In a bar Johnny drinks<br>
Johnny drinks Johnnie Walker<br>
till he runs up a bill he can't pay<br>
He's drinking to the memory<br>
of a prince in a pauper's grave<br>

And it's go Johnny go<br>
where the bruises don't show<br>
in the churchyard where the nervous get wrecked<br>
And turn off your wireless<br>
for two minutes silence<br>
Cough up and pay your respects<br>

And go to the park<br>
where vicars and tarts<br>
prey for their tormented souls<br>
By the american graffiti<br>
from Elephant and Castle<br>
in Ford Capri Orange<br>
Volkswagon yellow and gold<br>

Johnny drinks Johnny drinks<br>
Johnny drinks Johnny Walker<br>
cockles his muscles alive alive 'o<br>
smashes his bottle of unholy water<br>
and it's go Johnny go, go, go<br>

Back to the churchyard<br>
where day out day in<br>
those original sinners<br>
are religiously praying<br>
And where there was muck<br>
there's a brass band that's playing<br>
playing to the memory<br>
of a prince in a pauper's grave<br>
