The Johnny Carcinogenic Show
Billy Bragg Lyrics


Saw some guy on the TV yesterday
He's selling poison by the ton
"How can you do such a thing?" a woman asked
And he replied, "Well, the secret is to hook 'em young
Look, I'm not responsible for the lessons children learn
I'm just responsible for giving my investors some return"

Here's a message from
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'

Well, you'd never believe how much effort goes into
Adding some glamor to the brands
To distract you from the damage that they do
Putting their product in your hand
What other industry could ever get away
With contaminating their best customers this way?

Here's a message from
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'

Here's a product that promises to do nothing
But take your money and your soul
Poverty is toxic, everybody knows
No need to help it take its toll
Who will profit from the misery they sow?
Not the grandchildren that you will never know

Here's a message from
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
Poverty is toxic
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
Poverty is toxic

The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
Poverty is toxic
The sponsors of, 'The Johnny Carcinogenic Show'
Poverty is toxic

By using recycled chords from 'The Marriage', BB wrote another brilliant song.
