Lyrics - Johnny Z (Is A Real Cool Guy)

Johnny Z (Is A Real Cool Guy)
(Written by John Zambetti and Walter Egan, B-Side to "Baby Let's Run Away")

Hey!

Hey, have you heard a tale of a boy called Johnny?
Heís downright cool and he never feels funny
Yeah, but heíll keep you in stitches at the drop of a hat
If youíre feeliní lost, heíll show you where youíre at

Heís a friend of mine, now donít you see
Well Iím talkiní Ďbout the boy they call Johnny Z

Johnny Z is a real cool guy
Just like a Pepsi and a pizza pie
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)

Heís as cool as a moose
And you know Iím not lyiní
Cause he tops Donald Duck
And himself without tryiní

Heís spreadiní the legend
Up and down the land
When he makes lasagna
For your rock Ďní roll band

I remember the day
He became an M.D.
Iím talkiní Ďbout the boy
They call Johnny Z

Johnny Z is a real cool cat
Just like a new glove and a baseball bat
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Yeah

Hey Johnny Z is a real cool guy
(Real cool guy)
Just like some ketchup on your hot French fry
Johnny Z is a real cool cat
Just like a new glove and a baseball bat
Johnny Z is a real cool guy-uy-uy
Just like some Pepsi and a pizza pie

Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Oh well heís so cool
(Johnny Zís a cool guy)
Heís a cool guyÖ



Iím not entirely sure about these lyrics. Also, Walter starts talking near the end and I canít quite make out exactly what heís saying, so I didnít include that part. But you get the idea. This song was the B-side to ďBaby Letís Run AwayĒ and as far as I know has never been made available on compact disc.
