It seemed like any other Saturday
We had a little drink before the dance
The conversation was the usual
We covered foot-ball and romance

In walked Johnny dressed to kill all the girls
He didn't seem to have a care in the world
It seemed like any other Saturday
Had a little drink before the dance

So go, John go, John go, John go, John go
Oh baby
Go, John go, John go, John go, John go
Get it on, son

We stood there eyeing the availables
Old single men are easy meat
But Johnny stood on?????
___________________?

He tried real hard but they all knocked him back
It wasn't only his suit that was black
He watched us spooning the availables
Old lonely men are easy meat

So go, John go, John go, John go, John go
Oh go, John go, John go, John go, John go
Go on, son...get it up...get it on


Yeah...out there on floor...looking good....go, John


I was in the armchair reading the Sunday rags
When old Bill knocked upon the door
We need assistance to identify
Suicide number four
In his note, seemed that the last thoughts on his life
He had no ma, no pa
And so far, no wife

He didn't want another Saturday
He said “stay away...my last dance"

Oh no John, no John, no John, no John, no
No!
No John, no John, no John, no John, no, no, no

What you’re doing, John? What you’re doing?
Oh sorry that you’re gone, john
Yeah, you were like a, like a father to me
Like a father to me, like a father to me …
