Johnny cool was the king
The leader of the boot boys
He'd never cause no trouble
In a rumble make some noise

He heard about some chick
And they she like to rock
He said "come here honey"
"let me see you lift up your frock"

There's gonna be a showdown

Miss Lucy was a chick
He knew she like to ball
He said "come on Lucy"
"it doesn't matter to me at all"

But miss lucy got a fella
With a flick knife in his hand
Johnny cool pulls a shotgun
The man is in command

There's gonna be a showdown

King cool
King Kong
King king
With all the kings

King of hearts he's a lover
King of spades he's a brother
King of clubs makes a dollar
King of diamonds the wedding ring

There's gonna be a showdown
