Lyrics
Johnny Can't Be
Spark Hartman and Rusty Newcomer

Well I don't mean to be rude
But I think I got screwed
Got an attitude
You better watch it dude
Yeah I'm speakin' to you
My impatience just grew
Whatcha gonna do
It's long overdue

One man lives while the other man dies
Johnny can run but he can't hide
It's in the midst of nowhere that he might be
Johnny's superficial Johnny can't be

You're a pain in the ass
I used to think you had class
My opinion didn't last
I should have looked at your past
Yeah you took all my cash
And you left me with your trash
You know your life will end fast
In a horrible crash

(Chorus)

Run Johnny run Run Johnny run
Run Johnny run Run Johnny run

Well I don't mean to be rude
But now I know I got screwed
Got an attitude
You better watch it dude
Yeah I'm speakin' to you
My impatience just grew
Whatcha gonna do
It's long overdue

(Chorus)

He ain't got no knife
He ain't got no gun
Run Johnny run Run Johnny run
Run Johnny run Run Johnny run
