Lyrics

Juan Romero got born
had a lot of trouble keeping warm
dropped out of school in the 7th grade- little boy thought he got it made

And he tried, yeah he tried, everybody wants to survive

Juan Romero got a job working in a factory turning knobs
He worked 15 years, never got a raise- never got nothin'

And he tried, yeah he tried, everybody wants to survive

Juan Romero too much poor
got himself a .44 and started dreaming
killed 24 people in one night now he's dreaming away his life- dreamin' and dreamin'
And he tried, yeah he tried, everybody wants to survive
Everybody wants to survive
