There she goes and knows I'm dying 
When she says, "Who is Johnny?" 
Games with names that girl is playing
All she says is, "Who is Johnny?" 

I try to understand because I'm people too
And playing games is part of human nature
My heart's in overdrive
It's great to be alive

"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And smiled in her special way
"Johnny," she said 
"You know I love you" 
"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And tried to look the other way 
Eyes gave her away, all right

She makes sure, I see her teasing
Hear her say, "Who is Johnny?" 
There's no way to take this easy 
Hear her say, "Who is Johnny?" 

I really couldn't help but fall in love with her
Her being there has made my life worth living
I knew it from the start 
That I would lose my heart

"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And smiled in her special way
"Johnny," she said 
"You know I love you" 
"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And tried to look the other way 
Still pretending

"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?" oh
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?" oh, no, no, no 
I don't believe it
"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And tried to look the other way
Eyes gave her away

(Girls like her) are very special
Girls (like her) don't rest
'Til you too are a believer 
'Til you too have caught their fever

"Who is Johnny?"

There she goes and knows I'm dying 
When she says, "Who is"
"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And smiled with some other guy
"Johnny," she said 
"I don't remember" 
"Who's Johnny?" she said 
And turned the other way 
Eyes gave her away

"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?" 
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?" she said, "I don't remember"
"Who's Johnny?" she said and turned the other way
Left me standing there

"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
Left me standing there

"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"

"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny? Who's Johnny?"
"Who is Johnny?"
