Hey Hey Johnny


Johnny was a lover
Of the classical kind
With delicate words
And hair blowing wild
When he met Mary
He turned it all on
She looked away
You got me all wrong

  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home
  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home

Well everyone knows
Johnny won't quit
Followed her home
Called from the street
Here are some flowers
I want you to have
He played the fool
Then she laughed

  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home
  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home

Johnny got lost
Lost in her eyes
Heat of the moment
Had to improvise
Johnny told Mary
I want to feel this always
Straight from the heart
All she had to say

  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home (leave me alone)
  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home (leave me alone)

Now he lives down here
Burning his fuse
Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
One on one
Telling his tale
I listen a while
And then I say

  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home
  Hey hey Johnny
  Go home
