An ode to someone I met only once and has now left us...

lyrics

Johnny doesn't care about the other boys and all the attention they get
Johnny lives life on his own terms and you'll never find him upset
Johnny
Johnny

Johnny knows he'll never be your favourite he won't be the one you love
Johnny doesn't care about you or your life just stares into the clouds above
Johnny
Johnny

Johnny doesn't mind if you want to be near him well that's just your choice
Johnny pulls away if you get too close doesn't want to hear your voice
Johnny
Johnny

Johnny
Wanna be like Johnny
Not give a care like Johnny
I wanna be like Johnny

Johnny can remember the early days chasing the kria
Johnny had vivid dreams about the future and he never showed any fear
Johnny
Johnny

Johnny is fixated on the oriental and the ways of the Samurai
But Johnny is a peaceful warrior Tai Chi gets him by
Johnny
Johnny

Johnny has a plan to move to Japan and settle down in Osaka
But Johnny is deluded it'll never work 'cause Johnny is an alpaca

Johnny
Wanna be like Johnny
Not give a care like Johnny
I wanna be like Johnny
(repeat)
