See Johnny Thunder sittin' on his motorbike
Ridin' along the highway
Rock 'n' roll songs from the nineteen-fifties
Buzzin' around in his brain

Johnny Thunder he's one of the original
Bebop generation
And he's got no time for complicated music
Or too much sophistication

He's one of the survivors
The motorbike riders
You ought to see Johnny Thunder
Ridin' down the highway

His one of the rock 'n' roll survivors
Twelve bars flowin' through his brain
He digs 'Jerry Lee Lewis', 'Dion And 'The Belmonts'
And 'Johnny And The Hurricanes'

He plays 'Hound Dog', oh boy and 'Great Balls Of Fire'
And boppin' at the high school hop
And he's got no time for phonies or posers
'Cause they don't know how to reel and rock

And he plays, little Egypt and ooh poo pah doo
And he plays, 'Poison Ivy' and 'Blue Suede Shoes'
'The Hollywood Argyles', 'Danny And 'The Juniors'
'Dion And The Belmonts', 'Johnny And The Hurricanes'

He's one of the survivors
The boppers and the jivers
Yeah, and he rocks all day
'Johnny and The Hurricanes', 'Johnny and The Hurricanes'

Got my freedom ridin' along the freeway
I ride a hundred miles an hour but I don't mess up my D.A.

Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' rollin'
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' rollin'
Rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' rollin'
Rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' rollin'
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' rollin'

Feel those vibrations flow into my brain
Got my freedom, ridin' down the highway
Keeps me sane, feel alive
I'm one of the survivors

Old Johnny Thunder looks a little overweight
And his sideburns are turnin' grey
But he still likes to bebop, boogie and jive
To his worn out seventy-eights

He's alright, he's one of the survivors
The boppers and the jivers
Yeah, and he rocks all day
'Johnny And The Hurricanes', 'Johnny And The Hurricanes'
