Title :

Surabaya Johnny


I was youngI was just sixteen then
when you came up from Burma one day.
And you told me to pack up my suitcase
and I didand you took me away.
I saidDo you work nice and steady,
or do you go sailing and roving out to sea?
And you saidI have a job on the railroad,
and baby, how swell it's all gonna be.
You said a lotJohnny. It was all lies.
You sure had me fooledright from the start.
I hate you when you laugh at me like that.
Take that pipe out of your mouthJohnny.

Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end?
Surabaya Johnny. Will the hurt ever mend?
Surabaya Johnny. OohI burn at your touch.
You got no heartJohnnybut ohI love you so much.

Ohat first you were kind and gentle
'til I packed up and went off with you.
And it lasted two weeks until one day
you laughed at me and hit me too.
You dragged me all over the city
up the river and down to the sea.
Now I look at myself in the mirror
and some old woman looks back at me.
You didn't want loveJohnnyyou wanted money.
I gave you all I had. You wanted more.
Ohdon't look at me that way.
I'm only trying to talk to you.
Wipe that grin off your faceJohnny.

Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end?
Surabaya Johnny. Will the pain never mend?
Surabaya Johnny. How I burn at your touch.
You got no heartJohnnybut ohI love you so much.

When we met I forgot to ask you
why they called you that funny name
but in every hotel on the seacoast
I found outand I loved you all the same.
I'm tired. I'm worn out.
The sea's pounding in my ears.
And I reach out my arms to hold you.
You're not here and who even cares?
You got no heartJohnny. You're just no good.
You going now? Ohtell me why.
I love you after allJohnnylike that very first day.
Don't laugh at me no moreJohnny.

Surabaya Johnny. Is it really the end?
Surabaya Johnny. Will the hurt ever mend?
Surabaya Johnny. OhI burn at your touch.
You got no heartJohnnybut ohI love you
I love youI love you so much.
