The Ballad Of Johnny Butt
Sublime Lyrics


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

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

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', 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

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

Johnny Butt was a man with a real strong
Will to survive
He'd just keep pushing on
Even though he was barely alive

So...
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
It just don't matter

Johnny says he wants to go do it
Says he wants to kill a cop

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 pushing
'Cause the streets are yours
There'll come a day
When all that shit wont matter

So...
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
It just don't matter
When you're resisted anyway

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
You kept on pushing
The streets are yours
And there'll come a day
When all that shit wont matter

So...
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
It just don't matter
Resisted anyway

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

Hi,I'm larry. Here's a short memoir for y'all badfishes.the year is... nineteen hundred ninety seven.My first bong toke i hit @ 13y.o was a graffix bong with some sublime sticker and a sublime base(sun logo base), like 2 feet tall....green.....glass bowl... begging me to hit it......anyhow ,Before i hit it,(I'm nervous af but acting like i been smoking 20 ys) My buddy plays this music! A vicious dog starts raising hell Boom......Boom.....Boom...Boom Boom Boom...on the easssst siiiiiide.......it was meant to be ❤. Nevertheless after this odd song about some dudes ruca, i hit the bong twice ,then whilst gathering around with my 6 new Cool weed friends watching a Ham n cheesec sammich cook in the microwave ,i blacked out when the timer dinged..woke up 2 everybody laughing at me,remembered my sammich,then decided heresy's chocolate syrup MUST GO ON this ham n cheese. 1 by 1 everybody blacked out like me,like fainting goats from 1000 seed brick Mexican squash weed... Now a few months later i meet"Grover"drives a baby shit green vw bus.sells acid and like to take advantage of us youngins. I hated this old dude. He cracked a fat joke on me and well fk that, so even tho I'm not a thief ,this day i decided to steal a cd out a case,blindly,never stole before ,so I'm giddy.I took a green xmas tree gel tab with the"crew"and decided to trip for my 2nd time on a Tuesday 5pm school night 7th grade..4 some reason i decide to sneak back home before i get caught on this acid 😆. after watching the walls breath in my room and laughing 😆 😆 at my hands in the mirror ,I stumbled upon this disc in my back jnco pocket. Its a white cd with a drinking clown?wtf?😆😁idk I'm smiling at the cover by now.after eons 😆i finally figure out how to get the Sony boombox to play it and i was greeted with this weird noise and some non sense about a trip to garden Grove.. unbeknownst to me in my state of mind,i had just found the staple of my childhood and adulthood and anything else i need to apply it to.Sublime.that stoner music i fell in love with when i coughed and choked on 1 of natures most go unrest gifts.. i then found the ultimate drug ever... 🎶🎶

2020 and still Bradley Nowell's voice and Sublime's resonance lives on. When he died, I was a 12 year old entering 9th grade at San Pedro High in California. Their music changed my life and I'm so grateful I was hipped onto its magic all those years ago...
