Lyrics

John Doe - Joint Chiefs
(© 1994 McDonald, Voth)

Chorus:
John Doe
The world you know
Is so much trouble
When justice weighs
The balance show
The hurt will go
The hurt will go
John Doe

Chorus

John Doe was the one
The elders talked about
They made his name the scapegoat
They pointed him right out
And you could never tell
John Doe not to rebel
Cause his face a red right up
And start to yell
And he would yell real loud
But still could not get through
So he a curse the things
The elders said to do
Oh come John Doe
Let's a reason I upon these matters
Let's reason I with I
And make it better

You say your mama say don't do that
You say your papa say don't do that
So you do that
You go and do that
You know your mama never do that
And you know your papa dare don't do that
So you do that
You'll go and do that
So much you rebel
But no one hears your yell
Although they make your name the scapegoat
No need to rock your own boat
It's just a hard relation
When you feel like the alien
In an alien nation

Chorus

Blame game in school
Always framed the fool
My teacher you mustn't be like him
When John Doe was my friend
With hatred
And insubordination
No motivation
In this dreadful situation
Oh come John Doe
Let's a reason I upon this matter
Come let's reason I and I
And make it better

You say your mama say don't do that
And you say your papa say don't do that
But you do that
You go and do that
You know your mama never do that
And you know your papa dare don't do that
But you do that
You go and do that
So much you rebel
And I know that
It's not all your fault
But still I'm concerned
How will John Doe learn
It's just a hard situation
When you feel like the alien
In this alien alien nation

John Doe
You're living a hard realization
Such a hard realization
And a hard relation
You say you'll never do that
Cause you know your mama say don't do that
Then you say you'll never do that
Cause you know your papa say don't do that
You think that's your way to get back
Oh John Doe
When you feel that attack
Like to fight back
John Doe
