Judy Garland – Johnny One Note (From 'Words And Music', 1948) lyrics

Johnny could only sing one note
And the note he sang was this
Ahh

Poor Johnny one note sang out with gusto
And just overlorded the place
Poor Johnny one note, yelled willy nilly
Until he was blue in the face
For holding one note was his ace

Couldn't hear the brass
Couldn't hear the drum
He was in a class, by himself, by gum

Poor Johnny one note got in Aida
Indeed a great chance to be brave
He took his one note, howled like the north wind
Brought forth wind that made critics rave
While Verdi turned 'round in his grave

Couldn't hear the flute
Or the big trombone
Every one was mute, Johnny stood alone

Cats and dogs stopped yapping
Lions in the zoo all were jealous of Johnny's big trill
Thunder claps stopped clapping
Traffic ceased its roar and they tell us Niagara stood still

He stopped the train whistles, boat whistles
Steam whistles, cop whistles
All whistles bowed to his skill
Ahh

Sing Johnny one note, sing out with gusto
And just overlord all the crowd
So sing Johnny one note, out loud
Sing Johnny one note
Sing Johnny one note out loud

    For me, this song is about the loud "know all". Johnie has only one view and is impervious to other perspectives. He has the answer. He wants to ram that answer down your throat and isn't interested in anything you might contribute. Next week he may hold the opposite view. But again that will be the answer. There are religious people like that, and political people. And some of my relatives too. Warmly Peter Rennie from Melbourne Australia.
