I gotta get some money and get it right away
Because my baby she gave me the word today
She's tired of sittin' home each night, she says she has her fill
And if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will

I checked and found they're sellin' tickets at five bucks each
And all that kinda money ain't within my reach
But if I wanna be the guy who is her only thrill
I better take her to the dance next week or Johnny will

Oh, that Johnny, that no-good Johnny
He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a
Sends her candy, sends her flowers
And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today

I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said "no"
Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough
My future happiness depends on one ten-dollar bill
'cause if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will, Johnny will

Oh, that Johnny, that no-good Johnny
He's been tryin' to steal my lovin' baby away-a
Sends her candy, sends her flowers
And I never saw her smile the way she smiled at him today

I tried to borrow it from my friends but they said "no"
Still somehow some way I just gotta get that dough
My future happiness depends on one ten-dollar bill
'cause if I don't take her to the dance next week, Johnny will, Johnny will

Oh that Johnny
Johnny will

If his future happiness depends on one ten dollar bill, he would do better steer clear! That Johnny is in for a whole lot of trouble.
A good little song of it's day though.

For the UK audience at the time, the line: "Oh that Johnny that no good Johnny.", had amusing connotations! Or was it just me?
