"Johnny Was A Good Boy" as written by Robert Cuff and Ronald Nagle....
The boy next door you've known for years
Has up and made the headlines
In front page red he lost his head
There's been nothing like this in a long time
No no no John, they must be wrong
All his neighbors say
Johnny was a good boy
Did what he should boy
He just wouldn't act that way

They say he was everybody's friend
But now the people say he just may do it again

They interviewed the folks who knew him
For some dumb reason why
Ask his mom where she went wrong
She'll say "God knows I tried."
How could a good grade boy just go bad one day
Said he couldn't help himself
And police suspect foul play

So now they put him away
They say he's not a normal man
You never can tell
But well they say he may do it again

Animals all loved him
And he had a way with kids
It came as quite a shock to them
When they found out what he did

So now they put him away
They say he's not a normal man
You never can tell
But well they say he may do it again
