Song For Joey

by The Coffinstuffers



In Memory of Joey Chang



sometimes you were funny, sometimes you were mean
you never had no money, didn’t talk so much as scream
you never took care of yourself, got so overweight
blood pressure through the roof, always stayed up much too late

your death took me by surprise
i never saw it coming
so much anger in your eyes
but your dopey music kept me buzzing

his heroes were rizzo, rocky, reagan and rambo
there was nothing political that he didn’t know
he proclaimed himself the mayor of cottage street
if you were a marxist baby, watch out you might get beat

now you’re just a memory
my crazy friend is gone
and you had a shitload of hated enemies
somehow these people, they all did you wrong

but Joey you’ll be remembered
for how you made us laugh
you’re in our hearts forever
from the moment that you passed
i’ll see you on the other side, my friend
