Dat Boy Johnny – Will Lyrics

Verse 1
I’d been at the pub out in Hammersmith
Got drunk but not hammered kid
Like a bee that didn’t turn left I was buzzing right
Left after last call wanting food nothing light

Hit West Kebab
On the way home as I left the bar
I was at the table smashing my doner
When I noticed this dude walk over

He was looking kinda of bummish
Missing a few teeth had his eyes on his humus
Ain’t gon front it was awkward
How he was gon act I was not sure

Said wassup that broke the silence
The conversation that followed it was surprising
Not enough bars for this verse man
Leave you a preview found it’s hard when

Chorus
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time

Verse 2
Dude told me his name was Will
Might’ve already said he had a fucked up grill
What else about him aw yea he had hella tats
Said they was for his homies can’t forget where they at

Dude’s life was sad he’d been to Baghdad
Seen his boys killed and put in body bags
Served his country roughing it in the Gulf War
Not your average day on a beach in Gulf Shores

In 1998 or ‘99
Did a stint in Kosovo and it fucked him up in the mind
Doctors tried to get him talking about it it didn’t occur
That brining all them bad memories back would just make it worse

Why should footballers get a hero’s welcome
But when this vet came home no one helped him
It’s really awful so bad
Had to feel for him I said it’s fucked that

Chorus
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time

Verse 3
Will’s story made me realize
British vets like U.S. G.I.s
End up unemployed living on the streets
Looked down upon hassled by the police

Bruce Springsteen made a song with the same theme People assume he singing how amazing
It is to be born in the USA
Ironically Ronald Reagan referenced it for a campaign

Even though that was 1984
30 years ago same shit different war
Employers won’t higher veterans from Iraq
’cause they PTSD suffering and might crack

Before I left and wished him the best
He told me bout a tat he got of a cross on his chest
Said he found the lord and that saved his life
I said I’m glad for you homie then it really ain’t like

Chorus
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time

Chorus
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time
You’re alone, all the time

Big up all the vets
I won’t ever forget
Big up all the vets
We won’t ever forget
Big up all the vets
I won’t ever forget
Big up all the vets
We won’t ever forget
