Goin' Up In Smoke

Goin' Up In Smoke

Eddie Kendricks

Talked to my friend again today

Forty days, forty nights
It rained all over the world to be exact
Sinners played, disobeyed
The word comin' down, that's a fact

Some people took it for a joke
Just can't understand
They nailed our Savior to the cross
But He told them all He would rise again, rise again

I talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say, he said

We're goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
And we ain't got no hope, we're goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
And we ain't got no hope 'cause we're goin' up in smoke

I talked to my friend again today

Don't be afraid by what I say
Don't wait till judgment day, start to pray
Stop the hate, killin', now
We'll all have to go anyhow

Everybody's havin' tons of fun
But who's gonna take the blame?
Each day the sun gets close to earth
Soon we'll all go up in burnin' flames, burnin' flames

Talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say, he said

We're goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
And we ain't got no hope 'cause we're goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope 'cause we're goin' up in smoke

Oh, I talked to my friend again today

Everybody's havin' tons of fun
Who's gonna take the blame?
Each day the sun gets close to earth
Soon we'll all go up in burnin' flames, burnin' flames

Talked to my friend again today
This is what he had to say, he said

We're goin up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
And we ain't got no hope 'cause we're goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
Hey, we ain't got no hope 'cause we're goin' up in smoke

Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, 'cause we're goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, goin' up in smoke

Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, goin' up in smoke
Goin', goin'

Sinners played, disobeyed
The word comin' down that's why we're
Goin' up in smoke and we ain't got no hope
Oh, no, no, no
Goin', everybody's havin' tons of fun
Who wanna take the blame?

Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, goin' up in smoke

Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, 'cause we're goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
We ain't got no hope, goin' up in smoke
Goin' up in smoke, goin' up in smoke
