Lyrics

Johnny Clash (ver. 7)

Crushed in the coconut
Smile on his face
Down at the Ale House
Beatin' drums and strummin' bass
Quick with a bear hug
No shirt upon his chest
Now I hear the last explosion
Sounding from the Pacific Ocean

Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight
Now the cops search the wreck for some alcohol
And they cordoned off the site
Tortured by demons he could not escape
Just don't react if you'd like to stay safe
Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight

I met him at Walgreens, wearing yoga pants
I asked if he was ADD, he said he had Tourette's
His type couldn't have existed in the 20th century
He figured out how to save the world, yes
Make all your mistakes on purpose

Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight
Now the cops search the wreck for some alcohol
And they cordoned off the site
Tortured by demons he could not escape
Just don't react if you'd like to stay safe
Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight

It meant so much to him we were on his side
But Johnny Clash got kicked around the block a couple times
If you think people give a damn, you were wrong
Johnny, so long

Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight
Now the cops search the wreck for some alcohol
And they cordoned off the site
Tortured by demons he could not escape
Just don't react if you'd like to stay safe
Johnny Clash drove his black C250
When he went out looking for a fight
