    Ladies and gentlemen... he headed out west,
    Looking for the best... and he's here tonight,
    He says he's got a lot to get off his chest... here he is...
    Ladies and gentlemen... none other than... Daniel D. Johnston!

    Thank you, thank you very much for that lovely introduction. Thank you very much.
    A one, a two, a one, a two
    Listen folks, I gotta tell you now
    I been singing the blues, and walking the cow

    I tell you my soul's like running water
    Hot or cold now one or the other
    I guess I lean toward the excessive
    But that's just the way it is when you're a manic-depressive

    An angel appeared to me
    Told me if you want love, you gotta give
    Let me tell you now, it's been a long hard summer
    And I feel every bit, every bit more dumber

    Don't know where it is I'm gonna go
    Heard someone say keep punching Joe
    Keep punching Joe
    Keep punching Joe

    Keep punching- dial "P" for pest control, ahh...
    Now let me tell you about my family
    You know they've been right there beside me
    Through all this time that I've been low

    They've been punching joe
    Keep punching Joe (kick him right in the face!)
    Keep punching Joe (kick him when he's down!)
    Keep punching Joe (kick him, kick him when he's low!)

    I got some things to get off my chest
    Well, I got some things to get off my chest
    Yes, I've got some things to get off my chest
    How am I supposed to give love

    If I ain't never got love
    And what the heck am I punching for?
    And how am I to look right in the face
    When I feel so much disgrace?

    Now that's better off my chest
    Then out of my mind
    Keep punching Joe!
    Woah! Whoo!
