    Lyrics

    Joey left when he was 16
    Black leather and blue jeans
    Too young to take a stand
    Gang life was like quicksand

    Pack o' smokes and a bottle O'Jack was
    A good friend, that didn't talk back much
    Young dude on a roll,
    Fast time take a toll

    Brother was a big shot lawyer
    Said the street life's gonna destroys ya
    Sister was an uptown model
    Said your whole life's in that bottle

    Black sheep, Black sheep
    Bad boy of the family
    Two strikes against him from the start
    Black sheep, Black sleep
    Livin' life out of the street
    Paid the price that left a scar

    Good times and a couple of laughs were
    Just what, Joe was after
    Love came ina girl named Jane
    She tried to keep him tame
    It's hard to walk the line
    Born under a bad sign
    The city was an ice cold place
    Pain was written in Joey's face

    Lord knows that he was a hard one
    Switchblade and a .38 handgun
    Joey got two years in the State Penn
    He's coming back
    But he just don't know when

    Black sheep, Black sheep
    Bad boy of the family
    Two strikes against him from the start
    Black sheep, Black sleep
    Livin' life out of the street
    Paid the price that left a scar

    Doin' time got Joey thinkin'
    Started prayin' and he gave up drinkin'
    Parole's comin' in six months maybe
    Not knowin' Jane's having his baby

    Black sheep, Black sheep
    Bad boy of the family
    Two strikes against him from the start
    Black sheep, Black sleep
    Livin' life out of the street
    Paid the price that left a scar

    Left jail straight as an arrow
    Gonna stay on the straight and narrow
    He loves Jane, and he loves little Joey
    Lord knows
