8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
All the girls are crazy 'bout a certain little lad,
Altho' he's very, very bad,  He could be, oh, so good when he wanted to.
Bad or good he understood 'bout love and other things,
For ev'ry girl in town followed him around,  Just to hold his hand and sing:
Oh, Johnny!  Oh, Johnny!  How you can love!
Oh, Johnny!  Oh, Johnny!  Heavens above!
You make my sad heart jump with joy,
And when your near I just can't sit still a minute,  I'm so,
Oh, Johnny!  Oh, Johnny!  Please tell me dear.
What makes me love you so?
You're not handsome, its true,  But when I look at you,
I just,  Oh,  Johnny!  Oh, Johnny!  Oh!
