Up the banks they run with both hands on the tops of their heads
And all they see is red
And it’s coming up toward the northern side moving like a serpent
To the open side

And the only thing I wish for:
I’ll get him back, I swear to God I will
With a rifle in my hand and a ‘dana ‘round my neck
I will avenge this bloody strip and move into to my ship

Little Johnny moves along, running down the road with both his arms
bleeding from the hilts and took his little stilts and covered them with grandma’s only quilt
it was in the backyard of the woods, told the story of the fin he saw in the river
and said “you must be crazy, Matawan is inland!”

but with my rifle I will vanquish every bite that he took
trading white teeth for steel
and I’ll put on in his head and turn the water red
with grandma at the wheel
