Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny! How you can love! Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny! Heavens above! You make my sad heart jump with joy, And when you're near I just Can't sit still a minute. I'm so, Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny! Please tell me dear. What makes me love you so? You're not handsome, it's true, But when I look at you, I just, Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny! Oh! ****** as rec by Pat Kirkwood w Orch cond by George Scott Wood March 1st 1940 London All the girls are crazy 'bout a certain little lad; Although he's very very bad, He could be oh so good when he wanted to! Bad or good, he understood 'bout love and other things, For every girl in town followed him around Just to hold his hand and sing; Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, How you can love! Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Heavens above! You make my sad heart jump with joy, And when you're near I just can't Sit still a minute, I'm so Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Please tell me dear, What makes me love you so? You're not handsome, it's true, But when I look at you, I just oh Johnny, oh Johnny, oh! Johnny tried his best to hide from every girl he knew, But even this he couldn't do, For they would follow him almost everywhere! Then his friends got him to spend a week or two at home; It's worse than before, the girl next door hollered through the telephone! Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, How you can love! Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Heavens above! You make my sad heart jump with joy, And when you're near I just can't Sit still a minute, I'm so Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Please tell me dear, What makes me love you so? You're not handsome, it's true, But when I look at you, I just oh Johnny, oh Johnny, oh! Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, How you can love! Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Heavens above! You make my sad heart jump with joy, And when you're near I just can't Sit still a minute, I'm so Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, Please tell me dear, What makes me love you so? You're not handsome, it's true, But when I look at you, I just oh Johnny, oh Johnny, oh! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011)
