The Patriot Brand jingles were written by Ben Acker, Ben Blacker and Andy Paley.
“Start off your day light up the American way
Those founding fathers picked a crop
That launched our nation to the top
Smoke smoke smoke for Uncle Sam
Pledge you allegiance
To Patriot Brand.”
Patriot Brand ElitesEdit
“Oh to be, in the high society
A string of pearls and evening gown
About to step out on the town
But I don’t leave my penthouse suite
Unless I’m packing
A pack of Elites.
The air is rare, I’m sorry life’s not fair
Let common folk take common tokes
While we smoke the champagne of smokes
Let’s take a stroll down easy street
All the high rollers
Are smokin’ Elites.”

Bbc news – cigarette packet branding to face consultation
Packets will be a dark olive green, after the public was asked what the least attractive colour was.
Research published in Australia has suggested that cigarette packets have increasingly become an important marketing tool as restrictions on advertising and sponsorship have been brought in.
Mr Lansley told the Times he was open minded, but that he believed attractive packaging helped recruit smokers from a young age.
More than 300,000 children aged under 16 in England try smoking each year, according to government figures.
The consultation will also examine if plain packaging could lead to a rise in cigarette packets being sold on the black market.
Mr Lansley said the tobacco companies used certain colours to trigger memories and their brands constituted a type of advertising.
“We don’t want to work in partnership with the tobacco companies because we are trying to arrive at a point where they have no business in this country,” he added.
The consultation document is expected to suggest that branded tobacco packets create “smoker identity”, with certain brands seen as “cool” and “popular”, the paper reported.
It is also expected to say that tobacco firms use colours and logos to boost their profits.
The Tobacco Manufacturers’ Association said it “welcomed” the consultation.
But Jane Chisholm Caunt, secretary general of the TMA, said “There is no reliable evidence plain packaging will reduce rates of youth smoking.
“Smoking initiation in children is actually linked to a complex range of socio economic factors including home life, peer pressure and truancy and exclusion from school.”
And she warned plain packaging would only serve to make counterfeiting cigarettes easier.
Simon Clark, director of the smokers’ group Forest which runs the “Hands Off Our Packs” campaign, added “The consultation on plain packaging threatens to be a farce.
“Andrew Lansley says he is open minded yet he clearly supports plain packaging even before the consultation has begun.”
Smoking rates have fallen significantly since the link with cancer was established beyond doubt in the 1950s.
But it recent years the decline has slowed with the number of adult smokers hovering above the 21% for some time.
Ministers have promised to reduce this to 18.5% by 2015.
