Johnny would if he could
And he should but he can’t
In the morning when he wakes up
With his prom date in his pants
And he lies there
Like a slugabed all day
When he should go practice chords
And learn to play

Johnny would if he could
But he can’t so he won’t
By the early afternoon
He’s like a dog without a bone
When he tries to rise
Blood rushes to his head
Does he realize
He’s better off in bed?

Johnny takes a morning break
And then he wakes up
And there’s nothing to do again
There’s nothing to do again

Johnny would if he could
And he tries but it’s hard
So he reads his magazines
And leaves his soldiers in the yard
Well he’s tried to love
But says it doesn’t pay
So at night he hangs around
With freaks and gaze

Johnny takes a morning break
And then he wakes up
And there’s nothing to do again
There’s nothing to do again

Johnny would if he could
But he’s so misunderstood

That he takes a morning break
And then he wakes up
And there’s nothing to do again
There’s nothing to do again
There’s nothing to do again
There’s nothing to do again
