lyrics

VERSE:
Johnny was a young boy who liked to fool around
Never took life seriously, he was the class clown
Now he's getting older, things are still the same
When you gonna wake up and realize that it's not a game

CHORUS:
Johnny won't you wake up
Wake up, wake up
Johnny won't you wake up
Wake up, wake up

VERSE:
When he was in school he never understood the rules
At home his mom and dad, made him feel like he was bad
So he took to the street, got in trouble with the police
Parents picked him up from the station, kicked him out of home cause they lost their patients
Never made good grades, didn't get into a university
Had a dead end job, didn't like his boss feel like his getting robbed
So he joined the army
Wanted a house a wife and a baby
He died in a foreign land
Now his mom is at his funeral softly praying, saying

CHORUS:
Johnny won't you wake up
Wake up, wake up
Johnny won't you wake up
Wake up, wake up
