The ballad of Johnny Cool

CD: Sammy & Friends.
Composer: Sammy Cahn/ James Heusen
Date: 1/64

This is the story of Johnny Cool.
It tells the tale of his life.
They say Johnny was meant to be.
And content to be.
Mixed up in sorrow and strife.
He lived by the gun and by the knife.
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)
He lived by the gun and by the knife.
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)

If you were friendly to Johnny Cool.
You were just playing the fool.
They say Johnny was friend to none.
Friend to only one.
He went by this simple rule.
That his only friend was Johnny Cool.
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)
That his only friend was Johnny Cool.
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)

Because he thought life had abused him.
He went on a murdering fling.
But he didn't know that they used him.
Like any old puppet on a string.
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)

Love never mattered to Johnny Cool.
Each doll to him was the same.
Till some babe blinked her eyes at him.
Sighed some sighs at him.
His icy heart turned to flames.
And Johnny was never quite the same
(Johnny Cool) (Johnny Cool)

One day they caught up to Johnny Cool.
Just like they promised they would.
They left real fear of death in him.
And some breath in him.
They'd bury him until he understood.
He paid for his evil ways but good.
And so ends the story of a fool.
(Johnny Cool)
The fool that was known as Johnny Cool.
