Billy was and orphan, Getting drunk and shooting guns was all he ever had Tommy was a whore Poe got drunk in Baltimore Could it be that's what made our boy so bad They shot a man just for snoring to load Billy the kid, Jesse James.. Capering with corpses in the dank moonlight Bad bad men and they're coming to town (Bad men) The jail is wide open and the towns in flames They started robbing banks, then cattle mutilation Now his offsprings terrorize the nation Billy got drunk, Sneaking in the back door, hiding in the night Bull got even Bull went belly-up and joined up with the G-men Piece of meat in the street, torn apart in the town By the inflatable hands of a sinister clown Bad bad men and they're coming to town (Bad men) Bring on the anti-hero, my zero-hero Shot a man just for snoring too damn loud Robert DeNiro, when he's a hero Hearts full of anger, hearts full of fear Billy looked up from the bed and said, "I'm walking outta here" It's a new religion, carnival of crime And then I just said, Doomed to repetition, with it we mark time I feel jacked up, drinking my 4-O "Yo" It's a new religion, carnival of sleaze Blew your face to the bumper Drag you up that dusty road and leave you creaking in the breeze
