Joe was born in New York City, 
Son of Paul and Catherine
Always down and always out,
But his 'morrows always seemed jus' fine

There will be bigotry and

Always down and always out,
But my 'morrows always seemed just fine

There will be bigotry and 
There will be open minds
There will be days of peace 
You'll never have the time
As long as you keep a straight face
I will be there when you die.
