"Johnny Comes Home" as written by Glen Burtnik and Kasim Sulton....
Johnny dropped out,
Johnny ran off on the next boat set to sail
Johnny rode on, stars in his eyes
With the sun setting on the trail
Then he hitch hiked from heaven to hell
And returned with a story to tell
And here it comes
Johnny go here, Johnny go there,
Johnny always got a lot to say
Everyone knows Johnny's in town
When the piper comes around
Well it's gonna be crazy tonite,
There'll be action and camera and lites
And here it goes

'cause when Johnny comes home he's the life of the party;
Back from around the world
And his stories are filled with pirates & poseurs,
Poets & party girls

Johnny found gold, Johnny found love,
Johnny found jesus in a bar
Everyone's heard all the tall tales
From the prodigal superstar
We believe every word of it all.
We just add in a measure of salt
And here we go

'cause when Johnny comes home he's the life of the party;
Back from another world
And his stories are filled with pirates & poseurs,
Poets & party girls

But he ran outa time on the clock,
Now their bringin' him home in a box
And there he goes

And when Johnny comes home he's the life of the party;
Back from around the world
And his stories are filled with pirates & poseurs, poets & party girls
