Johnny Twobags

This song is by The Vandals and appears on the album Live Fast Diarrhea (1995).

Johnny Twobags doesn't have the blues
And it makes him sad
Brings him down
But not down enough to have the blues

He's too white to have the blues
He thinks he should be black to have the blues
He's too green to sing the blues
And Orange County ain't a breeding ground for blues

Oh Johnny, do shut up
I know you think you got it rough
You say your life is hard
Well you didn't spend your days
Stealin' chickens from the rich folks yard

Don't play me for a fool
Your dad wasn't traded for a mule
Do you know what I mean
Even if your band gets dropped from Dr. Dream

You ain't black and you ain't blind
You're girlfriend's not the cheating kind
Well, you're cleaned up and you're off the booze
But maybe you weren't meant to sing the blues

Ken is stuck in a wheel chair
His spine is bent beyond repair
He's not singin' the blues
And you never even wore orthopedic shoes

So at school you might have failed
But there's men being raped in jail
They should be singing the blue
And I'm starting to think that you haven't paid your dues

You ain't black and you ain't blind
You're girlfriend's not the cheating kind
So you're cleaned up and you're off the booze
Maybe you weren't meant to sing the blues

It's okay, so don't be sad
That your not sad
'Cause your still rad
To me

Johnny Twobags doesn't have the blues
And it makes him sad
Brings him down
But not down enough to have the blues

He's too white to have the blues
He thinks he should be black to have the blues
He's too green to sing the blues
And Orange County ain't a breeding ground for blues

You ain't black and you ain't blind
You're girlfriend's not the cheating kind
Now you're cleaned up and you're off the booze
Maybe you weren't meant to sing the blues

It's okay, so don't be sad
That your sad
'Cause your still rad
To me

You don't have to pay no dues
Or be born to lose
A lot of people would kill to be in your shoes
Maybe you weren't meant to sing the blues
