The Johnstown kids really play it like they feel it
They sing it like they say it and they say it like they mean it
The Johnstown kids really play it like it hurts they cant afford their health insurance
Its not a government service

Well Endless Mike sent me a note he said he liked what I was sayin
He thought my songs were really special and they really bring the pain
I didnt really know him so I took it with a grain
I didnt get what he was sayin til I went down there to play

The Johnstown kids really play it like they feel it
They sing it like they say it and they say it like they mean it

Well the bassist in the Club he had to quit to get a job
But its not like hes givin up its just hes got a bad case of
The kids in other bands they all pitched in to lend a hand
Too bad they couldnt meet end to end and pay for all his medicine

The Johnstown kids really play it like they feel it
They sing it like they say it and they say it like they mean it
The Johnstown kids really play it like it hurts they cant afford their health insurance
Its not a government service

Its not some kind of act
They really feel like that
They didnt sit around a boardroom table trying to come up with the right angle
Some of them are really feeling bad
Sure could use some medecine
Meanwhile city council went and blew their cash on an enormous flag when they could really use a bandage

The kids in this here little town they play what could be called punk rock
But it dont matter what you call it I just know it doesnt suck
It dont sound much like punk you might hear on the radio
It doesnt sound all that grown up because theyre having too much fun

The Johnstown kids really play it like they feel it
They sing it like they say it and they say it like they mean it
The Johnstown kids really play it like it hurts they cant afford their health insurance
Its not a government service

    General CommentWell, I'm also from Johnstown lol.

    I'm not too sure about this song but I think it might be about a kid called Ezra Ed who died of leukemia a while back. I think so cuz I know some of the local bands did stage a benefit show for him and not after that Rob Szabo was in town.

    But this song is good, and pretty true about town lol
