Uncle Jonny Lyrics

Play "Uncle Jonny"
on Amazon Music


When everybody else refrained
My uncle Johnny did cocaine
He's convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain
Hey, Johnny
Hey what you say Johnny

I wanna go out tonight
Come a little closer to the city...

    This song is about Brandon's uncle, Jonny. It's about how Jonny survived a cocaine habit, a paranoid obsession with George Orwell's 1984, and the conviction that aliens were coming to steal his semen. So Uncle Jonny decided to shoot his testicles off in the bath. Happily, he missed, and shot himself in the groin instead.
