"Jonathan" as written by and Parry P./sherlock Gripp....
Straight out of Boston
To reinvent the modern rock and roll
He put down the cigarette and dropped out of B.U.

Too sensitive for this world
Too sensitive for that girl

He could look right through the Cezans
If he had a girlfriend
A g-i-are-l-f-are-e-n
In the astral plane

Too sensitive for this world
Too sensitive for that girl
Please God don't let me end up like Jonathan Richman
Turn the radio off [Repeat: x 4]

He was never called an asshole
As he would walk past the Fenway
Modern girls modern rock and roll
He's straight you're stoned

Too sensitive for this world
Too sensitive for that girl
Please God don't let me end up like Jonathan Richman
Turn the radio off [Repeat: x 4]

Please God don't let me end up like Jonathan
Please God don't let me end up like Jonathan
Please God don't let me end up being like Jonathan Richman
