Being “burned out” is a colloquialism for being overworked and exhausted. To be “smokin’” is a colloquialism for being extremely physically attractive. Together these idioms are a play on words that could mean despite one feeling stressed and tired, they are still sexually appealing. Another possible meaning is that one is carrying on, smoking cigarrettes or working quickly (other meanings of smokin') even though they are feeling stressed.
