All of the dicks in this dick town

M-e-n piled up in a towering mound

To keep Johnny down

Spending days by myself

Remembering slights
          A           B
I'm not a monument to justice
                   C
Plus which I don't forget a face

That will keep old Johnny down (down, down, down)

Hitting golf balls on the moon
C               G   D
Bathroom in his pants

  Beneath my dignity 
   Em
To flip off the guy
        A             B
When he pulls up alongside

To say my gas cap is unscrewed

Can't know what's in here (down, down, down)
C                          G  D C
And they can't keep Johnny down (down, down, down)
