Wait wait for me wait wait for me
Johnny wait for me

When I first met her she was only three
And I remember how she followed me
She was always getting in my way

And I still yes I still can hear her say
Wait for me wait for me Johnny please wait for me
I love you more than I can hardly stand
Wait for me wait for me Johnny please wait for me
I'll grow up just as fast as I can
Wait for me wait for me wait for me wait for me

As we grew older she would always wait
She'd wait for me by the schoolyard gate
I would yell at her to go away


And now were grown up but she didn't wait
And I'm in love with her but it's too late
She just married someone else today


Johnny, wait for me!

    I find it interesting that song writing credit is given to Joan Jett when this song was made popular in 1960 by the Playmates .... and in 1960 Joan Jett was 2 years old .... duh !! I don't know too many two year old children that are writing top chart hits .. Please get it right ...
