Johnny Will
Pat Boone Lyrics


I gotta get some money and get it right away
Because my baby she gave me the word today
She's tired of sittin' home each night, she says she has her fill
And if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will

I checked and found they're sellin' tickets at five bucks each
And all that kinda money ain't within my reach
But if I want to be the guy who is her only thrill
I better take her to the dance next week or Johnny will
Oh, that Johnny, that no-good Johnny
He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a
Sends her candy, sends her flowers
And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today

I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said "No"
Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough
My future happiness depends on one ten dollar bill
'Cause if I don't take her to the dance next week
Johnny will, Johnny will

Oh, that Johnny, that no good Johnny
He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a
Sends her candy, sends her flowers
And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today

I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said "no"
Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough
My future happiness depends on one ten-dollar bill
'Cause if I don't take her to the dance next week
Johnny will, Johnny will

Oh that Johnny
Johnny will

Wow...! I remember clearly when I bought this record in 1962 when I was 17, and my pals and me would play it over and over, singing along with Pat ! We used to laugh when we referred to "that no good Johnny" ! My God, it's been a lifetime since then...

Came to me during a radio show that I was guesting on ----following Mark Wynter's "Venus in Blue Jeans". Will definitely play this next week; one of the great songs of the early sixties.

I remember this song. It was a Top 3 Hit here in Germany in 1962.

Love this song reminds me of playing my mums 45s when I was a kid.

Cant beat Pat's voice

emerita cervantes

pay attention to the lyrics--it's about young love. the fear of your loved one being stolen from you because the other guy is "rich." pat boone's nice voice and his excellent diction do justice to this song.
