Johnny was a girl everybody knew
Didn't give a damn, just passing through
Had a kind of dream back when she was twelve
Knew that she belonged somewhere else

Wasn't into drugs, wasn't into much
Guess that she was blessed with a special touch
Kept it to herself, hid it all away
Bag already packed, ready for today, yeah

She's out of place
Counting days
And it won't be long now

Down by the station there's you
See what a ticket can do
Big dreams and nobody knows
Thursday's child, so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's child's got far to go

Now she's got a place, even got a few
Made a little home she can run back to
Working for a dime, working all the time
But she wouldn't change a single thing

She's nearly there
She's not scared
Cause it won't be long now

Down by the station there's you
See what a ticket can do
Big dreams and nobody knows
Thursday's child, so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's child's got far to go

Don't ever let nobody stop you, do it
Whatever it is you wanna do
Be a little braver, a little crazy
Do what you feel
Cause it wont be long now

She's leaving
She's leaving
She's leaving
She's leaving
Thursday's child so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's child's got far to go

She's leaving
She's leaving
She's leaving
She's leaving
Thursday's child, so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's child's got far to go

Johnny was a girl everybody knew
Didn't give a damn, just passing through
Johnny was a girl everybody knew
Didn't give a damn, just passing through
Johnny was a girl

    General CommentThe title and line 'thursday's child's got far to go' are from a mother goose rhyme:
    Monday's child is fair of face,
    Tuesday's child is full of grace;
    Wednesday's child is full of woe,
    Thursday's child has far to go;
    Friday's child is loving and giving,
    Saturday's child works hard for its living;
    But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
    Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
