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
