Lyrics:
Verse:
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 dont matter. 
johnny says he wants to go do it says he wants to kill a cop.

Chorus:
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

Verse 2:
so johhny, just keep pushin, cuz the, the streets are yours. 
there'll come a day when all that, shit wont matter, so, 
shoot it up, shoot it up, it just don't matter, 
when you're resisting any way.

Chorus:
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

Verse 3:
so johhny, just keep pushin, cuz the, the streets are yours.
there'll come a day when all that, shit wont matter, so,
shoot it up, shoot it up, it just don't matter,
when you're resisting any way.

Chorus:
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.
