Didn't want the dole money in his hand
So he formed a chaos band
He didn't depend on anyone
He wanted to have some fun

 Johnny took a chance that's what he said
 Nobody Listened and now he's dead

He didn't want no boring job
Or to become part of the mob
He didn't rely on anyone 
and so became a kid on the run
He was the one who led the crowd
The law said his voice was too loud
They're determined to make him pay
And later that night he passed away
