I was young, I was just sixteen then When you came up from Burma one day And you told me to pack up my suitcase And I did, and you took me away I said, "Do you work nice and steady Or do you go sailing and roving out to sea?" And you said, "I have a job on the railroad And baby, how swell it's all gonna be" You said a lot, Johnny. It was all lies You sure had me fooled, right from the start I hate you when you laugh at me like that Take that pipe out of your mouth, Johnny Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end? Surabaya Johnny. Will the hurt ever mend? Surabaya Johnny. Ooh, I burn at your touch You got no heart, Johnny, but oh, I love you so much Oh, at first you were kind and gentle 'Til I packed up and went off with you And it lasted two weeks until one day You laughed at me and hit me too You dragged me all over the city Up the river and down to the sea Now I look at myself in the mirror And some old woman looks back at me You didn't want love, Johnny, you wanted money I gave you all I had. You wanted more Oh, don't look at me that way I'm only trying to talk to you Wipe that grin off your face, Johnny Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end? Surabaya Johnny. Will the pain never mend? Surabaya Johnny. How I burn at your touch You got no heart, Johnny, but oh, I love you so much When we met I forgot to ask you Why they called you that funny name But in every hotel on the seacoast I found out, and I loved you all the same I'm tired. I'm worn out The sea's pounding in my ears And I reach out my arms to hold you You're not here and who even cares? You got no heart, Johnny. You're just no good You going now? Oh, tell me why I love you after all, Johnny, like that very first day Don't laugh at me no more, Johnny. Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end? Surabaya Johnny. Will the hurt ever mend? Surabaya Johnny. Oh, I burn at your touch You got no heart, Johnny, but oh, I love you I love you, I love you so much
