seemed to agree

    That life was prolonged taking A C and E

    So I swallowed them down

    My fears to assuage

    Assured I would live to a ripe old age

    Now the previous research is clouded and muddy

    ‘Cause someone came up with a negative study

    They gave the vitamins to men who smoke

    And they died much faster from bad hearts and stroke

    Since I don’t smoke and I’m not a man

    Cigarettes can’t kill me but the studies sure can!
