Johnny Was A Genius                                              Words & Music by Elroy Cabeza

This is for all those men considered serious

Well the piano player Johnny was a genius


Incriminating allegations of viewing her in the nude

Legend has it that he wouldn’t change his attitude

You see they had to get Johnny

Run, Run, Johnny, Run


From Saint Louie, Missouri to the city Chicago, Illinois

The names on his songs was a criminal tactical ploy

Johnny was black

They took advantage of that


Represent the human race they shot him into outer space

Ride Johnny Ride

An alien might hear your call someday


How come you cannot write the songs like you used to do

Well, maybe because man, baby it wasn’t only you

A sweet hard sound

Hail Hail Rock and Roll
