I walk the streets of every town
as a junkie and as a whore.
A car pulls up beside me
and my habit calls for more.
I suck his dick and I get paid
and out the door I go.
Another ‘John’ pulls up.
It’s nasty, yes, I know.
This has been my job
for too many years to count.
I am sick and just about dead.
And yet, another dick, I mount.
Don’t waste your time by telling me
that I’m damned and going to hell.
I’ve been there and I’ve done that.
Just look at me, can’t you tell?
Save your prayers and save your breath
for the sinners in the church.
Preach to them about sin and such
from your lofty perch.
You bind yourself in marriage
to a ‘John’ that says, “You’re mine!”
And when he wants some sex,
legal whore, you toe the line!
Never think for one minute
that he’s faithful and he’s true.
He’s just a ‘John’ like all the rest
and he always needs to screw!
He pampers you and he buys you things
and you think that that means love.
How stupid can you be?
It’s not you, he’s thinking of!
