    Lyrics

    Shooting Star
    Johnny was a schoolboy when he heard his first Beatles song
    Love Me Do, I think it was, from there it didn't take him long
    Got himself a guitar, used to play every night
    Now he's in a rock and roll outfit and everything's allright
    Don't you know

    Johnny told his mama, "Hey, Mama I'm goin' away
    I'm gonna hit the big time, gonna be a big star some day"
    Mama came to the door with a teardrop in her eye
    Johnny said, "Don't cry Mama, smile and wave goodbye"

    Don't you know
    Don't you know that you are a shooting star
    And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are

    Johnny made a record, went straight up to number one
    Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing his song
    Watching the world go by, sometimes it can go so fast
    Johnny looked around him and said, "Damn I made the big time at last"

    Don't you know
    Don't you know that you are a shooting star
    And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are
    A shooting star. . .

    Johnny died one night, died in his bed
    Bottle o' whiskey, sleeping tablets by his head
    Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day
    And if you listen to the wind, you can still hear him play

    Don't you know
    Don't you know that you are a shooting star
    And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are
    A shooting star. . .
