(He's a trouble maker, he's a trouble man)
Alligator wrecked the bar last night
(He's a trouble maker, he's a trouble man)
I guess he had fun, to some people fun is a drag
Gathers lady had to hitch a ride
(She's a trouble lady, to a trouble man)
She got picked up by some guys in some band
You'd never believe what they did to a fan
They found a 'C' on her back, and a lead guitar strap in her hand
"Arrive down on N.T.C. in a blue Ford van, wanted for the connection of the
murder of a man"
Go Johnny, do what you want to do
"Hey, hey, blue. I here this Johnny's band is red hot"
"Alright let's check him out"
Go Johnny, do what you want to do
So go, Johnny
"Don't you know I'm a man" (go, go, Johnny)
*1-85 thru' the south land (Johnny)
"And my fingers are cold, but my managers tan, so watch out"
(go, go Johnny)
"On the road in a dangerous van" ( go, go, Johnny)
Watch 'em burn thru the South land
With my axe in my hand, Watch out , for
*Johnny Gore And The 'C' Eaters Band
"Holy Jesus, look at 'Gator up there, he's got Johnny Gore on
stage by his hair"
"Come on guys, give the Gators a hand. I paid two dollars
just to see this ba, ba, band"
"And I ain't gonna let no loser, put the screw on the show"
"So give us a hand 'Gators crazy you know"!
Go Johnny, do what you want to do
"Hey man, someone throw this dude out of here"
"Don't give a damn about his old lady"
Go Johnny, do what you want to do
So go Johnny
"Hey baby, don't you know I'm a man"!
So go Johnny
