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’ve come 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, 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’s on top
Johnny’s in the spotlight…Johnny on the spot
