Lyric "The Ballad Of Johnny Butt"

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 don't matter
Johnny says he wants go do it
Says he wants to kill a cop

[Hook]
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

So Johnny just keep pushin' cause the streets are yours
There'll come a day when all that shit won't matter
So shoot it up shoot it up it just don't matter
When you're resisting anyway

[Hook]

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

So Johnny just keep on pushin' cause the streets are yours
There'll come a day when all of that shit won't matter
So shoot it up shoot it up it just don't matter resisting anyway

[Hook]

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

Sublime was an American ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band's line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell's dalmatian, was the mascot of the band. Michael 'Miguel' Happoldt and Marshall Goodman "Ras MG" contributed to and co-wrote several Sublime songs. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. In 1997, posthumous songs such as "What I Got", "Santeria", "Wrong Way", "Doin' Time", and "April 29, 1992 (Miami)" were released to U.S. radio
