Johnny Butt was a man with a real strong will to survive
He just keep pushin' on even though he was barely alive
So shoot it up shoot it up it just don't matter
Johnny says he wants go do it
Says he wants to kill a cop
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
So Johnny just keep pushin' cause the streets are yours
There'll come a day when all that shit won't matter
So shoot it up shoot it up it just don't matter
When you're resisting anyway
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
So Johnny just keep on pushin' cause the streets are yours
There'll come a day when all of that shit won't matter
So shoot it up shoot it up it just don't matter resisting anyway
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
We've got a brand new dance it's called we've got to overcome
