Johnny Too Bad
Bunny Wailer
Album: Protest

Johnny was grown in a twisted broken down
one room shack in a the ghetto.
The going was rough and the ditch of survival
was getting steep in a the ghetto.

It was just robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and it too bad.
A robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and it too bad.
It was just robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and its too bad.
You're robbing, stabbing
and looting and a shooting and its too bad.

Johnny grew tough
and his task of survival was to plunder
in a the ghetto.
Johnny never lost a fight
and he never, never stoop to conquer.
Johnny you too bad.

You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you're too bad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just robbing, stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too sad.

Now you're walking down the road
with a shotgun in your waist.
Johnny you too bad.
Johnny was so smart
that he never got caught in a cop chase.
Johnny you too bad.

You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you're too bad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just robbing, stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too sad.

Hey little wild one!
A beg you throw away your shotgun.
Johnny you too bad.
Whatcha gonna do
when you hear a little voice say:
Son, who you gonna run to?

You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too sad.
You just a robbing and stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.
You just a robbing, stabbing
and looting and a shooting and you too bad.

As smart as Johnny was strong
he was tricked, trapped, cornered and shot down
in a the ghetto.
Now all Johnny left behind
is a struggling woman and two sons
in a the ghetto.

Poor Johnny! He was too bad.
Poor Johnny! He was too sad.
Poor Johnny! Down here in the ghetto!
Poor Johnny! He was a little bit too bad.
Poor Johnny! He was too sad.
Poor Johnny! Down here in the ghetto!
Poor Johnny! He was too bad.

Some say big bad Johnny had the good inside!
Johnny was a good one.
Big bad Johnny had the good inside!
Though he was, though he was a wild one.
Big bad Johnny had the good inside!
He would give to the weak ???
Big bad Johnny had the good inside!
Though he was a wild one.
Big bad Johnny had the good inside!
Johnny was a good one.
Big bad Johnny had the good inside!
He was a strong one.

Poor Johnny! He was too bad.
Poor Johnny! He was too sad.
