Words by Kay Darens

Ol' Johnny living oh he’s living driven by the river
He got himself a superphonic he’s out to give eh…

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.

He reads from A & B & C & D and goes to Astr8
He knows how to read this rockarolla mate
He reads from A & B & C & D and goes to Astr8
He knows how to sing…

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.

Revolution will not stop NO,
Revolution isn’t gonna end this way…
Revolution will not stop NO,
Cause revolution is FEMALE!

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.

Ho (x8)
