Have a seat
And I'll tell you a tale
Wasn't that long ago
About a guy who turned out to be a cheater
Got the heater, so the story goes

He tried to play on two friends
Thinkin' that they'd never know

They say he got caught in a trap
And it snapped
He's not around anymore

CHORUS:
Poor Johnny!
Came home, looking cool one day
Just wasn't lucky to come out that way
Once from the left
Then from the right
They took him down
Late that night

Now everyone in town
Knew he'd always played the rounds
But not a word was said

All the money and the clothes
And the cars that he drove
Just kept his ego fed

To his friends, he was king
'Cause he thought of everything
Except his number one

She had the kids and the house
While he was always out
Leaving his homework undone

CHORUS

Then one day his luck ran out
When number two found a number
And called his house

Word on the street is that they talked all night
They had to teach him a lesson
They had to make things right

Poor Johnny!
He came home, looking cool one day
Just wasn't lucky to come out that way

Once from the left
Then from the right
They took him down
Late that night

Poor Johnny (x3)
