Johnny Too Bad

Lyrics: Winston Bailey, Hy Beckford
Music: Winston Bailey, Hy Beckford

Played by Jerry with Melvin Seals in the JGB.

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 robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad (too bad)
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're 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 gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)

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

You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad (too bad)
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad (too bad)
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad (too bad
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're 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 gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)

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 robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're too bad (too bad)
You're just robbing and stabbing and looting and shooting
Now you're 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 gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
You gonna run to the rock for rescue
There will be no rock (no rock)
