Shooting Star (Album Version)

Shooting Star (Album Version)

Golden Smog

Johnny was a schoolboy when he heard his first Beatles song
"Love me do" I think it was and from there it wouldn't take long
Got himself a guitar, he used to play it every night
Now he's in a rock and roll outfit everything is alright

Don't you know
Johnny told his momma "hey momma, I'm going away
Gonna hit the big time, gonna be a big star someday"
Momma came to the door with a teardrop in her eye

Johnny said "don't cry momma smile and wave goodbye"
Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are
Johnny made a record, it went straight up to number one

Suddenly everyone loved to hear him play his song
Watching the world go by surprising it goes so fast
Johnny looked around him and said "hey I made the big time at last"
Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long

As long as you are
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are

Johnny died one night, died in his bed
Bottle of whiskey, sleeping tablets by his head
Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day
If you listen to the wind sometimes you can still hear him play

Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know, don't you
Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you know
Don't you know you are a shooting, a shooting star

Don't you know you are a shooting star
