Johnny could only sing one note,
And the note he sang was this,
"Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

Poor Johnny One Note
Sang out with gusto,
And just overlorded the place!
Poor Johnny One Note
Yelled willy-nilly,
Until he was blue in the face,
For holding one note was his ace!

Couldn't hear the brass,
Couldn't hear the drums;
He was in a class
By himself, by gum!

Poor Johnny One Note
Got on Aida,
Indeed a
Great chance to be brave!
He took his one note,
How like the north wind,
Brought forth wind
That made crics rave,
While Verdi turned round in his grave!

Couldn't hear the flute,
Or the big trombone,
Every one was mute,
Johnny stood alone!

Cats and dogs stopped yappin',
Lions in the zoo
All were jealous of Johnny's big trill.
Thunder claps stopped clappin',
Traffic ceased its roar,
And they tell us Niagara stood still!

He stopped the train whistles,
Boat whistles,
Steam whistles,
Cop whistles;
All whistles bowed to his skill!

Sing, Johnny One Note,
Sing out with gusto
And just overload all the clouds,
So sing, Johnny One Note, out loud!
Sing, Johnny One Note,
Sing, Johnny One Note, out loud!
