Verse:
All the girls are cra - zy 'bout a cer - tain lit - tle lad,
Al - tho' he's ve - ry, ve - ry bad,  He could be, oh, so good when he want - ed to.
Bad or good he un - der - stood 'bout love and oth - er things,
For ev' - ry girl in town fol - lowed him a - round,  Just to hold his hand and sing:
 
Chorus:
Oh, John - ny!  Oh, John - ny!  How you can love!
Oh, John - ny!  Oh, John - ny!  Heav - ens a - bove!
You make my sad heart jump with joy,
And when your near I just can't sit still a min - ute,  I'm so,
Oh, John - ny!  Oh, John - ny!  Please tell me dear.
What makes me love you so?
You're not hand - some, its true,  But when I look at you,
I just,  Oh,  John - ny!  Oh, John - ny!  Oh!
