"Johnny's in the basement / Mixing up the medicine"
"Maggie comes fleet foot / Face full of black soot / Talkin' that the heat put / Plants in the bed but / The phone's tapped anyway / Maggie says that many say / They must bust in early May / Orders from the D.A."
"Don't try No Doz"
"Better stay away from those / That carry around a fire hose"
"You don't need a weatherman / To know which way the wind blows"
"Don't follow leaders / Watch the parking meters"
"Better jump down a manhole / Light yourself a candle / Don't wear sandals / Try to avoid the scandals / Don't wanna be a bum / You better chew gum / The pump don't work / 'Cause the vandals took the handles"
