THE PRETENDERS
"Junkie Walk"

When you walk, when you walk
When you walk the junkie walk
Like you talk, like you talk
Like you talk the junkie talk

Here's the list, you can lie
Look your mother in the eye
Steal her pills, make her cry
Every junkie has to die

When you walk, when you walk
When you walk the junkie walk
Like you talk, like you talk
Like you talk the junkie talk

Here's the list, you can lie
Look your mother in the eye
Steal her car, her guitar
Every junkie has to die

Thank you for the dedication
Cross the street in the dirty rain
Though you said your true vocation
We'll be coming back again

When you walk, when you walk
When you walk the junkie walk
Like you talk, like you talk
Like you talk the junkie talk

Here's the list, you can lie
Look your mother in the eye
Steal her purse, and what's worse
Every junkie has to die

See them on the avenue
Nothing more to tell or do
Praying like the living dead
Or dancing in and under his bed

When you walk, when you walk
When you walk the junkie walk
Like you talk, like you talk
Like you talk the junkie talk

Here's the list, you can lie
Look your mother in the eye
Steal her keys, if you please
Every junkie has to die

Walk
Talk
Lie
Die

When you walk, when you walk
When you walk the junkie walk
Like you talk, like you talk
Like you talk the junkie talk

Here's the list, place your bet
No, a loser won't regret
Don't you fret, or deny
Every junkie has to die
