No No Joe (Williams Hank)

Now look here Joe, quit acting smart Stop being that old brazen sort Don't you go sellin' this country short No, no Joe Just because you think you've found The system that we know ain't sound Don't you go throwin' your weight around No, no Joe 'Cause the Kaiser tried it and Hitler tried it Mussolini tried it too Now they're all sittin' around a fire and did you know something? They're saving a place for you Now Joe you ought to get it clear You can't push folks around with fear 'Cause we don't scare easy over here No, no Joe What makes you do the things you do? You gettin' folks mad at you Don't bite off more'n you can chew No, no Joe 'Cause you want a scrap that you can't win You don't know what you're getting in Don't go around leading with your chin No, no Joe Now you got tanks, some fair size tanks But you're acting like a clown 'Cause man we've got Yanks, a mess of Yanks And you might get caught with your tanks down Don't go throwin' out your chest You'll pop the buttons off your vest You're playing with a hornets' nest No, no Joe You know, you think you're somebody we should dread Just because you're seein' red You better get that foolishness out of your head No, no Joe And you might be itchin' for a fight Quit braggin' about how your bear can bite 'Cause you're sitting on a keg of dynamite No, no Joe
