"Too Tough To Die" as written by Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Johnny Ramone....
I am a tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tough tough guy
I tell no tales I do no lie

I am a tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tough tough guy
Halo round my head too tough to die

Main attraction in a freak side show
Down in the basement where the cobwebs grow
On my last leg just gettin' by
Halo round my read too tough to die

Rainy days rain cool wine
I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine
Hot sweat on my face
I feel like goin' out someplace

Up late at night my chocolate sweet
Down at the gym where the muscle boys meet
I am very nice guy very sincere
In real good shape I have no fear

At the concert when the band comes on
I am in the ring where I belong
On my last leg just gettin' by
Halo round my head too tough to die

    General CommentActually, the song is about how Johnny got into a fight with Seth Macklin of Sub Zero Construction and was kicked in the head, leaving him with having to undergo brain surgery.

    General CommentThe song is about Joey who got into a fight and got beaten so badly that he almost died. Thus, he wrote the song.
