Slapstick – Johnny lyrics

Johnny wanted his life to go far He went to town and bought a guitar
He had a friend and he showed him a chord It was fun, but he started getting bored
He developed a need for fame and greed said a rock band is what I need
He bought a whammy bar and sold his soul Him and his friends played corporate rock-n-roll
They played loud, you could hear it Johnny smelled just like teen spirit
Not too long playin in clubs meeting lots of girls giving him lovin
Then finally his big break came His career lead to fortune and fame
It's Johnny and the Allstar Band
Talkin about playin on the radio with Johnny and the Allstarband
Talkin about playin on the radio and in stadiums
Not gonna be a Punk rock Band
No no no na na no Johnny Oh No
His career was a big success Rolling Stone cover in a state of undress
The ladies loved him, he made 'em cry Johnny was the American Messiah
Gold records hanging on his wall, " Johnny Rules " in the bathroom stall
Yeah he knew that the music was shit It kept on paying, so he kept playing it
His success clearly climbed mtv video in the meantime
Got the grunge look, lookin unclean started making the ripoff scene.
His success was gone in a year Wow! Johnny what a great career
It's Johnny and the Allstar Band
Talkin about playin on the radio with Johnny and the Allstar band
Talkin about playin on the radio and in stadiums
Not gonna be a Punk rock Band
No no no na na no Johnny Oh No
Johnny wanted his life to go far He went to town and bought a guitar
He had a friend and he showed him a chord It was fun, but he started getting bored
He developed this need for greed said a rock band is what I need
He bought a whammy bar and sold his soul Him and his friends played corporate rock-n-roll
Mtv on the line, got a video for a long time
Got the grunge look, lookin unclean started making the ripoff scene.
His success was gone year Wow Johnny what a great career
It's Johnny and the Allstar Band
Talkin about playin on the radio with Johnny and the Allstar band
Talkin about playin on the radio and in stadiums
Not gonna be a Punk rock Band
No no no na na no Johnny Oh No
