Well I'm a poor boy born in a rubble
And some say my manners ain't the best
And some of my friends
They've been in real trouble
And some say I'm no better than the rest

But tell your mamma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white

Well everyday baby, I work hard
And it's true at night I spend a restless night
But them rich kids and
All that lazy money
Can't hold a candle to mine

So tell your mamma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white

Well good guys bad guys
Which is which?
The white-collar worker
Or the digger in the ditch
And who's to say
Who's the better man
When I always done the best I can, yeah

Now there's a man with a dirty mind
And all these screwed-up kids and all these changin' times
White pills
And easy living
Can't replace the love I'm giving

So tell your mamma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white

That's right
Sometimes good guys don't wear white!
Sometimes good guys wear Ramones tee-shirts
That's right
They can wear black leather
They can wear grey and white stripes
My God
They can wear orange and red
With the buttons down the front
Anything
Yeah
Yeah

So tell your mamma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white
