Football, baseball, basketball games
Drinkin bear, kickin ass and takin down names
With the top down, get-a-round, shootin the line
Summer is here and Johnnys feelin fine

But Johnny cant read
Summer is over and hes gone to seed
Johnny cant read
He never learned nothin that hell ever need

Well, Johnny can dance and Johnny can love
Johnny can push and Johnny can shove
Johnny can hang out, Johnny can talk tough
Johnny can get down and Johnny can throw up

But Johnny cant read
Summer is over and hes gone to seed
You know that Johnny cant read
He never learned nothin that hell ever need

Well, is it teachers fault? Oh, no
Is it mommys fault? Oh, no
Is it societys fault? Oh, no
Well is it Johnnys fault? Oh, no

Couple years later, Johnnys on the run
Johnny got confused and he bought himself a gun
Well, he went and did something that he shouldnt oughta done
FBI on his tail, use a gun, go to jail

But Johnny cant read
Summer is over and hes gone to seed
You know that Johnny cant read
He never learned nothin that hell ever need

Well is it teachers fault? Oh, no
Is it mommy'ss fault? Oh, no
Is it the presidents fault? Oh, no
Well is it Johnnys fault? Oh, no

Johnny can dance and Johnny can love
Johnny can push and Johnny can shove
Johnny can pinball, Johnny can talk tough
Johnny can get down and Johnny can throw up

Johnny cant read
Johnny cant read

Well, recess is over
Recess is over

Sitcoms, T&A
Johnnys mind is blown away
Cop shows, horror flicks
Johnnys brain is full of bricks

Rock show, video
Boob tube, Rubiks cube
Game fools, Sunday school
Gain fans, gobble gangs
Wonka, wonka, wonka

Theres a new kid in town
