Shooting Star

Shooting Star

Tesla

Johnny was a schoolboy
When he heard his first Beatles song
‘Love Me Do’ I think it was
And from there it didn't take him long

Got himself a guitar used to play it every night
Now he's in a rock ‘n’ roll outfit
And everything's all right, don't ya know?

Johnny told his mama, “Hey, Mama, I'm going away
I'm 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? Yeah, yeah

Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know, 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 went straight up to number one
Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing his song
Watching the world go by, surprising it goes so fast
Johnny looked around him
And said, "Well, I made the big time at last"

Don’t you know, don't you know?

Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Oh yeah
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 a shooting star

Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Oh yeah
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, you can still hear him play

Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know, 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?
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 know that you are a shooting star?
