Now that you've broke your heart
How long before the teardrops start?
And 'til those tears subside
You'd better find some place to hide
If you don't wanna feel
Just make believe that nothing's real
And if you don't wanna cry
Just wait until those tears run dry

Oooh oooh oooh
Johnny Teardrop
Oooh oooh oooh
Johnny Teardrop

When you don't wanna think
You pour yourself another drink
You make like you're getting high
When really you're just getting by
You say you don't wana know
You make as if it's time to go
You say you don't wanna cry
Well wait until those tears run dry

Oooh oooh oooh
Johnny Teardrop
Oooh oooh oooh
Johnny Teardrop

It's his tears that turn you on
Johnny Teardrop
It's his tears that turn you on
Johnny Teardrop
