The Procession – Johnny Got A Raw Deal lyrics

He laughs and he Jokes,
And he drinks and he chokes,
On the ice in the drink
In his hand.

Starting 4-5-4
Pretty soon he'll have some more,
Like to start again if he can.
Good to pick up early,
But his face is looking surly,
He knows that he'll get it all wrong.

Johnny got a raw deal,
Raw Deal.
Johnny got a raw deal,
Raw Deal.

He eats all the crisps
From the tube he bought,
From the money
From his one night stand.

29 card pick up,
He's gonna throw some sick up,
If his luck don't change too soon.
The games all finished,
Johnny's spirits are diminished,
The shitheads gotta do it all again.

Johnny got a raw deal,
Raw Deal,
Johnny got a raw deal,
Raw Deal.
