John Bates is going down,
he wrote his last hot check in a bankrupt town
His face won't bounce when it hits the ground
John Bates is going down.

Anyone can see he's a cassa nova
Pressed shirt and a glass-piped Chevy Nova
China-red lipstick stain on the back of his neck
He slips the cassette to the deck.

John Bates is going down,
he wrote his last hot check in a bankrupt town
His face won't bounce when it hits the ground
John Bates is going down.

Studyin that see-through lingerie
She'll take it off cause he came to play
Hot rubber check bounce take a bath,
She gives me a call
I let the machine say it all.
