Lyrics

Still drinking on the corner

Just don't say I didn't warn you Always nagging big brother He's only looking out for you Tony the pony Tony the pony

You're still standing on the corner Just don't say I didn't warn you Old and jealous big brother You had your time and you spent it crying Now, Tony the pony Tony the pony

So that's what they call you now When you're free outside So cold and hard and in control And... There's a free ride on Tony the pony

Why do you always wanna stop me From doing the things in life that make me happy And when I'm outside with friends laughing loudly Why do you always wanna stop me Oh I would never I would never

But you will carry the can for anyone And there's a free ride on gullible Tony You're drunker, quicker And you're sicker even quicker For something heavy is gonna fall on you

And what do they call you now When you're free outside So cold and hard and in control And oh... been a lark There's a free ride on Fucked up Tony

I'll never say "I told you so" Or how I knew that something bad would happen to you I don't wanna say "I told you so" Oh but Tony, I told you so I told you so
