They Might Be Giants Can’t Keep Johnny Down Lyrics

Outnumbered a million to one

All of the dicks in this dick town

Can’t keep Johnny down

Men piled up in a towering mound

None of them once has found a way

To keep Johnny down

Spending days by myself

Remembering slights

I’m not a monument to justice

Plus which I don’t forget a face

And they can’t (down, down, down)

Can’t keep Johnny down (down, down, down)

They haven’t yet built the man (down, down, down)

That’ll keep old Johnny down (down, down, down)

Some dude

Hitting golf balls on the moon

Bathroom in his pants

And he thinks he’s better than me

I’m pointing a finger at my own face

They can’t know what’s in here

And they can’t keep Johnny down

Beneath my dignity

To flip off the guy

When he pulls up alongside

To say my gas cap is unscrewed

And they can’t (down, down, down)

Can’t keep Johnny down (down, down, down)

They haven’t yet built the man (down, down, down)

That’ll keep old Johnny down (down, down, down)

And they don’t (down, down, down)

Don’t know what I’ve seen (down, down, down)

They can’t know what’s in here (down, down, down)

And they can’t keep Johnny down (down, down, down)
