Oh, Johnny was a rockstar
And Suzy was a freak
The got high on Robotussin
Before they hit the streets
Of San Francisco, Louisiana...
It doesn't matter where it was
They just tried to rock the people
They just tried to catch a buzz
It's alright to scratch the surface
As long as you're cool
Ain't no need for misbehavior
Ain't no need to play the fool
That's how Johnny got famous
And Suzy freaked out
On the streets of Portland, Oregon
Once the bottom fell out

But it ain't no business of yours
They've got the heat coming out of their pores
Ain't no need to look back
When you ain't left nothing behind
They're riding high on eights and fours
They've got the heat coming out of their pores
No need to turn back the clock
When you know this shit is right on time

Now Johnny is a drunkard
And Suzy is a nurse
She likes to stash an Oxycontin
In the bottom of her purse
It doesn't matter where they've been
It doesn't matter where they went
At the end of the day
She just needs to feel spent
Not like two quarters and a dollar
That you spend on a Coke
But like the way that Johnny feels
Right after he starts to choke
On a shot of Evan Williams
That goes down the wrong way
So that he has to drink another
And another
And another
