Joey O.

Updated: Jul 13

Joe Originattor

stood five foot nine

He quit his job

on the assembly line

Joined a winery

to study making wine

By all accounts

he was doing just fine


But Originattor

had troubles at home

Argued with his wife

whenever alone

Suspicious of her family

on the phone

Felt she talked

in a superior tone


So Joey O. would leave

the house most nights

Visit the local gym

to see the fights

Took an interest in

bright casino lights

Some shady dudes

would cross his sights


He’s gonna cheat who he wants to cheat

gonna beat who he wants to beat

gonna owe who he wants to owe

and gonna go when he wants to go


No Joey no

No need to owe

Wow Joey wow

It's time to let go


No Joey no

No need to owe

Wow Joey wow

It's time to let go


Not long after

Joe got himself in debt

The result of a foolish

all-in bet

So he stole from the vineyard

no regrets

The theft is undiscovered

as of yet


Apparently rumour has it

Joe killed a man

over another gambling

debt he ran

Word on the street was

he owed ten grand

Joe running out of turf

on which to stand


Now Joe’s bed at home

had gone very cold

so he’d buy attention

wherever sold

Consequence-free

he became extra bold

Inevitably

word to his wife was told


He’s gonna cheat who he wants to cheat

gonna beat who he wants to beat

gonna owe who he wants to owe

and gonna go when he wants to go


No Joey no

No need to owe

Wow Joey wow

It's time to let go


No Joey no

No need to owe

Wow Joey wow

It's time to let go


On top of this

Joe angered a main player

He was in too deep

he had no prayer

So he purchased a piece

as days got greyer

Seeing no way out

from his corrupt layer


Joe Originattor

crept home like a stray

Spoke softly to his kids

wrapped in play

Walked to the bedroom

in a sombre way

Was found dead in his bed

the very next day


He’s gonna cheat who he wants to cheat

gonna beat who he wants to beat

gonna owe who he wants to owe

and gonna go when he wants to go


No Joey O., No Joey O., No Joey O., No Joey O...
