Walking down the road with a pistol in your waist
Johnny you're too bad
Walking down the road with a ratchet in your waist
Johnny you're too bad

You're just robbin' now you're stabbin'
Now you're lootin' now you're shootin'
Boy too bad
(Too bad)
You're just robbin' and you're stabbin'
Now you're lootin' now you're shootin'
Boy too bad
(Too bad)

One of these days when you hear a voice say "Come"
Where you gonna run to?
One of these days when you hear a voice say "Come"
Where you gonna run to?

You're gonna run to the rock for rescue
There'll be no rock
(No rock)
You're gonna run to the rock for rescue
There'll be no rock
(Nowhere)

Struttin' up from shantytown
With a pistol at high waist
Johnny you're too bad

Struttin' up from shantytown
With a ratchet at high waist
Johhny you're too bad

You're just robbin' now you're stabbin'
Now you're lootin' now you're shootin'
Boy too bad
