Johnny Run Away
Tones And I Lyrics


Johnny was a young boy, he liked playing at the park
And Johnny said "Oh oh oh, dad can you take me now?"
Johnny was young, never hurt no-one, too early for that
He was at the park, he met a boy named Jimmy
He's a cutie
And he chose him oh

Take my heart, take my soul, share my crayons, share my goals
His daddy walked by with a sigh said Johnny sit by my side
I'm gonna give you the best advice you've ever heard in your life
See that boy named Jimmy, yeah, he's a cutie
But oh no Johnny no no no no ah ah ow

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover yeah

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover

Johnny started high school at the front of the bus
Some boys yelled oh oh-oh man come sit with us
Johnny found a seat with a boy named Pete and felt it again
As he was trying to play pretend the feeling came rushing in
And he thought

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover

And I don't want to talk about the trap, I've dreamed big
Real big since I've been on daddy's lap
Got my dreams by my side
Keep them in my pocket so that when I get the chance I can rip it out and rock it
It's like my golden ticket, it's the reason that I'm here
Everybody has a dream, but they're frozen by fear
We won't dance in the rain, we go and run for cover
All that is to blame is getting picked on by another
So we go and find someone that will love and support us
Says they adore us, maybe fought for us
Then, we forget about ambitions and decisions have changed
I think that I was only seven when oh

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You'll get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover, nah no nah no

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
You'll get picked on by another
Better go and run for cover

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Getting picked on by another
Better go and run for cover, nah no nah no

Johnny run away, run away, now, Johnny now
Getting picked on by another
Better go and run for cover, nah no nah no

I love how she says "he's a cutie". It says a lot about her, her empathy and her heart. Also, "Johnny was young, never hurt no one, too early for that". Amazing words. Very sad that it sounds like the Jimmy that Johnny is running away from here is the same Jimmy from her Jimmy song.

I can’t keep up with the words

I remember my parents telling me this horrifying song they grew up with, they feel like it's a good song but it's short and weird
This is the whole song:
Johnny was a young boy
His mother was dead
His father was a drunkard
He couldn't buy bread

She is not only a good singer, she is great writer, talented musician and amazing story teller. She is a whole package.

@357 223 Have you heard her new song "Cloudy Day"? Prove it there

Her singing is atrocious. I had to come here personally to hear it for myself, and everyone that's said she's not a good singer is right. She's not.

It's so sad to think that some people feel like being gay is wrong and it breaks my heart😢
She did a wise thing writing this song just to show how people are feeling.
