Oh, I'm gonna tell you
A story 'bout a little boy
Oh, a sad little boy
I'm talkin' 'bout Little Johnny Hooker

Little Johnny Hooker was a sissy on the street
All his life, all his natural born life
Until his daddy took him aside and said
"Son, now here's your switchblade knife, boy"

He said, "Get out in the street, boy
Cut yourself some meat, boy
Get out on your own side of the road
And lighten my load"

Johnny made a mistake
And took his knife down to school one day
Hey, yeah, yeah, and when the bell rang for lunch
Freddie Miller went and got in Johnny's way, boy

He took his knife from his pocket
Pushed a button on the side
When he seen the Queen steel
You ought to seen the light in Freddy's eyes

Little Johnny Hooker learned his lesson
From the knife, now you see
(Yes, he did)
Because for what he done to Fred
He spent some time in a penitentiary

It was a day in the courtroom
Exhibit letter A
When the jury seen the knife
They put little Johnny's ass away

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

He's thinkin' the rest of his life
For what he done with the knife
Talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny

Little Johnny Hooker, he ain't a bad looker
He ain't a bad man, he ain't, talkin' 'bout Johnny
