lyrics

Johnny Was An Oilman

Station Inspector Lee of the Singapore Police Force (Division E)
Was hoping for a homicide for professional advancement so he
Was disappointed at the suicide at the side of the Tanglin rugby pitch
Cause they found no trace of a struggle just a pistol
But something didn’t fit

If the cause of death was suicide then
Ask yourself why?

Johnny was an oilman
Johnny always toed the line
Johnny made sure that he always kept his eyes shut
But he knew too much he knew too much this time

Inspector Lee was a diligent fellow
He interviewed friends of the deceased
Until political pressure from the very top insisted that his investigation cease
I told you Johnny but you wouldn’t listen
This city doesn’t welcome questions
Forget about the drive and the drilling plans
Get on a plane get out while you can

Johnny was an oilman
Johnny always toed the line
And Johnny was a corporate fool
Johnny made sure that he always kept his eyes shut
But still Johnny was a friend of mine
