Long John Silver, he was on me like a rash
Gave him my trust, gave him my cash
Should have seen through him, should have seen from the start
the death of me, Lord, Lord
Hammer's gonna be the death of me"

Now the captain he said to John Henry,
"I'm gonna bring that steam drill around
I'm gonna
forty-nine pounds from my hips on down
I like to hear that cold steel ring Lord Lord I like to hear that cold steel ring
[ guitar ]
John Henry had a little
Henry had a pretty little woman and her name was Polly Ann
John Henry he took sick and he had gone to bed
Polly drove the steel like a man Lord Lord but
Little John lived on a mountainside, 
Never thought much about taking on a bride, 
Finally he upped and he married one day, 
She didn't like
floor
And I'm standing over by the bandstand
Every eye gaping on John Finn's wife
Yeah, every eye gaping on John Finn's wife

Now John Finn's wife
´m the Scatman.

(Scatting by Scatman John.)
Everybody stutters one way or the other,
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact, don´t let nothin´ hold
Are all out on the town
And cowboy Jim's in bed
Nursing a swollen head

[Chorus]
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow

But we lost little John as the moon struck one

I was vacant, Julie was a bird with a broken wing
We were always afraid of what tomorrow might bring
or I'll die

Sun shine hot an' burnin'
Wer'n't no breeze a-tall
Sweat ran down like water down a hill
Dat day John Henry let his hammer fall
Lawd,
win the game
They came to win, they want to come out ahead

But you, you're a rock with a heart
Like a socket I can plug into at will
And will you
you.
I'm the Scatman.

(Scatting by Scatman John)
Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't
you.
I´m the Scatman.

(Scatting by Scatman John)
Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don´t
work and I somehow hide from a world that rushes by outside 
And each night when I rest my head I'm contented as the peaceful death 
But who's gonna
The people cry and pray
They bury their dead
Then they all go away

And here I work
And I somehow hide
From a world that rushes
By outside

But each
Are all out on the town

And cowboy Jim's in bed
Nursing a swollen head

[Chorus]
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow

Spider: We can get our strength up by making some music
John: That's right
Monica: Yeah . . . yeah
John: But the thing is, you know what?
Spider:
handled steel like a man.

They took John Henry to the graveyard
Laid him down in the sand
Every locomotive comin' a-rolling by by by
Hollered "there
to call me a groom
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
no soap in the john
But I'm rattled by the rush
Rattled by the rush
The soundtrack to my life is like CNN first shit
Images like CNN but worse shit
I would down the whole Pinot Gris
But I'd see the group home
The soundtrack to my life is like CNN first shit
Images like CNN but worse shit
I would down the whole Pinot Gris
But I'd see the group home
I'm singing my say
He said I love you but I do not like your lowdown ways.

Well, John Henry went to a conjuring woman
Said this misery ain't no way
I'm living in the material world
Living in the material world

can't say what I'm doing here
But I hope to see much clearer,
After living in
all out on the town 

And Cowboy Jane's in bed 
Nursing a swollen head 
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov 
Don't like the scene anyhow 

I dropped
Lord, Lord
Whup that steel on down

Well John Henry said to the captain,
Oh a man ain't nothin' but a man
'Fore I'd let your steam drill beat me
