East Side Johnny
Are you slummin' around
You're looking for some action
On the west side of town
Come on Johnny, do you wanna dance?
Your Nassau tan and your skintight pants

He's got the look
I'll get that boy tonight
He, he's got the look
He's got the look
Me, by hook or crook
He, he's got the look
Me, he's got me shook
I'll get that boy tonight

Every girl around
Has got her eyes on you
Watchin' every breath you take
Every move you do
With your sun-streaked hair
Come on Johnny
And your Hollywood face

Let's get out of this place

Well, don't mind courage
Gonna' take my chance
Wanna new romance?
Hello Johnny!
(Repeat chorus
