Written by Louise Goffin & Bill Olvis.


Johnny's in love
And it's changing him
'Cause he don't know
Just where to begin
Johnny's in love
Johnny can't make her

She's too close for comfort
She's too far to touch
She's so complicated
Why does she mean so much to Johnny?
Johnny can't make her

What you gonna do, now
Johnny tonight?
What you gonna do now
Johnny tonight?

She's got the prettiest eyes
She's got the prettiest smile
Here she comes now walking
Down the aisle
But when he goes to her
She just walks by

And he's never had it so hard before
Roaming the streets all night
He's trying to forget her
But it's a losing fight

What you gonna do, now
Johnny tonight?
What you gonna do, now
Johnny tonight?

And somewhere by the boardwalk
It's getting kind of late
Johnny can't make her

What you gonna do, now
Johnny tonight?
What you gonna do now
Johnny tonight?

Johnny can't make her . . .
