    Johnnys in the basement
    Mixing up the medicine
    Im on the pavement
    Thinking about the government
    The man in the trench coat
    Badge out, laid off
    Says hes got a bad cough
    Wants to get it paid off
    Look out kid
    Its somethin you did
    God knows when
    But youre doin it again
    You better duck down the alley way
    Lookin for a new friend
    The man in the coon-skin cap
    In the big pen
    Wants eleven dollar bills
    You only got ten

    Maggie comes fleet foot
    Face full of black soot
    Talkin that the heat put
    Plants in the bed but
    The phones tapped anyway
    Maggie says that many say
    They must bust in early may
    Orders from the d. a.
    Look out kid
    Dont matter what you did
    Walk on your tip toes
    Dont try no doz
    Better stay away from those
    That carry around a fire hose
    Keep a clean nose
    Watch the plain clothes
    You dont need a weather man
    To know which way the wind blows

    Get sick, get well
    Hang around a ink well
    Ring bell, hard to tell
    If anything is goin to sell
    Try hard, get barred
    Get back, write braille
    Get jailed, jump bail
    Join the army, if you fail
    Look out kid
    Youre gonna get hit
    But losers, cheaters
    Six-time users
    Hang around the theaters
    Girl by the whirlpool
    Lookin for a new fool
    Dont follow leaders
    Watch the parkin meters

    Ah get born, keep warm
    Short pants, romance, learn to dance
    Get dressed, get blessed
    Try to be a success
    Please her, please him, buy gifts
    Dont steal, dont lift
    Twenty years of schoolin
    And they put you on the day shift
    Look out kid
    They keep it all hid
    Better jump down a manhole
    Light yourself a candle
    Dont wear sandals
    Try to avoid the scandals
    Dont wanna be a bum
    You better chew gum
    The pump dont work
    cause the vandals took the handles
