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

[Chorus]
You're just robbin' and stabbin'
And lootin' and shooting'
You're too bad (repeat)

One of these day's
When you hear a voice say come,
Where you gonna run to?
One of these day's
When you hear a voice say come,
Where you gonna run to?

[Chorus]

You're gonna run to the rock
For rescue, there'll be no rock
You're gonna run to the rock
For rescue, there'll be no rock
