Johnny's in the basement Mixing up the medicine I'm on the pavement Thinking about the government The man in the trench coat Badge out, laid off Says he's got a bad cough Wants to get it paid off Look out, kid It's something you did God knows when But you're doing it again You better duck down the Alley way looking 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 Talking that the heat Put plants in the bed but The phone's tapped anyway Maggie says that many say They must bust in early May Orders from the D. A. Look out, kid Don't matter what you did Walk on your tip toes Don't try No Doz Better stay away from those That carry around a fire hose Keep a clean nose Watch the plain clothes You don't 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 going to sell Try hard, get barred Get back, write braille Get jailed, jump bail Join the army if you fail

Look out, kid You're gonna get hit But users, cheaters Six-time losers Hang around the theaters Girl by the whirlpool's Looking for a new fool Don't follow leaders Watch the parking 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, don't steal, don't lift Twenty years of schooling 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 Don't wear sandals Try to avoid the scandals Don't wanna be a bum You better chew gum The pump don't work Cause the vandals took the handles
