Bust, butt, end, or cigarette butt?

I'm about to make a video for my latest song, in Spanish, and I would need your advice to clarify a doubt before putting the subtitles in English:

this is the line i want to check, it is the action of dropping a cigarette butt


Thank you!!



...I throw the bust?, butt ? end ?

    I think I can help on this.

    In the english language I've never heard the use of "Bust" when refering to cigarettes ever. "Butt" is difinitly the more commonly used reference, though I'm not sure which side of the pond it originates. Finally "End" that's not a commonly used reference these days, but was when I was a child. Ofcourse, this is all be subject to whatever region of the world you live in!?

  • if you want the alteration. Snub out that cigarette butt

    I recount them from the sidewalk of Yesterday


    Yesterday

    when you loved me

    when you kissed me

    when i laughed

    danced sang lived

    lived



    I light a cigarette,

    I finish it quickly

    snub out the end

    and while I throw it

    I see myself


    How you smoked me

    how you threw me


    No no no no no no no

    I will not tolerate it

    because i am a wolf

    wolf 

    wolf 

    wolf



    i will bite your shadow

    i will bite your furniture

    the carpet

    your bed

    i will leave my trace

    I will bite your steps

    wolf

    snub it out to the end....... I don't think thats correct grammar

    Could be......... Burn it to the end........... That makes sense......that works

    You have smoke in chorus

    you have finish too


     light a cigarette,

    I finish it quickly

    Burn it to the end

    and while I throw it

    I see myself

  • You stub a butt, not snub it
  • either way works

    usually everything in country and in pop , its clearly spelled out

    You would not toss a cig in a house

    qué lío!!!! I really appreciate your time, I think this is the best option for the translation so "let's get to work" I'll do it in the day!!! Stay well and thanks again chico!

    (I hope my way of speaking doesn't bother anyone, my character is impulsive, childish and many other things that I don't control hahaha I'm Spanish, that must be) @ElvisNash

    Naw , I can barely speak english right , But you need the right way of the butt thing , That works . I guess you could throw it , I'm thinking lieterally throwing a burning cig in a house , ashtray works up to you


    I light a cigarette,

    and finish it quickly

    Burn it to the end

    and while I throw it

    I see myself

    Childish works , being a adult is way over rated
