Huey Lewis & The News – Hey, Jonny lyrics

Had Race Bannnon's car for just five minutes
I had to back in and get my phone
When I came back again, he saw his car
Well, I thought it had crashed on it's own
What a bummer, I was so bought down
Race chased me all over Rockport town yellin'

Hey, Jonny
Hey, Jonny
Hey, Jonny
What's wrong with you?

Took my girl Jess to the Dayton disco
I jumpin' like a maniac
But Estella came and pulled me off the floor
Then she later took me 'round the back
She said " I really like your shirt from the 50's
Your jeans are groovy and your hair's okay
But you don't sneak upon my Jessie like that
Sorry, Jonny but could you go away?"


Now I'm at home
I'm watchin' "Dungeons And Dragons"
I guess time to trade Race's old car in
For my twenty buck from the Flagons
Guess I could take to my dad
Or I'm in trouble
Hadji could give me advice
No wait, that could burst my bubble
Race looked me in the eye and later then
He said "Jonny, you blew it again"


(Hey, Jonny
What's wrong with you?)

Listen, I'm accident prone
No really

(Hey, Jonny
What's wrong with you?)

Oh man
Race, can I make it up to ya?

(Hey, Jonny
What's wrong with you?)

Hey, hey
I didn't mean to crash your car
