Lyrics

How long must I play the fool? You think I woulda learned back in school

But I was stupid…I was some kinda dense

Pretty stupid…but I’m comin' to my senses now

 

Late nights up to no good, funky business up in the hood

I’m confessin’ that I wasn’t too nice

Learned my lesson, but I paid a terrible price

 

When it looks like love but it smells like trouble

You better turn right around, jump down on the double

Johnny oughta know…Johnny’s on top

Johnny’s in the spotlight, uh-huh, Johnny on the spot

 

Touch fire, fingers will burn, this only took me a lifetime to learn

I was mistaken, now I’m makin’ amends

I was forsaken by my so-called friends

 

 No more drinkin' and drivin', no more cheatin on the side

No more chasin' after money, runnin' down numbers on a Saturday night

No more whiskey in the water, no more janey in the pipe

No more sneakin down the back stairs lookin to the left and the right

 

Johnny oughta know…Johnny on top

Johnny’s in the spotlight…Johnny on the spot
