Johnny Zero

Johnny Zero
(Don Christopher and Merle Kilgore)

Intro: Johnny got a Zero! Johnny got a Zero!

The kids all called him Johnny Zero!
In school they always used to say
Johnny got a Zero! Johnny got a Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Today! Hey! Hey!

The kids all laughed at Johnny Zero!
And they would tease him when they'd play
Johnny got a Zero! Johnny got a Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Today!

     He couldn't concentrate on studies
     His mind was always in the sky
     When he grew up he left his buddies
     And Johnny's learnin' how to fly.

Now they still call him Johnny Zero!
And all the pilots proudly say
Johnny got a Zero! He got another Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Hooray! Hey!
Johnny Zero is a Hero, today.

Ooh, looky at Johnny
Looky, looky at Johnny
Ooh, looky at Johnny
Johnny Zero! He's a Hero now
Hooray!, (Hooray!), Hooray!, (Hooray!)

The kids all called him Johnny Zero!
And ev'ry day in school they used to say
Johnny went and got a Zero! Johnny went and got a Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Today!

Oh! The kids would laugh at Johnny Zero!
They'd always tease him a lot when they'd play
Johnny got a Zero! Johnny got a Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Today!

     He never liked to get his lessons
     Why, he couldn't even figure 2 and 2 (2 and 2 and 2 and 2)
     But you'll admit that he's the best one
     When he takes off into the Blue.

Now they still call him Johnny Zero!
And all the pilots proudly say! Hey! Hey!
Johnny got a Zero! He got another Zero!
Johnny got a Zero! Today! Hey!
Johnny Zero is a Hero
Our Johnny is a Hero
Johnny Zero is a Hero! Today.
