Johnny Come Last
The Fratellis Lyrics


Well, ask me that question, oh, ask me again
Well, you swore that you knew me, you didn't say when
Happiness, happiness comes in a jar
You're a brave little cunt, but you took it too far
And all of the tantrums and each of the lies
They took ages to think up, that's no big surprise
And last but not least, you're a talented boy
But you stole all the answers, you killed all the joy

Well, I loved you before, but I don't anymore
You're just burned out and vicious and dumb
And I don't like the way that you mean what you say
And I don't like what you've become

Well, tell you mean it, and I'll tell you you don't
Well, you say that you'll try, but I know that you won't
And there's one God-knows where, and there's one in Japan
Was a hundred degrees, you got shit-scared and ran
Well, Johnny go easy, Johnny go fast
Johnny come lately, and Johnny come last
Housewives are heroes, and everyone's bent
Well, if this was a joke, well it's some accident

Well, I loved you before but I don't anymore
You're just burned out and vicious and dumb
And I don't like the way that you mean what you say
And I don't like what you've become

Well, give me a month, and I'll write you a line
Or two, maybe three, though it might take some time
I'll write them for drunks, and I'll sing them for cash
Well, you know that old saying about gone in a flash?
They wrote that for me, and it fits me so well
It's been my fucking pleasure, and I bid you farewell
Green is the colour but don't it fade fast?
Remember me fondly, Johnny come last

Well, I loved you before, but I don't anymore
You're just burned out and vicious and dumb
And I don't like the way that you mean what you say
And I don't like what you've become
